The sporty characteristics of the Volkswagen T-Roc R are underscored by the specific, unmistakable design on the exterior and in the interior. The exterior of the powerful crossover has some major differences compared to its more conservative counterparts. The specially redesigned radiator grille has a polished silver band of anodised aluminium on the underside that runs the entire width of the vehicle. The “R” logo can be clearly seen on the radiator grille, and it is mirrored by a specific design strip which runs over the side panels and doors. The bumper – which was developed specifically for this model – has a sporty design and is painted in the same colour as the vehicle at the front and back. The light units in the independent, vertically arranged daytime running lights are integrated into the bumper at the front. In addition, the adapted underbody guard in the same colour as the trim and the specific air inlets are typical of the “R” design.
The view of the rear is characterised by an equally sporty bumper in the same colour as the vehicle, and includes visual air outlets in the upper part and an “R” diffuser in a contrasting colour. The double-ended exhaust system on both the left and right are specific to the “R” model. The T-Roc R is equipped with 18-inch Spielberg alloy wheels as standard. The 19-inch Pretoria dark graphite matt alloy 235/40 R19 wheels are available as an optional extra.
Design elements created exclusively for the Volkswagen T-Roc R include the elegant mirror caps in a matt chrome look, a roof spoiler and door add-ons in the colour of the vehicle, the skid plate painted in an accent colour, black embossed and slightly widened wheel arches, and black brake callipers with a clear “R” logo on the high-performance braking system. In terms of the vehicle body paintwork for the sportiest T-Roc R model, customers have a choice between the exclusive R colour Lapiz Blue Metallic or Pure White Uni, Flash Red Uni, Turmeric Yellow Metallic, White Silver Metallic, Energetic Orange Metallic, Deep Black Pearl Effect and Indium Grey Metallic. The roof can be painted black in connection with all colour options if desired.
