The T-Roc is set to get a fun refresh as the new T-Roc cabriolet is unveiled for the first time ahead of its full Frankfurt Motor Show 2019 presentation. This new cross over model is the first of its kind within the compact SUV market.
The new T-Roc Cabriolet promises to breathe some fresh air into the idea of compact SUV’s and delivers a unique driving experience of a convertible with the performance that you expect from the compact SUV.
Two efficient petrol turbo engine models will be offered for the front-wheel-drive Cabriolet (85kW/115PS and 110kW/150PS respectively) with a manual six-speed gearbox as standard with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox available as an additional option. Style and R-Line packages will also be offered to customers as an optional extra with the R-Line package offering sports-tuned running gear and progressive steering with speed-dependent steer controls amongst other additions.
Maximum safety for passengers has been woven into the design with some really clever safety features. The T-Roc cabriolet will feature rollover protection which extends behind the rear seats. The system springs up in in a fraction of a second in the area of the rear headrests in response to exceeding defined lateral acceleration or vehicle tilt. Structural modifications have been made to strengthen the chassis and a reinforced windscreen frame have been added to maximise safety.
The soft top roofing can also be electronically raised and lowered. It takes just 9 seconds for the automatic roof to open and can even be lowered while the car is in motion (maximum speed of 18mph). As the roof unlocks and locks electromechanically, you will never have to worry about ensuring that your roof is locked properly or struggle with manually putting your roof up.
The T-Roc Cabriolet will utilise the new next-gen infotainment system (MIB3) which takes advantage of the ‘Always on’ technology to ensure that your vehicle is permanently online. This provides the driver with internet connectivity to open up a whole range of new services and functions to enhance the driving experience and vehicle performance. When used with the optional Active Info Display, the cabriolet will have a fully digital cockpit landscape for drivers to use. Having everything at your fingers tips and easily accessible ensure that you can focus on enjoying the fun driving experience that a convertible provides.
The new T-Roc Cabriolet is set to make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September with a launch being aimed for spring 2020. We can’t wait to see the official unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show and will, of course, bring you more details as they are released.
