Here it is, the Volkswagen T-Roc has finally been officially revealed.

Teased last week with a couple of design sketches, the T-Roc story goes back to 2014 when the concept was shown at the Geneva Motor Show.

Now though, Volkswagen tell us the model is ready to go into production and the first European deliveries will commence in November.

They say the T-Roc brings fresh impetus to the compact SUV class.

Sitting below the Tiguan in the Volkswagen range, the five-seat T-Roc will be available in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive and promises snappy, sporty dimensions outside, and great functionality inside.

Volkswagen say the T-Roc will have class-leading cargo space of 445 litres (back seat up) and 1,290 litres (back seat down).

Standard safety features in the new offering will include emergency braking and a lane keeping system.

Volkswagen T-Roc Design Elements:

  • Wide radiator grille unit with integrated dual headlights
  • Chrome element that runs from A-pillar to C-pillar
  • Designed to be reminiscent of a coupé
  • Off-road look enhanced by dark plastic wheel arches and side sills

The new offering will be available with a choice of three petrol engines and three diesels (capacities/outputs are yet to be confirmed), a seven-speed dual-clutch auto transmission will also be standard.

Dr Herbert Diess, Volkswagen Chairman, says the new compact SUV is the right vehicle at the right time for the brand.

“The T-Roc sets a new benchmark in the booming SUV segment.

“With its functionality, dynamic handling and technology, the T-Roc embodies all good Volkswagen qualities.

“It marks a milestone in our SUV offensive.”

No word yet on Australian availability, we will keep you updated though as further details come to hand.
