Newly released sketches provide major clues to the look of the Volkswagen T-Roc, a new compact SUV due to be unveiled on 23rd August.

Expected on sale in the Autumn, the T-Roc is expected to provide Volkswagen with a more direct rival to the segment-creating and leading Nissan Qashqai than is the current VW Tiguan.

Currently, there is little detailed information available about the T-Roc, Volkswagen merely stating that it will ‘combine the effortless superiority of an SUV with the agility of a sporty, compact model.’

Hybrid and electric

The new crossover model is expected to be closely related to the Polo and Golf hatch ranges. Most sales are likely to be of two-wheel-drive versions but with all-wheel-drive also being available in the line-up. Plug-in hybrid and fully electric versions are also thought to be in plans for the T-Roc range.

   

While based on the larger Tiguan, the styling of the T-Roc will be a departure from previous Volkswagen design, the aim being to give the car an off-road image with chunky dimensions particularly around the wheel arches – though perhaps not quite as bold as the sketches suggest. The car will be recognisable from its signature wide radiator grille which runs into the headlamps, while the indicators and daytime running lights are separately mounted in the bumper.

Check back to The Executivecondominium for the full story of the T-Roc following its unveiling on 23rd August.
