The Volkswagen T-Roc has been given an added dose of style with the introduction of a new Black Edition trim level, adding black-coloured trim and additional equipment.
* From £23,750 for 113hp 1.0-litre TSI
Following on from the Touareg receiving the Black Edition trim in December 2019, the T-Roc Black Edition brings black-finishes to its grille trim, door mirror caps, roof rails and exhaust pipes, as well as adding rear privacy glass, an eye-catching geometric decal on the car’s C-pillar, 18-inch ‘Arlo Black’ alloy wheels and LED headlights.
The ‘black’ theme continues on the inside with ‘Piano Black’ dash pads, black roof lining, leather-wrapped gearshift knob and multifunction sports steering wheel with contrasting grey stitching, white ambient lighting and footwell illumination.
When specified individually, the additional equipment would cost in excess of £2,000, so the new model represents a considerable value boost, especially when combined with the extra style delivered by the Black Edition-exclusive accessories. As per the rest of the T-Roc range, the Black Edition is available with a host of options to further personalise and add to the equipment list of each car, with Vienna leather upholstery, a ‘beats’ audio sound pack and sports suspension. The T-Roc Black Edition starts at £23,750 for the 1.0-litre, 113hp TSI petrol manual model.
The Black Edition builds on the generously-equipped T-Roc SE, the standard equipment for which includes adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, electrically heated and foldable door mirrors with integrated puddle lights, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.
The T-Roc Black Edition is available only in front-wheel drive and features 1.0- and 1.5-litre TSI petrol and 1.6- and 2.0-litre TDI diesel engined variants, with 113 and 148hp outputs respectively. Despite being a Black Edition, the T-Roc’s vibrant colour palette remains, meaning ten colours are available to complement the Black Edition’s black add-ons
