Whenever automakers bring a new concept to an auto show, they typically like to market it as a vehicle “unlike anything on the road,” or something along those lines. In Volkswagen’s case, that statement holds true with regard to the T-ROC Concept, which VW debuted at the International Geneva Motor Show. This three-door – and potentially five-door – crossover features a removable roof, an efficient diesel powertrain and three different driving modes, just to name a few of its distinct characteristics.
Volkswagen also showcased a reworked Tiguan and the CrossBlue SUV at the Geneva Motor Show. Back in January, VW confirmed that a seven-seat, plug-in-hybrid SUV based on the CrossBlue Concept would make its U.S. debut in 2016.
But Volkswagen’s highlight at the Geneva Motor Show was, without a doubt, the T-ROC. Here are some need-to-know details about the upcoming crossover:
- The T-ROC Concept vehicle will be able to generate 184 horsepower and with the 2.0-liter TDI – the same engine found in the VW Golf GTD – and will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds.
- An estimated 48 mpg (converted from 4.9 L/100 km) with the turbodiesel engine.
- It will have three driving modes: “Street,” “Offroad” and “Snow.” It will also come with Volkswagen’s 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system for further assistance during difficult driving conditions.
- Inside, the T-ROC crossover includes features like a rearview camera, touchscreen infotainment system and a digital climate control system.
