If you’re thinking of buying a new Volkswagen T-Roc or Tiguan Allspace, you will have more variant options as Volkswagen has given both SUVs the R-Line treatment, and the’re already available to order across European countries.
The Volkswagen’s smallest SUV, T-Roc, now has four new variants include a 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine that produces 148bhp and is paired to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission, a bigger 2.0-litre TSI unit with 187bhp output and a DSG auto box as standard, and a 2.0-litre TDI diesel offering 148bhp with a six-speed manual transmission. The last two trim levels also come with the 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system.
T-Roc R-Line has 19-inch alloy wheels as part of its standard features. Designwise, it sports a restyled exterior with a body kit and body coloured roof spoiler that give it a sportier look. It also gets new sports suspension which lowers its ride height a little bit.
The interior brings a couple of features that confirms the identity of the R-Line, include chrome R-Line door sill inserts and a flat-bottomed R-Line steering wheel. In addition, the new model also has aluminium pedals.
The Volkswagen T-Roc R-Line is released with a starting price of £26,450 for the 1.5-litre TSI variant with a manual transmission.
The revisions that hit the Tiguan Allspace R-Line are intended to make it sporty too, with standard 20-inch alloy wheels and a customizable (through optional Dynamic Chassis Control) sport suspensions configuration.
The Tiguan Allspace R-Line comes in four variants include a pair of 2.0-litre TDI diesels offering 148bhp and 187bhp respectively, with the former being available with or without automatic gearbox and the 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system, while the latter has both as standard. This model launches with a £35,440 starting price.
