2023 Volkswagen T-Roc price and specs

Volkswagen has revealed the pricing and standard specification of its updated T-Roc before it hits local showrooms in August.

The 2023 Volkswagen T-Roc range still kicks off with the Style, which now costs $37,250 before on-road costs. This is $1750 more than the pre-update version.

Replacing the Sport is the R-Line, which is priced at $45,250 before on-road costs. This is $2550 more expensive than the outgoing Sport, although the car also comes better equipped than before.

As previously detailed, the high-performance T-Roc R is also hitting local showrooms in August, and will cost $59,300 before on-road costs. Like the Style, it’s also more generously equipped than before.

This makes it a new entry point to Volkswagen’s growing R range, slotting in beneath the Golf R and the bigger Tiguan R.

Outside, the updated T-Roc has been given a refreshed front fascia with new standard features like privacy glass available across the range.

Inside, there’s a soft-touch dashboard with new features such as a 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit Pro, wireless phone charger and paddle shifters across the range.

The updated T-Roc also gains a range of new safety features, including the Travel Assist of highway driving assists.

Powering the entry-level T-Roc Style is a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 110kW of power and 250Nm of torque.

This is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with drive sent to the front wheels only.

The T-Roc R-Line uses a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 140kW and 320Nm. This is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, with drive sent through a 4Motion all-wheel drive system.

The high-performance T-Roc R is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 221kW and 400Nm. This is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, with drive sent through a 4Motion all-wheel drive system.

Volkswagen claims the T-Roc R can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.9 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds faster than the larger Tiguan R and one-tenth slower than the Golf R hatch.

Fuel Economy

The 2022 Volkswagen T-Roc has the following claimed fuel economy figures:

  • T-Roc Style: 6.3L/100km

The pre-update model measures 4246mm long, 1572mm tall, and 1819mm wide, with a 2595mm wheelbase.

Cargo volume with the rear seats upright in the pre-update 110TSI Style was 445 litres, dropping to and 392 litres in the 140TSI Sport. Folding the rear seats expands those figures to 1290L and 1237L respectively.
