Volkswagen has updated the T-Roc R the year with a light facelift. The updates are pretty minor, with some updates to the interior and some small changes on the outside. The new T-Roc R starts from £41,750 in the UK.

Around the outside, the changes made are small, but there is a new single bar grille with a new design for the mesh as well as thicker chrome trim on the top edges. VW has changed the headlights a bit, with a new LED light signature using the IQ.Light system.

Inside, the hard plastics are gone on the top of the dash, instead replaced with a more premium soft touch material. The screen is larger too, at 10.25-inch. Volkswagen has essentially dropped in the exact same infotainment system from the latest Golf and new steering wheel.

Volkswagen hasn’t made any changes to the engine here, instead still using the same 2.0-litre four cylinder unit from the previous generation. This means 296bhp, 400Nm of torque and 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds. Around the back, buyers can still spec the optional Akrapovič exhaust system.

The new, updated T-Roc R is on sale now.
