Volkswagen show more T-Roc details in latest teaser


Volkswagen has continued its teaser campaign for the T-Roc with the release of yet another video in the run-up to the model's launch on August 23rd.

Once again highlighting the newcomer's design, the 23 second clip sees the T-Roc traversing a savannah like landscape, with the teaser also including brief shots of the interior, the rear end resembling the Tiguan, and a partial front end view.

Looking very much set to retain the T-Roc name as per the video, the replacement for the Tiguan as Volkswagen's smallest SUV will ride on the same MQB A0 platform as the Polo and Seat Ibiza, and likely use the same range of engines made up of a 1.0 TSI, a 1.5 TSI and a 1.6 TDI in two states of tune.

A performance R model is also expected to join the range at a later stage, possibly using the same 147 kW 2.0 TSI mill as the Polo GTI, or the Golf R's 228 kW unit. Transmissions will consist of a six-speed manual with a seven-speed DSG and all-wheel drive optional on some models. 

The teaser also confirms that the T-Roc will be offered with Volkswagen's 12.3-inch Active Info Display instrument cluster, as well as the eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system that debuted on the Polo.

Production will commence at Volkswagen's Palmela Plant in Portugal later this month, although its remains unknown whether the T-Roc will become available in South Africa.
