Volkswagen T-Roc Concept Design, Price

It was during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show that the Volkswagen
T-Roc Concept was introduced. The car is an SUV that its
manufacturer, Volkswagen, describes as taking the “Golf

Following its two successes in the SUV realm, Touareg and
Tiguan, the Volkswagen T-Roc Concept is a downsizing. And
modernising attempt on its SUV line. The Volkswagen T-Roc
Concept has first declared a concept car. That was not to go
into production but following the lines of which Volkswagen
would produce three new SUVs. However, these plans were
altered. And even the company’s decision to refrain from
selling it particularly in the US was later reversed.

Volkswagen T-Roc Concept – Interior and Exterior Design

Although the German manufacturer tries to draw a distinction
between the Volkswagen T-Roc Concept and the iconic Volkswagen
Golf, and it has every right to do so, since the new concept
car is in many ways a new introduction to the brand’s SUV line,
yet the Golf could be used as a reference when we examine the
design of the Volkswagen T-Roc Concept.

That is not merely due to the similarities in structure, but
also because the company has been highly secretive about the
detailed features of the more recent models of the Volkswagen
T-Roc concept, although some of the interior features were
suggested to have been kept unchanged from the 2014 model that
was the concept’s debut.


Although the car has somewhat larger exterior dimensions than
one would find on a Golf, the T-Roc’s interior is slightly
smaller than the latter, albeit with a structure similar to
that of a Golf or an Audi Q2. It would basically suit
well a family of perhaps four members. And could even fit a
couple of adults in the backseat. Although it would not exactly
be the pinnacle of comfort for anyone bigger than a young

Volkswagen also seems to aim at a more colourful feel than that
which we are used to seeing in its models, with body-color
patterns running across the dashboard. However, the company
sticking to the features of its 2014 prototype is not to be
taking for granted. Some major changes were made to the car’s

Whereas the 2014 prototype was a two-door, the 2017 model, as
well as the 2019 prototype have been made to have four doors.
Although we mentioned it having dimensions that exceed those of
the Golf, the T-Roc is 7.4 inches shorter in terms of length.

Volkswagen T-Roc Concept – Engine Specs and Fuel Economy

The car is anticipated to be launched with three- and
four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines. It is
also expected in the US. But with 1.8-liter and 2.0-liter
displacement, as opposed to the 1.0 to 2.0-liters range. That
is to be sold worldwide. There will also be an option of
4MOTION, which is Volkswagen’s trademark permanent four-wheel
drive system.

Like the Golf and the Audi 3, the Volkswagen T-Roc Concept has
embedded Volkswagen’s platform, the MQB (roughly translated
into “Modular Transversal Toolkit”) It is a modular
construction shared across a number of VW’s automobile

The T-Roc Concept was introduced in certain markets, such as
Africa, with a 102.2-inch wheelbase and a length of 166.6
inches. It although might not necessarily be the exact same
dimensions to be used in Western markets, still yet set the
range to expect. As for the horsepower, we do not have a
certain figure yet. Except that we know that in Europe it will
not exceed the 200 mark.

Volkswagen T-Roc Concept – Price and Release Date

Finally, it has been announced that the VW T-Roc Concept is to
be revealed at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. That is to be
held in September. Although the US market is to have an SUV
launched that is originated from the T-Roc Concept. The car
will not exactly be the T-Roc, given that the car’s assembly
location in Portugal gives it prospects of being too costly.

The US-specific adaptation of the vehicle, which will probably
carry a different name, is to be launched in 2019, nonetheless.
And the company is expected to set the price below the $25,000
