Volkswagen T-Roc 2022: Update in sight

Volkswagen T-Roc 2022: Update in sight

The compact SUV is already being seen on the roads of its country sporting a series of changes that will arrive next year.

  • The VW T-Roc is already preparing changes for next year
  • Its aesthetics will be renewed, although the changes will not be very noticeable
  • The range of engines could receive mild-hybrid technology

Over the last few days, our spy team stationed in Germany has been surprised by two different prototypes that were circulating on a road near the Volkswagen headquarters in Wolfsburg. Both, surprisingly, did not wear the usual camouflage that manufacturers use in this type of development test so that we can appreciate in greater detail the changes that the brand’s compact SUV will receive in a short time, that is, the T-Roc.

Renewed aesthetics

Looking ahead to the second part of its commercial life cycle, the Volkswagen T-Roc will receive a series of changes, not very deep, that will affect both aesthetics and equipment, without forgetting the mechanical section. For now, all we can see are the visual changes that are already installed on the prototype images, the most prominent one that affects the optical groups, as the front now comprise the daytime running lights and the rear display a novel lighting signature.

In addition, the front grille will debut a redesign and it will say goodbye to the two horizontal bars in favor of a single transverse element, while design changes are also expected in the bumper. The same modifications will appear on the T-Roc with an R-Line finish, plus a much more aggressive front apron that mimics the huge air intakes of the T-Roc R and a sportier rear bumper. As we can see in the images, the white prototype is the one that corresponds to this most attractive finish.

Our spies have not been able to photograph the interior of these two copies, so we imagine that the changes will affect the upholstery, decorative moldings, and the infotainment system. In addition, the equipment is expected to be more generous, especially with regard to aids and driver assistance systems.

With regard to the mechanical part, it is possible that Volkswagen is betting on light hybridization, some of the engines benefiting from a distinctive ECO that until now has not reached the compact SUV range. Recall that the T-Roc is available with diesel and gasoline engines, with powers ranging from 110 to 190 horsepower, not to mention the 300 CV of the R sports version. The transmission can be a six-speed manual or DSG automatic. seven, with the possibility of having a four-wheel drive on some versions.

Our spies tell us that the updated T-Roc will hit dealerships in the spring or summer of 2022, while the T-Roc R will do the same in late fall. It remains to be seen if the convertible bodywork will also benefit from the update, or if it will instead disappear from Volkswagen’s plans. We will be attentive to future news.
