2024 Volkswagen T-Roc Black Edition

Volkswagen has announced new stylish and well-equipped Black Edition models for four of its best-selling cars.

The Polo, the Taigo, the T-Roc and the Golf will all be available in Black Edition form, with the order books opening on July 4. As the name suggests, cars in Black Edition trim will get various black styling features, as well as a range of upgrades that builds on the existing sporty R-Line trim.

Adding dark elements to cars is popular, with manufacturers like BMW, Audi, SEAT and Porsche offering Shadow Edition and Black Edition models. Mercedes-Benz has also offered Black Edition models too, although these have tended to be exclusive, sportier cars rather than cars with black elements on them.

The various new Volkswagen Black Edition models go on sale on July 4, with prices either £500 more than the corresponding R-Line trim on the Polo and Taigo, and £1000 more on the T-Roc and the Golf. However, VW says the cost of the extra features would be several times more if they were added as options – up to £3,875 more if added to the T-Roc R-Line.
