Volkswagen has finally unveiled the long-awaited VW T-ROC SUV in its production avatar in Italy. It is now the smallest Volkswagen SUV, placed below the Tiguan. This SUV will be joined by a smaller sibling - T-Cross Breeze, which was unveiled last year in concept form. The T-ROC SUV will take on the likes of Jeep Compass, Hyundai Tucson and the Toyota C-HR.
The VW T-ROC SUV is built on the versatile VW Group's MQB platform that also underpins the VW Tiguan and the seventh generation Golf hatchback. It measures 4,234mm in length, 1,819mm in width and 1,573mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,603mm. This model is bigger than the Audi Q2.
Talking about design highlights, the SUV gets simple VW grille, thin LED headlamps, ring-shaped LED daytime running lamps that also works as turn indicator, and silver underbody guards. Other features include dual-tone paint scheme, red brake calipers, roof-mounted spoiler, LED tail lights, chrome exhaust trim, etc.
The cabin of the Volkswagen T-ROC is shared with the Golf hatchback, however, the SUV gets new colour trims and features to offer refreshing look. It is equipped with a 11.7-inch Active info display that we have already seen on the new Audi TT. The SUV also has an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with gesture control.
