MILTON KEYNES, England - December 6, 2017: Volkswagen’s confident new compact SUV, the T-Roc, now has more models available for order in Retailers nationwide as the brand gears up for the car’s showroom debut later this month.

Joining the line-up of six models already available to order in the UK is the entry-level T-Roc S 1.0 TSI 115 PS six-speed manual which is priced at £18,950 RRP OTR. Alongside this, and similarly available to order for the first time, is the luxurious T-Roc SEL 2.0 TDI 150 PS 4MOTION six-speed manual. Representing the first diesel offering in the car’s line-up, this model is priced at £28,345 RRP OTR.

The T-Roc sees Volkswagen enter a fresh market segment with this stylish and sporty new model. Sitting beneath the established and extremely popular Tiguan SUV, and above the forthcoming new T-Cross small SUV, the T-Roc represents a key element of Volkswagen’s ongoing SUV offensive.

Meanwhile, completing its line-up of available models is the Arteon – Volkswagen’s avant-garde gran turismo with svelte fastback styling. The new five-door, five-seat Volkswagen combines sports car detailing with luxury motoring in a muscular, elegant design.

Sitting above the globally successful Passat in the comprehensive Volkswagen range the Arteon brings more space, premium functionality and greater levels of autonomy than ever before.

Now, UK buyers are able to choose from the Arteon’s full range of engine and trim combinations which is, today, completed with the addition of the 1.5 TSI Evo 150 PS six-speed manual and 1.5 TSI Evo 150 PS seven-speed DSG versions. Equipped with this new drivetrain option the cars, available in Elegance or R-Line trim, are priced from £31,005 RRP OTR.

The forthcoming new Polo – arriving in Retailer showrooms in January next year – is also now available to order in an expanded trim and engine line-up.

The main focus of the new sixth generation Polo is a major increase in cabin and luggage space within larger external dimensions alongside the debut of new engines, sharper design, new ‘big car’ assistance systems, the application of a new generation of infotainment systems and the global debut of the second generation of Volkswagen’s Active Info Display.

A selection of new Polo models have been available to order in the UK since October, and now this line-up grows to include the 1.0 TSI 75 PS five-speed manual in SE and Beats trims, as well as the 1.0 TSI 115 PS six-speed manual and seven-speed DSG in SEL trim. Prices for these new Polo engine/trim combinations start from £15,060 RRP OTR.
