First previewed as the T-Roc concept at the 2014 Geneva motor Show, Volkswagen smallest SUV yet is slowly inching towards the production line. Now, Volkswagen has teased the T-Roc SUV ahead of its debut that is scheduled to take place on August 23, 2017.
Based on the flexible MQB platform that underpins the likes of the Golf and a few Audi models, the T-Roc will be a five door SUV and will come equipped with LED headlights on the outside and VW’s Active Info Display on the inside. The latter is a combination of a virtual instrument cluster and a large (probably 9 inch) touchscreen infotainment system on the dashboard.
Volkswagen has not revealed any details regarding the engine options and specifications of the T-Roc although the model is expected to be powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine as the primary unit. Also on offer could be a 1.0-litre petrol engine and a 1.6-litre diesel engine. Transmission options will include six speed manual transmission and a seven speed dual clutch automatic transmission. The company is likely to offer the model with a four wheel drive apart from the conventional front wheel drive.
Dimension wise, the Volkswagen T-Roc measures 4179 mm in length, about 200 mm less than that of its elder sibling, the Tiguan. Once launched, the model will rival the likes of the Audi Q2 and the Hyundai Kona. Do you think Volkswagen will bring the T-Roc to India? Let us know your views through the comments section below.
