The two-door T-ROC is designed around the format of the Golf, and occupies a space on the VW totem pole below the Tiguan.
Among its features are front and rear cameras equipped with LED lights for night-time use, multi-part 19-inch alloy wheels with size 245/45 tires, and a roof that can be quickly removed and stowed in two pieces.
It's powered by a 2.0 TDI turbo-diesel direct injection engine that puts out 184 PS (181 HP), 380 Nm (280 ft lb) of torque, and that consumes fuel at a rate of 4.9 L/100km (48 mpg). The vehicle also features VW's 4Motion all-wheel-drive train; a choice of Street, Off-road and Snow driving modes; a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox; ABS; Hill Start Assist; and Hill Descent Control.
The T-ROC tips the scales at 1,420 kg (3,131 lb). There's no word on when or if we'll be seeing it reborn as a production SUV.
