Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet – a series of convertible SUVs that are extremely rare in the popular car segment will be unveiled at Frankfurt exhibition next September.
Convertible SUV is quite a strange segment and also quite picky customers, not to mention the difficulties in design and manufacture, so many car companies are desperate to step in. However, the current Volkswagen fleet is basically completed whether it is a sedan, hatchback or SUV, so the German automaker needs a really new wind to refresh the image and so is the T-Roc Cabriolet.
Predicted by the company as the first and only convertible SUV in its history, the T-Roc Cabriolet officially presents its global customer in September at the Frankfurt show. Instead of simply eliminating the standard T-Roc ceiling, the German brand upgraded almost comprehensively both the body and chassis to match the new design.
The wheelbase of the SUV increased by 37 mm, the total length was also extended by 34 mm. In addition, many parts are reinforced to compensate for the overall balance loss due to the lack of a ceiling ceiling such as roars, hips, doors and front windshield.
The newly added soft-top convertible, developed by Volkswagen, is capable of folding in 9 seconds when the vehicle operates at a speed of less than 30 km / h with a generally similar mechanism to the Golf Cabriolet. The minus point (which few people are interested in buying a convertible) is the rear luggage compartment significantly affected when narrowing the loss of 161 from the original figure of 284 liters.
The engine options that come with T-Roc Cabriolet will be 1.0L 3 cylinders 113 hp and 1.5L 4 148 hp cylinders accompanied by 6-speed manual gearbox and automatic dual-clutch 7 level.
VW commits its customers in markets where T-Roc is open for sale and will have access to the convertible and will soon expand its operations to reach more global consumers.
