The basis of the SUV was the modular chassis MQB, which also built a hatchback VW Golf 7. At the same time, in terms of overall dimensions, T-Roc turned out to be even shorter than the latter. The overall length of the model is 4 230 mm, the wheelbase is 2,600, the width is 1,820, the ground clearance (ground clearance) is not specified. The volume of the trunk of the Volkswagen T-Roc is declared 445 liters, and with the rear seatbacks folded back, the compartment size is increased to 1,290 liters. Among the options available for the car on the technical side are the adaptive shock absorbers DCC and the steering gear with variable pitch teeth on the rail. As power units for the crossover, three petrol, and three diesel engines are available. The first is turbocharged TSI 1.0 (115 hp), 1.5 (150 hp) and 2.0 (190 hp) liters, and the TDI diesel engines are represented by “quads” for 115 forces ( 1.6 liters), as well as 150 and 190 “horses” (2.0 liters). The initial versions of the T-Roc are paired with a six-speed manual and all-wheel drive, while the top versions are equipped with a 7-band robotic DSG with two clutches and 4Motion four-wheel drive system with a multi-plate rear axle clutch and selective mode selector wheel. The company notes that the most dynamic 190-hp petrol variant gets a hundred from a place for 7.3 seconds, and its maximum speed reaches 228 km/h.
