VOLKSWAGEN is readying its line-up for the long-awaited re-opening of dealerships with the launch of a new Black Edition version of the T-Roc compact SUV.
In spite of the name, the T-Roc Black Edition comes in a range of vibrant paint finishes including Turmeric Yellow, Ravenna Blue, Energetic Orange and Flash Red as well as Deep Black Pearl.
But it does get a black-finish to its grille trim, door mirror caps, roof rails and exhaust pipes, as well as adding rear privacy glass, a special geometric decal on the C-pillar, 18-inch black alloy wheels and LED headlights.
On the inside, the black theme continues, with ‘Piano Black' dash pads, black roof lining, a leather-wrapped gearshift knob and a multifunction sports steering wheel with contrasting grey stitching, white ambient lighting and footwell illumination.
When specified individually the additional equipment would cost more than Â£2,000 but, with a starting price of Â£23,750 for the one-litre, 115 PS TSI model, it's only Â£400 more than the SE model on which it's based.
The newcomer joins the Touareg Black Edition in VW's line-up and builds on the T-Roc SE's standard equipment package which includes adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, electrically heated and foldable door mirrors with integrated puddle lights, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.
As with the rest of the T-Roc range, the Black Edition can be personalised from a comprehensive list of extras with leather upholstery, a ‘beats' audio sound pack and sports suspension among the available options.
There's a choice of four power units - 1.0 and 1.5-litre TSI petrol and 1.6 and two-litre TDI diesels - all driving the front wheels.
