The T-Roc was designed to be a stylish and sporty SUV with a focus on performance and handling. The vehicle quickly gained popularity and became one of Volkswagen's best-selling models in the UK. In 2020, Volkswagen introduced an updated T-Roc, which included new technology and improved safety features. The T-Roc is still available in the UK and continues to be a popular choice for those seeking a stylish and practical SUV.

The T-Roc was built on Volkswagen's modular MQB platform, which it shares with several other Volkswagen Group vehicles, including the Audi Q2 and the SEAT Ateca. The platform was designed to be highly versatile and adaptable, allowing for a range of different sizes and body styles to be built on the same basic architecture.

The T-Roc quickly gained a reputation as a versatile and capable SUV with impressive handling and a range of advanced safety and technology features. The car's interior was designed to be spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room for passengers and luggage. Standard features included a touchscreen infotainment system, air conditioning, and a range of safety features, including automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning.




Over the years, the T-Roc has evolved and adapted to changing market conditions and customer demands. New trim levels have been added, including the Life, Style, and R models, each offering a unique blend of performance, technology, and style. The T-Roc has undergone several updates and revisions. In 2020, Volkswagen announced that it would be discontinuing the T-Roc in the UK due to slow sales. However, in a surprising turn of events, the T-Roc is still available for purchase in the UK as of 2023, with a range of new and updated features.
