This Volkswagen’s baby SUV is speculated to premiere at 2017 IAA in September.
Only a few days after the Volkswagen Polo’s world debut, the first image of the T-Roc has been revealed in the Car And Driver, an Australian magazine.
The production Volkswagen T-Roc is far different from the 2-door convertible concept which was shown off at Geneva International Motor Show in 2014. Instead, the T-Roc is a proper 5-door SUV which resembles the AudiQ2 and adopts a more conventional design.

Based on the MQB A1 platform, the Volkswagen T-Roc has a length of 4,300 mm, a ground clearance of 157 mm (15 mm higher than the Volkswagen Golf) and a 412-liter luggage trunk. Some sources say that Volkswagen will give its smallest SUV a low-travel suspension with adjustable dampers and an all-wheel drive system.

The baby SUV will be offered in six engine options: 113 hp 1.0-liter TSI petrol, 148 1.5-liter TSI Evo petrol, 188 hp 2.0-liter TSI petrol, 113 hp 1.6-liter TDI diesel, 148 hp 2.0-liter TDI diesel and 188 hp 2.0-liter TDI diesel engines. Power is sent to four wheels via either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic.
The Volkswagen T-Roc will be on the production line at the Palmela facility in Portugal this August after the successful testing in China and Europe. After that, it will officially be introduced at 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA 2017) on September 12.
