Based on the same platform as the Golf, the T-Roc 110TSI Style is priced from $33,990, meaning it will sit between the smaller, Polo-based T-Cross 85TSI Style and the T-Roc 140TSI Sport that are priced from $30,990 and $40,490, respectively (all pricing + ORCs).
According to Volkswagen Australia’s Director of Customer Experience and Marketing, Jason Bradshaw, the 110TSI Style is an ideal member of their SUV family.
“The T-Roc 110TSI Style is the major variant we’ve been awaiting to complete our SUV showroom. The T-Roc 110TSI Style is the sweet spot in Volkswagen’s new compact SUV range; a bridge between the T-Cross Style and the T-Roc Sport.
“Because such a competitive price has been secured for the T-Roc Style, it takes the place originally envisaged for the proposed four-cylinder version of the T-Cross. Since its April release, the T-Cross has received particular praise for its frugal, feisty three-cylinder engine variants.”
The 110TSI Style is powered by a 110kW/250Nm 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Listed fuel economy is 6.2lt/100km, and unlike the AWD 140TSI Sport, the 110TSI Style is available in front-wheel drive only.
Standard features include 18-inch wheels, LED head and tail lights, keyless entry, an electro-mechanical parking brake, electro-mechanical power steering, dual zone climate control air con and a Composition Media 8.0-inch infotainment system.
Standard safety tech includes Lane Assist, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, City Emergency Brake with Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control and Park Assist with a rear-view camera.
Option packs include a Sound & Vision package that adds Discover Media sat nav and upgrades the infotainment and dash display, and the Luxury package that includes leather-appointed trim, heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof and power tailgate.
The T-Roc range was due for an Australian release in April, but production delays, allegedly due to specific parts required to fit Australian-spec child seat anchors, mean this has now been pushed back to September.
