Volkswagen's new "baby Tiguan" snapped for the first time


The successor to the Volkswagen Tiguan as the company's smallest SUV has been spied undisguised for the very first time.

Aside from the concealed VW badges and masking on the lights, the images posted by shows the smaller T-Roc being covered by a tarpaulin before being loaded into the back of a truck. What remains unknown though is whether it will adopt the same name as the concept shown at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, or bear a new identity.

While significantly toned down from the concept visually, the T-Roc will reportedly use Volkswagen's flexible MQB architecture, and feature a range of three-and four cylinder TSI engines as well as a clutch of four-cylinder TDI units. Transmission options will likely consist of a six-speed manual and seven-speed DSG, with 4Motion all-wheel drive to be offered on some models.

Expected to be built at Volkswagen's Palmela plant in Portugal, which currently produces the Sharan and its Seat Alhambra twin as well as the Scirocco, the T-Roc will make its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, with sales in Europe likely to commence towards the end of this year.
