Volkswagen has revealed the pricing and standard specification of its updated T-Roc before it hits local showrooms in August.

    UPDATE, 06/02/2023: Volkswagen Australia has increased the asking price of the core T-Roc range by between $500 and $1000 amid a wider price rise.

    “Shippings costs certainly aren’t diminishing. For as long as possible we shielded customers from associated price rises,” said a Volkswagen Australia spokesperson.

    “We do not allow orders made prior to the designated increase date to be subject to an extra impost.”

    UPDATE, 07/09/2022: Volkswagen’s original pricing announcement referred to late MY22 builds that are arriving in the country now. Pricing for MY23 models has now been released, as well as details of the new R Grid Edition.

    Due to component shortages, VW Australia has removed Side Assist (blind-spot) and Rear Traffic Alert systems for MY23, as well as the Proactive Occupant Protection System, which pre-tensions the seatbelts and closes the windows and sunroof if the vehicle detects a collision. As a result, the 2023 T-Roc Style and R-Line are $650 cheaper than MY22 versions to reflect these changes.

    The 2023 Volkswagen T-Roc range still kicks off with the Style, which now costs $37,100 before on-road costs.

    Replacing the Sport is the R-Line, which is priced at $45,200 before on-road costs. This is $2550 more expensive than the outgoing Sport, although the car also comes better equipped than before.

    As previously detailed, the high-performance T-Roc R is also hitting local showrooms in August, and will cost $60,300 before on-road costs. Like the Style, it’s also more generously equipped than before.

    This makes it a new entry point to Volkswagen’s growing R range, slotting in beneath the Golf R and the bigger Tiguan R.

    Outside, the updated T-Roc has been given a refreshed front fascia with new standard features like privacy glass available across the range.

    Inside, there’s a soft-touch dashboard with new features such as a 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit Pro, wireless phone charger and paddle shifters across the range.

    The updated T-Roc also gains a range of new safety features, including the Travel Assist of highway driving assists.


    MY23 Volkswagen T-Roc pricing:

    • 2023 Volkswagen T-Roc Style: $37,100 (+$500)
    • 2023 Volkswagen T-Roc R-Line: $45,200 (+$500)
    • 2023 Volkswagen T-Roc R Grid Edition: $54,300 (NEW)
    • 2023 Volkswagen T-Roc R: $60,300 (+$1000)

    All prices exclude on-road costs


    Powering the entry-level T-Roc Style is a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 110kW of power and 250Nm of torque.

    This is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with drive sent to the front wheels only.

    The T-Roc R-Line uses a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 140kW and 320Nm. This is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, with drive sent through a 4Motion all-wheel drive system.

    The high-performance T-Roc R is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 221kW and 400Nm. This is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, with drive sent through a 4Motion all-wheel drive system.

    Volkswagen claims the T-Roc R can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.9 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds faster than the larger Tiguan R and one-tenth slower than the Golf R hatch.

    Fuel Economy

    Claimed combined fuel economy (ADR):

    • T-Roc Style: 6.3L/100km
    • T-Roc R-Line: 7.3L/100km
    • T-Roc R: 8.3L/100km


    Final dimensions or cargo capacities for the updated T-Roc range haven’t been published, but it’s likely the measurements will remain identical to the pre-update car.

    The pre-update model measures 4246mm long, 1572mm tall, and 1819mm wide, with a 2595mm wheelbase.

    Cargo volume with the rear seats upright in the pre-update 110TSI Style was 445 litres, dropping to and 392 litres in the 140TSI Sport. Folding the rear seats expands those figures to 1290L and 1237L respectively.

    Servicing and Warranty

    The T-Roc, like all new Volkswagen models, is covered by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.

    Scheduled maintenance is required every 12 months or 15,000 kilometres – whichever comes first.

    Volkswagen offers three- and five-year Care Plans for all versions of the new T-Roc, costing $1350/$2250 for the Style, and $1550/$2600 for the R-Line.


    The T-Roc wears a five-star ANCAP safety rating based on tests conducted by Euro NCAP in 2017.

    It received an adult occupant protection score of 96 per cent, a child occupant protection score of 87 per cent, a pedestrian protection score of 79 per cent, and a safety assist score of 71 per cent.
