VW's T-Roc Crossover Concept Isn't As Big As You Think
Feb 28, 2014 11:51
VW's recently proposed the T-Roc, which targets the sub-compact category. The automaker states that it "offers a glimpse at future Volkswagen SUVs".
Due for a world premiere at next week's Geneva Motor Show, it is only slightly bigger than the Polo at 4,179mm long, 1,831mm wide and 1,501mm tall.
One of the highlights of the four passenger interior is the fully-digital 12.3-inch instrument panel. There's also a tablet-like, user-configurable infotainment screen.
The T-Roc weighs in at 1,420kg (3,130 pounds) and is powered by the same 181hp (184PS) and 380Nm 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel found on the Golf GTD paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission and 4MOTION all-wheel drive system with Haldex coupling.
It can run up to a top speed of 210 km/h (130mph), accelerate to 100 km/h (62mph) in 6.9 seconds and return a combined fuel consumption of 4.9 l/100 km (58.6mpg UK or 48.0 mpg US) with 129 g/km of CO2.
Drivers know that car accidents can be really expensive in terms of paying for repairs especially when other drivers involved in such do not have any insurance of their own. When other drivers have not had insurance it meant the all insured driver would end up losing out financially, either by having to pay higher levels of excess or via higher premium costs. However there are now legal ways, in which costs can be recovered from the uninsured drivers involved in traffic accidents. Recovering costs is something that careful and insured drivers should do after uninsured drivers have caused or contributed to accidents. The issue can be serious for drivers that are faced with repair costs when they did not cause the damage in the first place. Read more
