Why No Atlantic Blue Color in T-Roc 2021 Models in UK

Post by SwankyTroc » Sat Jun 19, 2021 7:48 pm

Hi,

During the purchase process, I was told by the dealer that Atlantic Blue isn't available anymore on any of the trims. This was confirmed by VW as well. However, no reason was given for it.

I know there's Ravenna Blue but Atlantic Blue is on the darker side and closer to Black I guess for people who dont want a Black color but darker shade of Blue.

Out of curiousity, does anyone know if there's a specific reason for it? Such a shame they dont do one of the colors which is a big hit with other cars like Merc and Audi, in the last few years 😔🤔

I'd say it's because they didn't sell enough in that colour to justify the costs 🤔🤷‍♂️

I very seldom see one in that colour 🧐

Possible but dont understand why the same color sells like hot pancakes in Merc and Audi but not in T-Roc ??

Different buyer demographics on the different models. You could ask why the media screen on the T-Roc doesn't look like the bluetacked an ipad on the dash as that's what merc do... (You could say I hate that look :-) )

Wow. I'm surprised. I was told by the dealer and VW that Atlantic Blue isn't available anymore 🤔

Which trim (United, Design, Active, SEL, etc) option did you go for, and did you go for standard spec or add some additional spec (reversing camera, sunroof, etc) to the trim?

Apparently I got the last one. It’s an R-Line 1.5l 7 Speed Automatic.
I asked for extra’s… keyless entry, reverse camera, etc….
