Hello and good morning. It’s not too long before the Geneva Motor Show opens and various manufacturers are leaking pictures and sketches of what you can expect to see. The major automotive websites and magazines will undoubtedly wait till the show opens to show their scoops, but I’ve managed to trawl the internet and source two from Volkswagen. The Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet is the second SUV ( as far as I know) behind the Land Rover Evoque Cabriolet, to have a convertible option, but undoubtedly it will be priced much lower than the Land Rover. Here’s the release from IAB about the T-Roc.

Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet

Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet to be shown at the Geneva Motor Show


“Volkswagen had mooted the idea of a cabriolet SUV with the Volkswagen T-Roc concept back in 2014. While its production version arrived as a conventional hard-top SUV last year, Volkswagen has just confirmed that a cabriolet version will follow in 2020.

The  T-Roc Cabriolet will have a folding fabric top.

The VW T-Roc concept has roof halves which the owner can remove with just a few hand movements and stow conveniently in the boot. The production VW T-Roc Cabriolet won’t have removable targa tops. Volkswagen will go for a folding fabric top instead. Announcing the drop-top SUV, Dr. Herbert Diess, CEO, Volkswagen, said: “With the cabriolet based on the T-Roc, we will be adding a highly emotional model to the range.”

Volkswagen will manufacture the Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet at the Osnabruck plant in Germany, where the team has decades of experience with convertibles. The VW Golf Cabriolet, which was discontinued in 2016, was built at the same facility. Currently, the VW Tiguan and Porsche Cayman are assembled here.

Volkswagen plans to produce up to 20,000 units of the VW T-Roc Cabriolet annually and invest more than €80 million in the production of the VW T-Roc Cabriolet at the German plant. It plans to produce up to 20,000 units of the open-top SUV annually.”

If you’re hunting around for a great price on your next new car, you should call the auto expert, Bob Aldons from Car Business. My company, a car Broker, Car Buyers Agent or Car Buyers Advocate based on the north side of Brisbane, will return your inquiry within 24 hours and make the process of buying a new car easy and stress-free. Are you tired of salesperson tricks? I protect you from the pressure exerted by car dealer’s salespeople. There isn’t any obligation – just a pretty significant saving.

You’re where? Seriously, my services are available for you in any Australian state and territory: from Darwin to Hobart, Cairns to Perth.  Car Broker Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, and Darwin – I’m available when you need me to be.

Here’s an example

Matt wanted to purchase a Mazda 3 SP25 GT Manual Hatch. The retail value, drive away on that car is around $35,000. Car Business managed to purchase the same car for $28, 123.90 and with our fee Matt paid $25, 588, a saving of over $6000. And how do we know? Another customer, (looking for a new Holden HSV) just paid $35,000 for the same car – but he did it himself, without our assistance

If you’ve got a vehicle to trade, we have some clever ways to maximize the value – from used car dealers keen for your car to assist you to sell it privately. Finance and Insurance? We can handle that too, and we promise you will not be paying exorbitant dealer markups there either.

Trade In Value Example

2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited. Average dealer trade value – $16500. We achieved $22,000

2014 Volkswagen Tiguan 118TSI. Average dealer trade value – $14000. We achieved $16000

So, to get the best new car price, talk to others and then talk me. I’ve got the experience to handle the dealers and achieve the lowest new car prices. If you think you’re entitled to fleet pricing, I can often get better than that too. Whether you’re a small fleet or a large national fleet, Car Business will go to work and get that price down. Lower new car prices are my goal. So you’ll get the best prices from us rather than hoping you can help yourself.

If I can’t get you the best new car price, better than you can get yourself from a car dealer, we won’t charge you any fee. No Saving, No Fee. – that’s what you should expect from a car buying expert. 


Car Business WILL save you money on your next new car purchase – guaranteed
