With its sporty appearance and a massive list of available powertrains Volkswagen’s new T-Roc crossover turned out to be one quite interesting model, so it’s not any wonder at all why the German car manufacturer made a short-term plan to expand the offer to the 2020 VW T-Roc Convertible. A far as we’ve managed to find out, the open-top model is going to arrive either late next year or in early 2020. Either way, the camouflaged prototype has been spotted already, and here’s what we know so far:
You don’t have to be any genius at all to figure out what’s hiding in the front. Yes, the cabriolet gets the same treatment as its regular sibling and it gets a pair of narrow headlights and a slatted grille which has been outlined by chrome strips. At the very bottom, the 2020 VW T-Roc Convertible is going to host a massive air dam that covers a pretty big part of the front fascia. In the rear, things are essentially different. The cabriolet model gets a boot lid where it holds its soft top. Essentially, the rear hatch is pretty much identical to one of the previous-generation Golf Cabriolet. Just look at the side of the prototype and say what the first thing you saw is. Yes, the T-Roc Convertible has two doors only and yes they are notably longer in order to enable an easier access to the second row of sets.
We haven’t seen the interior of the 2020 VW T-Roc Convertible so far, but we think it’s going to mirror the regular model. It means that in addition to the sporty exterior lines you can also expect an attractive and leather treated cabin with lots of space, and well though dashboard. Also, the base model should be paired with a 6.5-inch infotainment touchscreen display, while the upscale version of the SUV hosts an eight-inch system coupled with standard navigations. Still, regardless of the fact how cool all of this is going to be, the most impressive part of the vehicle is going to be an 11.7-inch digital instrument cluster which looks as it’s made for some more upscale models.
There’s no official info regarding available powertrains under the hood of the 2020 Volkswagen T-Roc Convertible, but we think that the open-top model is going to feature the same trio of gasoline options that are available with the regular model. The starting 1.0-liter unit produces 113 horsepower and 147 pound-feet of twist and it’s going to be available under the hood of the starting option. The soft-top model will also have a 1.5-liter engine that develops 147 ponies and 184 lb-ft of twist at most, while the vanilla option should be fitted with a 2.0-liter mill that pumps out 187 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of grunt. A seven-speed DSG transmission and all-wheel drive will be standard options.
The convertible T-Roc will be produced at the Osnabruck plant in Germany.
