It’s nearly ready… Watch Volkswagen T-Roc teaser video here
Set to be revealed on 23 August, the Golf-based Volkswagen T-roc is an all-new SUV that’ll sit beneath the Tiguan in the company’s SUV line-up.
VW has now revealed a teaser video that gives us a better idea of what we can expect it to look like.
No official pictures have been officially released yet, but VW has produced a video that gives an insight into how it has been designed. There are a few glimpses in the clip that you can watch below, but nothing too substantial has been revealed.
What we can see is that all Volkswagen’s latest styling cues are there, and the sharp lines bear a resemblance to a close relative – the highly praised Audi Q2. Being based on the Golf will probably mean it’s a little larger than the Audi though.
The car is actually based on a concept from the 2014 Geneva Motor Show (below), although as you can see from the teaser clip, the styling has been significantly toned down, with the funky looking circular driving lights replaced with ones similar to the Tiguan.
The video doesn’t really give us a good look at the interior, but we did notice body-coloured trim pieces feature, perhaps a sign the T-Roc will get more customisable personalisation options.
We can expect it to look very similar to the latest Golf’s (pictured below), but of course its SUV nature will mean more passenger legroom and boot space.
Because it’s based on the Golf’s MQB platform, it’ll use some of the same power plants too. A 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol is on the cards, as are 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre diesels with a range of power outputs.
It’ll be packed full of the latest tech which will include the “gesture-controlled” infotainment system that’s available in the latest Volkswagens.
With the T-Roc set to be revealed on 23 August, that’s all we know about the new crossover for now, although sitting between the Golf and Tiguan means we can speculate that it will be cost from around £19,000. We’ll bring you lease rates as soon as they’re available.
