Volkswagen T-ROC compact SUV concept first premiered over two years ago at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show; since then the arrival date of the T-ROC's production model has been subject to much conjecture. Now, an Autocar UK report claims that the new Volkswagen Golf-based SUV will debut as a "lightly veiled concept" at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Citing unnamed company officials, the publication further adds a definitive production version of the Volkswagen T-ROC is scheduled to make an appearance in the second half of 2017.
Based on the Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) platform, the two-door concept that debuted two years ago featured a new design line, LED headlights, and interior style, and came loaded with provisions such as front and rear cameras. The production model of the new Golf-based SUV will be a five-door car that will sport styling elements typical to the German carmaker. Inside, the Volkswagen T-ROC will borrow its dashboard and provisions such as an infotainment system with a 9.2-inch touchscreen, speech and gesture control, etc. from the new Volkswagen Golf.
The new Volkswagen Golf-based SUV, which will be positioned below the Tiguan SUV, will receive a myriad of petrol and engine options, including 113bhp 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol, 1.5-litre TSI Evo petrol, and 1.6-litre & 2.0-litre diesel engines. Likely to be offered with front- and four-wheel drive, the VW T-ROC's choice of gearboxes will include a six-speed manual and seven-speed DSG automatic. With that said, there are other Volkswagen T-ROC models in the pipeline too - T-ROC GTE (plug-in hybrid) and e-T-ROC (all-electric).
There is no word yet about the new Golf-based SUV's future in India, if at all. However, we will be sure to keep you posted about any developments in the matter.
