Volkswagen is gearing up for the reveal of its new T-Roc crossover and the firm has released a teaser video showing off some its design details.
Based on the T-Roc Concept shown back in 2014, Volkswagen will debut its latest creation in production guise on 23 August 2017. The T-Roc will slot in below the Tiguan in Volkswagen’s lineup and it will look to shake-up the crossover segment with its edgy and progressive styling.
Volkswagen says the T-Roc will feature "crisp proportions, a progressive design, and a wealth of innovations." The model will also have sporty features and all-wheel drive to make it somewhat offroad capable.
This latest teaser video reveals some of the T-Roc’s design details including a wide grille with sharp-looking integrated LED headlights, a creased bonnet, plastic body cladding, metallic window surrounds, a stylised tailgate with a rear spoiler and smart, wrap-around LED taillight units. As for the interior, it looks smart and features colour-coded trim and a digital instrument cluster will give the interior a modern feel.
The T-Roc rides on Volkswagen’s MQB platform and will likely be offered with a choice of turbocharged 4-cylinder engines with both manual and dual-clutch transmissions. A 48 V mild hybrid version is also likely and Volkswagen may also introduce an R variant at a later stage that could employ the 228 kW 2.0-litre turbopetrol engine that does service in the Golf R.
We will keep you updated as soon as Volkswagen provides definitive details on 23 August 2017, so stay tuned!
