The T-Roc joins the Taigun and the Tiguan Allspace in VW’s SUV offensive
T-Roc positioned as a stylish mid-sized SUV
Expected to be brought in as an import
Will be powered by 1.5-litre TSI engine
Full suite of safety features expected
After the global unveil of the Taigun, Volkswagen took the wraps off the T-Roc that will form a part of its SUV offensive that includes four new launches in the next two years. The T-Roc is expected to be brought in as an import and could be launched in the second half of 2020.
Underpinned by the group’s MQB platform, the T-Roc sits below the Tiguan in VW’s line-up. It is marketed internationally as a stylish SUV and is decidedly high on the style quotient with a coupe-like form, large wheel arches, high bonnet, a contrast roof and a wide stance. The LED headlamps integrated with the grille along with the DRLs positioned lower down add to the appeal as well.
The T-Roc is expected to be available with the solitary engine option of a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine mated to a 7-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission producing 148bhp and 340Nm of torque.
