Volkswagen ready to reveal T-Roc crossover come August 23
The Wolfsburg-based automaker is making the final preparations for the launch of their B-segment crossover fighter, the 2018 T-Roc. Several days ago, Volkswagen released a video on how they designed the T-Roc, along with several close up shots of the upcoming crossover.
Now, Volkswagen has officially released new teaser renderings of the T-Roc which is set to be revealed on August 23, 2017. Based on the images, the T-Roc will have a prominent front fascia courtesy of sleek dual headlights, two-bar chrome grill, large air vents and a chin spoiler.
It's highly unlikely that it will roll on the overly-large concept wheels, but the distinct roofiline and angular D-pillar will most likely have made it into production. Around the back, the T-Roc will have a tailgate spoiler along with the eye-catching LED taillights and rear bumper.
Last April 2017, our spies managed to take photos of what looked to be an undisguised T-Roc. Side-by-side with the teaser renderings, it appears Volkswagen slightly toned down the looks of the crossover when it hit production. Still, the T-Roc presented itself as a sleek crossover and could measure 4300mm long.
The T-Roc is expected to be underpinned by Volkswagen's MQB platform and may be available with an array of turbocharged gasoline and diesel motors. Apparently, the entry level model could get a 1.0-liter inline-three that puts out 115 PS. Further up the range, a turbo 1.5-liter engine could also arrive in the T-Roc and may put out at least 150 PS.
It is set to make its global reveal in a few weeks time and will also be present at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
