Volkswagen has revealed pricing and specifications for the 2022 Volkswagen T-Roc R, the performance version of its Golf-based small SUV.

Starting from $59,300 plus on-road costs and arriving in Australia in August, the Volkswagen T-Roc R will be the third Volkswagen R performance vehicle released in 2022, following the Golf and Tiguan R.

It will form part of the facelifted T-Roc small SUV range – though details for the less potent, non-R 110TSI and 140TSI variants are yet to be announced.



Powered by a 221kW/400Nm version of the ‘EA888’ 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder used in the Golf R and Tiguan R, it also uses a similar performance 4Motion all-wheel drive system and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. VW claims a 4.9-second 0-100km/h time.

Standard features include 19-inch Estoril alloy wheels, nappa leather upholstery, an electric tailgate, sport steering, and adaptive suspension.

Volkswagen’s IQ Drive safety suite also comes for the asking price, with adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, autonomous emergency braking and adaptive LED headlights.



Options for the 2022 Volkswagen T-Roc R include a panoramic sunroof ($2000), black exterior styling package ($1200), a Beats sound system ($750) and a Lapiz Blue matte interior highlights pack ($250).

The 2022 Volkswagen T-Roc R will arrive in local showrooms this August, as part of the facelifted T-Roc range.
