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.
