VW T-Roc Crossover heading to Geneva

28 February 2014

Volkswagen has announced that it will be taking a new crossover concept, called the T-Roc, to the upcoming Geneva Auto Show.

Now, before you get too excited about this sporty little crossover, it won’t be heading into production anytime soon. Instead, VW states that it “offers a glimpse at future Volkswagen SUVs”.

Measuring 4179 mm long, 1831 mm wide and 1501 mm high, the T-Roc isn’t much bigger than a Polo, though it obviously rides quite a bit higher.

According to Volkswagen, the vehicle weighs 1420kg and is based in the same scalable MQB platform that’s used for the VW Golf and Audi TT. Under the bonnet is a two-litre turbocharged oilburner that develops 133 kW of power and 380 Nm of torque.

That’s apparently enough to get it from 0 – 100 km/h in 6,9 seconds, and keep it going until it reaches 210 km/h.

With its three-door configuration, the T-Roc looks very sporty and fun, so its a shame that it isn’t a production model. But who knows? If it’s a massive hit at Geneva it might end up getting prepped for production after all…
