THE open top version of Volkswagen's T-Roc SUV will be priced from Â£26,750 when it arrives in the UK in the next few months.
The cabriolet treatment for the T-Roc makes it the only convertible in the current VW range and the line up will include sportier R-Line models costing from £31,920.
Two engine choices will be available - a 1.0-litre developing 1115ps and a 1.5-litre with 150ps - and both are turbo petrols.
The 1.5-litre will also come with the option of a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission instead of the six-speed manual gearbox which is fitted to both powertrains.
Performance data is still to be released.
The T-Roc Cabriolet has a folding fabric roof which operates electronically and can be lowered in nine seconds while closing takes 11 seconds.
It is two-door only with a wheelbase 40mm longer than the regular compact SUV which VW says helps optimise space inside the four seat cabin, although boot space at 284 litres is significantly smaller.
Two trim levels will be available with the cheaper Design grade sitting on either 17 or 18-inch alloys with an eight-inch sat nav and infotainment display screen, full smartphone connectivity and an extensive array of safety features including pedestrian detection, lane departure and driver fatigue systems.
Two-zone climate control and adaptive cruise control are also standard features.
R-Line versions have larger 19-inch wheels, lowered sports suspension and extra body kit as well as LED headlights and fog lamps while inside they feature Volkswagen's Active Info digital instrument panel, upgraded trim and sports seats.
