Volkswagen T-Roc Spied With Minimal Camouflage



First revealed in concept form at a private show before the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, we’re now finally seeing the Volkswagen T-Roc with minimal camouflage as it was being loaded onto a truck.

Sitting on the flexible MQB platform, which could also underpin the second generation Audi Q3, the T-Roc compact crossover will slot under the Tiguan and compete against the likes of the Honda HR-V, Toyota C-HR, Fiat 500X, and Ford EcoSport. Even under camouflage, there’s no mistaking it for anything but a VW with a side profile similar to that of the new seven seater Atlas.

Its design features an aggressively slanted rear hatch, high roofline, wide hips and an indent spanning the length of the side doors. The wheels seems to have been borrowed from its larger Tiguan sibling and both the front and rear seems to have pronounced fake chrome accents. After taking a close look at the lighting elements, autoblog thinks the lights may just be pieces of fake print stuck to the front.

As for what’s sitting under the hood, those in Europe should be getting a range of options. The engine specs are still under wraps, so everything from a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine with 115 ponies to a2.0-liter powerplant is fair game.

We’ll just have to wait until the T-Roc’s Europe debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September for more information.

Starting to look too much like a Ford, but that might be a good thing because VW admitted a while ago they don't understand America. This might be a manifestation of them understanding.

I just don't care for this at all...

Don't think it looks appealing either.

Really toned down from the concept. I was hoping it would be a bit more aggressive and retain more of the front end design.

Just adding to this if anyone really cares about it, but there's supposed to be an R badged version of it coming out that supposedly has 300bhp and a 0-60 of somewhere in the 4.0 second area.

Thanks for sharing that because with all the weight it has going on, a trim like that should give consumers some confidence.
Still i'm skeptical. Will have to see more on suspension and the rest of the drivetrain/powertrain. Used Q3 over brand new T-Roc is preferred.

The power is one thing but I mean.. it could be 400bhp and I still wouldn't be interested. It just doesn't look exciting or appealing at all. The concept variant of it looked great, but the production model is just not enticing.
