Volkswagen T-Roc Previewed In New Video

Volkswagen has provided its first official glimpse at its upcoming T-Roc crossover. The video outlines the design philosophy of the brand’s sub-compact crossover, which is expected to launch in Europe later this year and in the U.S. late next year.

Several media outlets have already snagged photos of the T-Roc with no camouflage, so there’s not a lot we don’t know about the look of this crossover. The official video (below) does confirm that the design was at least in part inspired by the Tiguan, while some influence is also coming from the next-generation Polo.

Speaking of the Polo, given the T-Roc is on the same architecture, it is expected the T-Roc will share its powertrains with the Polo. This means 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter diesel engines in Europe, but the oil-burner options are not likely to head stateside.

Reports have also suggested Volkswagen is working on a plug-in hybrid and battery-electric versions of the T-Roc to arrive sometime in the future.

T-Roc will be joining a rapidly growing market segment globally, competing with the Nissan Rogue Sport, Toyota C-HR, Honda H-RV and others.
