The VW T-Roc R Is A Hot, Golf-Like Crossover With 296bhp

Welcome, PHers of the world, to the Volkswagen T-Roc R.

The T-Roc R is closely related to the Golf R in the powertrain and underpinnings departments.

Under the bonnet the Volkswagen T-Roc R features the company's 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine tuned to deliver 221kW of power and 400Nm of torque. All that shimmy gets channeled through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and a Haldex all-wheel drive system.

It has the same 17-inch braking system as the Golf range-topper, along with lower, stiffer suspension and progressive steering which tightens the ratio the more you turn the wheel. When you really want to have fun, there's a race mode, and stability control can be turned off. Confirmed colours - for a vehicle still officially a concept, don't forget - have been announced as Lapiz Blue (from the Golf R), Metallic or Pure White Uni, Turmeric Yellow, Flash Red, Energetic Orange, Deep Black Pearl, White Silver and Iridium Grey.

Granlund traded to Predators by Wild
He was a first-round pick (11th overall) in 2014 by Nashville when Wild General Manager Paul Fenton ran the Predators' draft. According to reports, he has agreed to terms on a two-year extension with an average annual value of $3.25 million.

The T-Roc fits into the R family with a more muscular-looking front end that gains a deeper front bumper, LED daytime running lights, model-specific 19-inch alloy wheels, and four oval exhaust outlets.

Changes to the interior include a flat-bottom leather-clad steering wheel, white ambient lighting, paddle shifters, stainless steel pedals, and microfibre seat bolsters.

Need another VW bingo box ticked? We can but hope for a auto of the Golf Clubsport S's dynamic mastery, famously also brought to life on the Nurburgring. This combination allows the T-Roc R to hit 0-62 miles per hour in 4.9 seconds before maxing out at an electronically-limited 155 miles per hour.
