Yes, Volkswagen is making a T-Roc Cabriolet

Published 14 August 2019

Volkswagen hopes to succeed where the Range Rover Evoque failed, with a soft-top version of its T-Roc Crossover expected to start at around £25,000 when it goes on sale in Spring 2020.

Set to be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September, Volkswagen has released these images of a near production concept of the T-Roc Cabriolet ahead of its official debut.

The first Volkswagen convertible on sale since the Beetle Cabriolet was axed from the range last year, it features an electric roof which can be dropped at speeds of up to 19mph and can be opened in nine seconds.

Upgrades over the standard T-Roc include a rollover protection system which can be deployed within a fraction of a second, along with a reinforced windscreen frame.

Customers will be able to choose between Style and R-Line equipment lines, while the T-Roc Cabriolet will be initially be offered with 1.0- (115PS) and 1.5-litre (150PS) petrol engines. Buyers will also be able to choose between a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The Evoque cabrio did for SUV chop-tops what VW did for diesels. This is a niche that doesn't need exploring.

Looks great fun. It's what I'd go for when I'm too infirm to get in & out of my MX5.

The MX5 is one of the few cars this elderly and infirm person can get in and out of. I almost bought one last year until I tested an E300 Cabriolet which is easier to get into. I cannot get into most SUVs because they have small doors. 2 doors are always easier.

I test drove an Evoque Convertible. Easy to get into but you couldn't drive with the roof down due to tyre noise. The steering by negotiation and lack of suspension were other factors. The number one, however, was the skip and tarpaulin looks.

This looks better (indeed VW used a convertible for the T-Roc concept) - we'll see
