Slammed VW T-Roc

Slammed vehicles makes me cringe a bit, especially when the car was designed to be a high sitting SUV in the first place. An Austrian company called LowRider took it upon themselves to modify a VW T-Roc including slamming it. A new air suspension system was installed along with a new set of wheels to produce what you see below.

Never liked that sort of styling, instead I was always more into a Motorsports inspired look, much like what was done to the CH-R below:

I don't see the point of slamming a crossover, as it's ride height is all that really separates it from being a hatchback. Lowered that much, it really doesn't look all that different from what you'd get with the Audi Allroad wagon. I guess its a good thing nonetheless that people are investing money into VW's new model, and we may see more aftermarket mods coming out for it as a result.

I agree completely.

What someone should be doing instead is lowering it enough to where handling is improved incrementally and there's a reasonable reduction of wheel gap.

The GLA below is a perfect example of what i'm talking about:

Aside from suspension, you'll probably need to add a strut bar and other stabilizing components because lower ground clearance alone will not stabilize a car. There's also the fear of damaging anything if you manage to hit a big bump or pothole.

Don't think we'll see regular owners going the route of slamming the T-Roc to the same extent as that Dotz model. I do agree that it generally looks a little cleaner when there is less of a gap in the wheel wells, but thats already pretty minor on the stock set up.
