    Available in only those two trim levels, buyers can also choose from two petrol engines; a 113bhp 1.0-litre TSI producing 200Nm of torque, and a 1.5TSI delivering 148bhp and 250Nm of torque. The latter is available with a 7-speed DSG transmission — a £1500 option — in addition to 6-speed manual versions of both.

    Aside from the fabric folding roof — which can be lowered in nine seconds and raised in 11 seconds — the T-Roc Cabriolet is distinct from the standard T-Roc in its two-door body style and its wheelbase, which has been extended by 40mm compared with its five-door, solid-roof sibling. This allows maximum room for passengers in the cabin, as well as a useful 284-litre boot capacity. (Related: VW reveals all-new Golf MkVIII)


    Design trim features 17in ‘Mayfield’ alloy wheels as standard, with 18in ‘Montego Bay’ and ‘Sebring’ wheels available as options. Inside, an 8.0in Discover Navigation infotainment system is fitted, with wireless App-Connect smartphone connectivity, along with 2Zone climate control and a six-speaker sound system. Among the arsenal of driver assistance systems included on the Design trim Cabriolet are Front Assist with pedestrian monitoring, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Assist and a driver alertness monitor with fatigue detection.

    R-Line trim inherits the conventional T-Roc R-Line’s 19in ‘Suzuka’ wheels, although another set of attractive 19in ‘San Marino’ alloys are an option, and exclusive to the T-Roc Cabriolet. The R-Line also gets VW’s Active Info Display fitted as standard, in addition to bespoke R-Line trim pieces and features across the interior, including sports seats embroidered with the R logo, and a sports steering wheel. On the outside, this trim level is distinguished by an aggressive R-Line body kit, fog lights with static cornering function, LED headlights and sports suspension, which is lowered by 20mm compared with the standard running gear of the T-Roc.


    Both the Design and R-Line specs are available in Pure White, Deep Black Pearl, Ivory Silver Metallic, Turmeric Yellow Metallic, Kings Red Metallic and Ravenna Blue Metallic; with Ivy Green and Smokey Grey Metallic reserved exclusively for the T-Roc Cabriolet.


    “The T-Roc Cabriolet is uniquely positioned to pick up where the Golf and Beetle Cabriolet models left off,” Claire Haynes, T-Roc Product Manager, said. “As per its Golf-based predecessor, the T-Roc Cabriolet offers a wind-in-the-hair experience while driving one of Europe’s best-selling models. A duo of stylish specifications and a trio of engine and gearbox configurations keep things simple.”
