New Volkswagen T-Roc 110TSI Style 2021 pricing and specs detailed: Hyundai Kona rival gets entry-level variant

The T-Roc 110TSI Style is on its way to shake things up in Volkswagen’s SUV line-up.

Volkswagen Australia has backflipped on its decision to bring in a 110TSI Style flagship version of the T-Cross light SUV, instead announcing the November launch of a similarly named entry-level variant of the T-Roc small SUV.

Why the change? Volkswagen Australia says it was able to secure “such a competitive price” for the T-Roc 110TSI Style, which made it the obvious choice to slide in between the T-Cross 85TSI Style and T-Roc 140TSI Sport in its SUV range.

So, how much does the T-Roc 110TSI Style cost? It checks in at $33,990 plus on-road costs, which is $3000 more than the T-Cross 85TSI Style and $6500 less than the T-Roc 140TSI Sport.

Although the Golf-based T-Roc 110TSI Style produces the same 110kW of power and 250Nm of torque as the proposed Polo-based T-Cross 110TSI Style, its turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine displaces 1.4 litres instead of 1.5, owing to its older mechanical parts.

The former also uses an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission instead of the latter’s seven-speed dual-clutch unit. Either way, drive is exclusively sent to the front wheels.

The T-Roc 110TSI Style’s fuel consumption on the combined-cycle test is 6.2 litres per 100 kilometres, while the T-Cross 110TSI Style would’ve managed about 5.3L/100km.

Also of note, the T-Roc 110TSI Style doesn’t come with independent rear suspension, as it has a torsion beam in place of the T-Roc 140TSI Sport’s multi-link set-up.

Nonetheless, standard equipment in the T-Roc 110TSI Style includes dusk-sensing LED headlights and tail-lights, rain-sensing wipers, 18-inch Montego Bay alloy wheels, power-folding side mirrors, keyless entry and chrome roof rails.

Inside, an 8.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, dual-zone climate control, front comfort seats and LED ambient lighting feature.

Advanced driver-assist systems extend to autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, park assist and a reversing camera.

Two major options are available: the $2000 Sound & Vision (satellite navigation, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a Beats sound system) and $3800 Luxury (a power-operated tailgate, a panoramic sunroof, heated front seats and Vienna leather upholstery) packages.

No-cost colour options include Pure White and Flash Red, while the Turmeric Yellow, Ravenna Blue, Energetic Orange, White Silver and Indium Grey metallic paintworks all command a $600 premium. No matter the hue, the side-mirror covers, A-pillars and roof panel are all finished in gloss black.
