The Power of Beauty

Impressive design and performance

The Volkswagen T‑Roc R exudes outstanding performance in our most compact five-seater SUV. It boasts high-quality features and generates that iconic ‘R thing’ in terms of pure driving excitement and outright fun. The new T‑Roc R stands for breathtaking agility and powerful design combined with everyday usability, it’s the ideal compact sports SUV for either the inner city or the more rural country roads across New Zealand.


There are many highlights in the T‑Roc R. Here are three at a glance:

Power that you can feel

Fasten your seat belt and enjoy the pure G-force: 221kW and 400Nm make it all possible.


Digital performance

The strong R personality is underlined by distinctive details such as the chrome-look mirror covers.



Absolute power of a sports car

Listen to your inner drive

The 2.0L TSI is a highly responsive turbocharged engine, which is designed to deliver maximum torque of 400Nm from an engine speed as low as 2,000rpm.

Titanium exhaust system
