VW releases another preview of the T-Roc

Article by Christian A., on August 11, 2017

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.

As for the style, the T-Roc will have a progressive design on the outside that will surprise many according to Volkswagen. Though we have already seen spy shots of the crossover, we aren’t sure what makes it extra special. And speaking of design, the interior will have a typical VAG approach, so that’s good news for those who like it and bad news for those who don’t.

The T-Roc might come in different engine options including: a 1.0 liter TSI, 1.5 TSI, and 2.0 TSI petrol engines and a 1.6 TDI and 2.0 TDI turbodiesels.

The T-Roc is currently Volkswagen’s smallest crossover when it comes out later in the year. But it will not be long before the company comes out with an even smaller version of the T-Roc, which they are planning to name “T-Cross Breeze”. The company has already revealed photos of the concept and it is actually looking cute, considering that it is a convertible too – from viewing the concept photos at least. We are not sure whether the production model will have a droptop too, but it would be nice if it will be.

The company first introduced the T-Roc to us back in 2014 as a concept car. And now it has progressed into the next step, that is the production stage. Volkswagen decided to put the concept into life to enter the compact crossover segment, while rivaling cars like the Toyota C-HR and the Nissan Qashqai. Some sources say that the T-Roc’s setup is somewhat based on the Audi Q2.
