In 2022, the T-Roc Cabrio is due to have a facelift before that happens, but VW is also bringing a special model. The “Edition Blue” is limited to 800 pieces and is only sold at selected dealers. The individual serial number of each vehicle can be found on the entry list. The special model can be recognized at first glance by the matt paintwork in “Ravanna blue”. The basis is the sporty R-Line equipment with sporty aprons, sport suspension and progressive steering. In addition, in the “Edition Blue” the mirror caps, the trim strips on the grill and flank, the tailpipe trims and door handles as well as the rear spoiler are blackened and there are also inlays in the interior in high-gloss black.
