The Volkswagen T Roc concept on the way
It was under a year ago that we first heard of Volkswagen's plans to launch a new concept machine into the world given the name of the T Roc. At the time the firm announced that the car would be three years away for production meaning that the time is drawing closer with an expected launch time now set for two years. The car was designed as a new SUV/crossover model that was first shown in Geneva one year ago. When the car does reach production it will have the likes of the Renault Captur in its sights as far as a rival is concerned. It is no secret that crossover/SUV models are becoming increasingly more popular as the months pass by but as we get a year closer to production we are even more excited to see just what it is that the T Roc can do.
What we know about the Volkswagen T Roc so far
So in regards to what we know about this concept design so far, we know that the car will run on the very same MQB platform that we can now find in the Volkswagen Golf and the car will sit below the Tiguan in the companies line up. When the car first went on display underneath the bright lights of the Geneva Motor Show, we saw it in a metallic Blue finish carrying LED light technology and a wide grille located high up on the front of the car. Regarding the engine to come along with the T Roc the brand have announced that an engine carrying two litres and coming in the form of a diesel will come fitted to the vehicle. 181 brake horse power is the confirmed output for the T Roc too. A seven speed, DSG transmission has also been confirmed for the concept model as standard. The concept idea carried a roof that was removable and although we expect a lot of these features to carry over with the production ready version, the roof is not expected to be one of these features.
How long will it be before we see the production T Roc?
The brand said last year that the car was three years away which would point towards a production ready reveal in 2016 followed by a launch expected in 2017. Therefore we would think that around next years Geneva Motor Show would prove to be a great time for the reveal of the new model if not sooner. The T Roc however could be the car that takes the SUV/Crossover segment to the next level and we cannot wait to see how well it does when contending with cars such as the Juke from Nissan.
