Volkswagen’s search for the perfect crossover vehicle continues with yet another new model, to be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. Called the T-ROC, this one demonstrates a new approach to compact SUVs, and is packed with up to the minute technologies.

By the looks of things, Volkswagen T-ROC appears to be a direct hit at the Range Rover Evoque. It’s a compact three-door SUV, powered by small, fuel –efficient engines; it looks trendy; and it has the same advanced technologies you find in the Range Rove like multi-camera guiding system and latest infotainment.

Designed predominantly for the European market, the T-ROC is powered by a 135 kW / 184 PS direct-injection turbodiesel engine, with equipped with three different operating modes: “Street”, “Offroad” and “Snow”. Each mode modifies the parameters of the 4MOTION all-wheel drive system, engine, 7-speed DSG (dual-clutch gearbox), ABS and hill start and hill descent assist systems. So for the first time ever altering the driving mode will actually make a difference.

The concept car is built on VW’s renowned and extremely flexible MQB platform and weighs just over 1,400 kg. The car has a wheelbase of 2,595 mm, which is good considering its 4.1 meter length. Visually, Volkswagen seems to be giving in to the new trend that believes in stupid-looking car. With 3D radiator grille designed with large, honeycomb-shaped openings and weird headlights, Volkswagen T-ROC brings Nissan Juke to mind.

Among the cool new features of the car there’s the external camera system at the front and rear like you get on a Range Rover, complete with LED spotlights; roof halves can be removed and stowed in the boot; digital instruments; and portable tablet.
