Volkswagen T-Roc: German manufacturer reveals its latest SUV
Volkswagen has revealed its latest SUV, the T-Roc.
Designed for the compact end of the market, it will enter the German manufacturer's line-up below the Tiguan. It is based on the MQB platform used to produce the Golf.
The crossover will be offered with six engines at launch - three petrol and three diesels.
No figures have been announced, but the power units will be offered in front-wheel drive with a manual gearbox, a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, or an all-wheel drive coupled to the automatic.
As standard, the car will come with air con, a colour infotainment system, LED tail lights and daytime running lights.
It will be available in a base specification or with two higher trim levels - sport and style. According to VW, the T-Roc is "in a league of its own" for driver assistance systems.
Boot space is 445 litres, expanded to 1,290.
UK prices have yet to be announced, but in Europe T-Roc orders start at around £18,000 and will begin in November.
