2018 VW T-Roc will be exclusive to Europe and China, not in the United States

Volkswagen recently revealed their first ever compact crossover, namely the T-Roc. This model goes right below the Tiguan in the company’s lineup, as its smallest subcompact ever. This model is like a hybrid of an SUV and a compact hatchback, and what we know is that it will be sold in Europe before the year ends. The CUV will make its first public debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

When the T-Roc becomes available in Germany and the rest of Europe, customers will be able to choose from a number of engine options - for both gasoline and diesel. This includes a 1.0 liter, a 1.5 liter, and 2.0 liter TSI units, with 114 horsepower (85 kilowatts), 148 horsepower (110 kW), and 188 horsepower (140 kW), respectively. The first two can be had with six speed manual giving power to the front wheels, while a seven-speed dual clutch can be an option for the 1.5 liter unit. The 2.0, on the other hand can be paired with the dual-clutch box. For those who prefer driving a diesel, the T-Roc will be available in a 1.6 liter or a 2.0 liter TDI motor with the same output as the gasoline engines. For the T-Roc, entry-level models will be available in front-wheel drive, while larger engines can get an all-wheel drive option.

Initially, the company considered a plan to bring the model to the United States after the European release, but it seems like the company has changed their mind. Because now, reports say that the model will only be limited to Europe and China, and that piece of tidbit apparently came from VW insiders. This means that the United States will only be limited to the Tiguan if they want a compact model. But even with this statement, US fans should not lose hope at all, as there is still chance for a US-spec T-Roc, said Automobile Magazine. It is just a matter of when we will see one. Who knows, maybe the T-Roc’s future successor will head to North America.

Check out this VW T-Roc GTI on but don't get your hopes up

Volkswagen recently just announced their first compact crossover for Europe, that is the stylish T-Roc. However, they also made it clear that only the Polo and Golf hatchbacks will be getting the GTI treatment. This means that we should not expect the Passat or Touareg in a Grand Touring Injection variant. With that being said, you cannot stop artists from rendering what they’ve imagined, and this time, it is a T-Roc GTI. That was quick considering that the CUV only made its world premiere a few days ago.

Without a doubt, the sporty version of the T-Roc will get the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine from the Golf GTI that can produce as much as 245 horsepower. The GTI Performance upgrade is currently available in Europe. But just because VW is not planning a GTI treatment for the T-Roc doesn’t mean it will not have any other variants. And sources say that there may be a chance for a T-Roc R that is a little more powerful with 310 horsepower engine just like the Golf R.

This was because Herbert Diess, VW chairman, said a few months ago that he would like to consider a more powerful all-wheel-drive T-Roc R. To further support this statement, sources that are close to Wolfsburg have told Autocar that the company’s head asked his engineers to build a development car. If Diess sends the go signal, then expect the T-Roc R to go on production, and it should be ready after the Tiguan R’s release. The Tiguan R is another hot AWD that a lot of us are expecting to see, with a five-cylinder 2.5 liter engine just like the Audi RS3 supposedly.

VW T-Roc is finally entering the compact crossover segment in Europe

Finally, a compact crossover from Volkswagen. That is the T-Roc, a CUV that finds itself just below the Tiguan in the company’s lineup. Speaking of compact vehicles and size, the T-Roc is 166.7 inches (4,234 millimeters) in length, with a 102.5-inch (2,603 millimeters) wheelbase.

That makes it 9.9 inches (252 mm) shorter than a Tiguan. As for the cargo space, it can be expanded from a minimum of 15.72 cubic feet (445 liters) to a maximum space of 45.56 cubic feet (1,290 liters) when the seats are folded.

The T-Roc will be released in Europe first in 2018, before it heads to North America for the next model year. Furthermore, the US market will probably not get as many engine options. The T-Roc will be making its first appearance during the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show next month.

VW releases another preview of the T-Roc

Volkswagen has been around for many decades, and for a company so popular, they seem to not have a lot of crossovers and SUVs in their product lineup - but not anymore. This year, VW announced their plans to come out with a T-Roc, which will be placed below the Tiguan in terms of size, height, as well as pricing. The T-Roc is said to be released in Europe before the year ends, but it will take a little longer for the United States market.

As part of its marketing campaign, the company came out with two sketch designs of the T-Roc, following its reveal on August 23 before it gets transported to the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The T-Roc is not really a secret that Volkswagen has been hiding. In fact, we already know that it will be part of the MQB platform, which also means that it won’t be that difficult to guess its technical specifications. We actually do think that the T-Roc will stand out from the other models considering the fact that it is the first model that will be using a mild hybrid system.

Earlier this month, Volkswagen’s annual meeting took place at its hometown in Wolfsburg, Germany. This year’s meeting was focused on the company’s business plan they call “Transform 2025+”. This plan is solely based on hybrid and electric vehicles.

Aside from providing updates on its hybrid and electric vehicles, Volkswagen also addressed what their agenda is when it comes to new models arriving in the next couple of months. And it seems like they have a handful of models arriving sooner than we thought. For instance, they just reconfirmed that the company will begin production of the all-new Polo next month, meaning that in the next coming weeks, photos of the supermini will probably be circulating around the web.

That’s just one of the few models VW will put in production. The T-Roc compact crossover, which is based on the Golf, will also hit the assembly line for the EU market as early as August. So in the next few months, we will finally see the brand new T-Roc with its covers off. The company also said that the compact crossover will be sold in the United States by 2019. The factory to build the T-Roc will be based in Palmela, Portugal.

We must admit that we were not too impressed by the sketches, but the new VW T-ROC Concept looks pretty good especially when it gives a preview of a possible SUV range. According to Volkswagen, the T-ROC is a Golf-format concept car positioned a step down from the Tiguan.

Following the CrossBlue (USA), CrossBlue Coupé (China) and also Taigun (India) concept cars, Volkswagen is once again giving a look ahead to possible future SUV models.

The T-ROC Concept’s front end is dominated by the LED headlights and by the LED fog lights, which resemble those found on the Nissan Juke. The T-ROC follows a new design line and interior style. What’s really interesting is that the middle section of the roof consists of two halves that with just a few flicks can be taken off and stowed in the boot.

For the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Volkswagen prepared the all-new T-Roc Concept, a new SUV described as “one down from the Tiguan in the Golf format, for more than just urban driving”. Got that?

Moreover, the T-Roc Concept combines the talents of an AWD SUV with the light summery air of a convertible. That’s because the new concept comes with a middle section of the roof that consists of two halves, which can be removed with just a few hand movements and stowed in the boot. According to the official press release, the T-Roc Concept is 4,179 mm long, 1,831 mm wide and 1,501 mm tall. As expected, the concept car uses the new modular transverse matrix (MQB) platform introduced on the Golf 7.

Thanks to the new platform, the SUV weighs just 1,420 kg. The wheelbase is 2,595 mm. Regarding the design, the team led by Walter de Silva and Klaus Bischoff created a new design line and we expect to see it on the upcoming models from Volkswagen. As you can see, the concept car features a distinctive 3D radiator grille designed with large honeycomb-shaped openings, high-gloss black trim strip with a knife-sharp look, while on the sides it is bordered by the dual LED headlights. We have to admit that the front end looks pretty interesting although some of you might say that Volkswagen was inspired a little bit by the Nissan Juke.
