Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet Is Happening

Previewed as a concept back in 2016, the Volkswagen T-Roc convertible is coming as a production version.

In fact, Volkswagen plans to unveil its T-Roc Cabriolet SUV at the upcoming Frankfurt Auto Show. The new T-Roc convertible will join a growing list of drop-top SUVs revealed in recent years like the Range Rover Evoque Convertible. And who can forget the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet?

We don’t have the Volkswagen T-Roc in North America just yet. Although we do expect to see the entry-level VW SUV makes it way here eventually, we probably won’t get the cabriolet version for obvious reasons that very few people would buy it…

That means that we are missing out on a remarkable 283 litres of cargo space, and a base 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine making 114 horsepower. Thank goodness for European consumers, there is a turbocharged four-cylinder with 148 horsepower.

We will say this about the new Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet, it doesn’t look bad with the top up. The rear three-quarter look is a bit off, but from the side the soft cloth top actually fits with the rest of the SUV.

That said, if the dictionary had a section for pointless cars, a front-wheel drive convertible SUV with 114 hp and less than 300 litres of cargo space would be a headliner.
