Volkswagen is gearing up to reveal a facelifted version of its T-Roc SUV.

The 2022 T-Roc, which sits between the smaller T-Cross and larger Tiguan in the Volkswagen range, is on track to arrive in Australia during July 2022 barring any supply delays.

The line-up will be topped by the T-Roc R, powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine mated with all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The current model has 221kW of power and 400Nm of torque, but the Golf R and Tiguan R both have a version of the same EA888 engine with 235kW and 420Nm. The updated T-Roc R could benefit from the same motor.

As is currently the case, the regular T-Roc range will include 110TSI Style and 140TSI Sport options when the update arrives in July.

The 110TSI Style features a 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine making 110kW and 250Nm, while the 140TSI Sport packs a 2.0-litre turbo petrol with 140kW and 320Nm of torque.

The upcoming T-Roc facelift doesn’t look markedly different from the current model.

The tester is an R-Line, and has a bumper that’s been redesigned to more closely mirror that of the new Tiguan and Golf.

The headlights have slightly different graphics, and the rear appears to be wearing new bumpers, but there’s a reason Volkswagen hasn’t bothered with much in the way of camouflage.

It’s not clear what will change behind the wheel, but the Tiguan was recently updated with a new touch-based climate control setup and revised infotainment.

A similar suite of changes is likely for the T-Roc.
