With the launch of the new T-ROC concept at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Volkswagen is giving us a preview of what the next generation of their crossover vehicles will be like. The car has a cool and sporty body, it is based on the MQB platform, and it is fantastically efficient.

Volkswagen T-ROC is powered by a 135 kW / 184 PS turbo-diesel direct injection engine, supported in its operations by a 4Motion drive train, 7-speed DSG (dual-clutch gearbox), ABS, Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control. These features alter their behaviors depending on pre-programmed ‘Street’, ‘Off-road’ and ‘Snow’ driving modes to suit your every need.

Despite weighing 1,420 kg and riding high on 19-inch wheels with 245/45 tires, Volkswagen T-ROC manages to be incredibly frugal, averaging 4.9 liter per 100 km.

For the time being, there is no production plans for the Golf-based Volkswagen T-ROC. But the German automaker says the car can inspire a range of new SUVs. It certainly looks production-ready. Apart from a few fancy features inside and out, the mechanicals of the T-ROC are all pretty normal. It could make a good Tiguan replacement.
