Used Volkswagen T-Roc for Sale | Buy online with Finance
Is a used VW T-Roc a good buy?
The sporty looking VW T-Roc is one of the best small SUVs around. It’s about the same size as a Volkswagen Golf, albeit higher-riding of course, while it rivals other small SUVs such as the similar SEAT Arona and the popular Ford Puma.
Despite the sporty looks, it’s actually a very comfortable car - whatever specification you go for - with supportive seats and soft suspension that makes for a relaxing ride.
The VW T-Roc range has been around since 2018, but the high-performance VW T-Roc R version only joined the lineup in 2019 and the unusual-looking Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet has only been around since 2020.
Whatever version you’re considering, the VWT-Roc is a comfortable, flexible, and spacious companion. And unless you’re looking for the much rarer and newer VW T-Roc R or VW T-Roc Cabriolet models, there are plenty of nearly new and used models around to choose from.
Which used VW T-Roc should you buy?
Four-wheel drive is available, but only on the more powerful petrol and diesel engines, the rest of the Volkswagen T-Roc range is two-wheel drive. Gearbox choices include a six-speed manual and a seven-speed 'DSG' automatic - though again, the automatic is only available with the more powerful engines.
What used VW T-Roc trim levels are available?
The VW T-Roc range echoes other VW model ranges with S, SE and SEL the core versions that you'll see for sale. The mid-spec SE is the most popular (no surprise there) and offers useful extra kit over the S such as parking sensors and automatic climate control.
VW T-Roc S
The entry-level VW T-Roc S is only available with the 1.0-litre 110hp petrol engine and the 115hp 2.0-litre diesel engine, so you don't have much in the way of choice here, but it’s nevertheless reasonably well equipped.
Among the highlights are 16-inch alloy wheels, climate control, lane assist, and automatic emergency braking, which also keeps an eye out for pedestrians.
VW T-Roc SE
Moving up a trim level to the SE brings larger 17-inch alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, power-folding door mirrors, body-coloured bumpers and a chrome grille. Inside, there are height-adjustable front seats, plus automatic climate control to replace manual air-conditioning. It also offers adaptive cruise control, which is a useful feature on busy British motorways.
SE is by far the most popular trim level for the T-Roc, so there should be a wide range of used models on offer and you should be able to find a great deal on BuyaCar.
VW T-Roc United
VW T-Roc United models have a different style of alloy wheels to the SE, plus daytime running lights and heated front seats - other than that it’s pretty similar to SE specification.
VW T-Roc Black Edition
VW T-Roc Black Edition models get black 18-inch alloy wheels, a ‘Black Edition’ styling pack, black roof rails, and tinted windows.
VW T-Roc Design
Design specification brings a wide range of customisation options, so used models in this trim offer a lot more visual variety. Among the best features offered on the T-Roc Design are the twin trapezoidal exhaust trims, the option of a roof and door mirrors painted in a contrasting colour to the rest of the body and interior ambient lighting.
VW T-Roc SEL
Specified from new, the T-Roc SEL will cost several thousand pounds more than a Design model, but on the used market the differences in price are much more narrow - especially when it comes to PCP finance monthly payments.
For your money, you get plenty of high-tech kit, including LED headlights, front sport seats, a driver fatigue detection system, and a digital screen that replaces the conventional analogue dials - and which can be configured to show a full-width sat-nav map.
VW T-Roc R Line
R-Line models are where the T-Roc starts to get more sporty. These come with smart-looking 19-inch alloys, plus sports suspension, which gives them a firmer ride. They also get automatic range adjustment on the LED headlights, plus heated front sports seats to continue the sporty feeling on the inside.
VW T-Roc R
The T-Roc R is the performance-focused model in the T-Roc range. It uses the same 2.0-litre turbocharged engine as the speedy Volkswagen Golf R - so it has a substantial 300hp and is only available with four-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
While the T-Roc R is significantly faster than the other T-Roc models, it is a little less comfortable and a lot more expensive, so it’s only worth considering if you really crave the extra power it offers.
