Wolfsburg / Geneva, 2014. Volkswagen has two of the most SUVs (Sport Utility of European origin in its range the Tiguan and the Touareg. Now Germany’s carmaker will significantly this range with new in a wide variety of classes.

in 2013, Volkswagen showed how a SUV for the USA or China might look the CrossBlue and CrossBlue Coupé vehicles; development of the production is ongoing. In the mid-size segment, demonstrated in 2012 with the Coupé concept car – another with a concrete connection to cars – just how extremely an all-wheel drive SUV can be with a TDI hybrid drive system.

A model in the lower price the Taigun, is in the development phase; the version of this SUV concept was in New Delhi, India in February Following now in a world premiere at the International Motor Show (4 to 16 is another vehicle that a glimpse at future Volkswagen the T-ROC. An SUV concept vehicle one from the Tiguan in the Golf for more than just driving.

Removable roof The concept car being presented in follows a new design and interior In addition, the two-door car combines the of an all-wheel drive SUV – which not shy away from rocky trails (“ROCK”) – with the summery air of a convertible. That is the middle section of the roof of two halves, which can be removed just a few hand movements and in the boot.

Incidentally, the “T” in T-ROC is a reference to the of current and future Volkswagen such as the Taigun, Tiguan and

Street / Offroad / Snow. The which is powered by a 135 kW / 184 PS direct-injection engine, is equipped with different operating modes: “Offroad” and “Snow”. Each modifies the parameters of the 4MOTION drive system, engine, DSG (dual-clutch gearbox), ABS and hill and hill descent assist

The modes are activated by an intuitively turn wheel on the DSG gear grip; the mode that is is shown in a pop-up window in the digital instrument set.

and weight. The T-ROC is 4,179 mm 1,831 mm wide and 1,501 mm It is based on the modular transverse (MQB) platform, and thanks to its design, the SUV weighs just kg.

Visually distinctive and in part for the SUV’s proportions are its relatively overhangs (front: 811 mm, rear: 772 mm) and widths of 1,578 mm (front) and mm (rear), which are large to the body width. The wheelbase is mm. Front and rear, the SUV is equipped multi-part 19-inch alloy 245/45 tyres maintain to the ground both on the road and

Forward-looking design. The team at Design, led by Walter de Silva and Bischoff, has progressively advanced the SUV DNA in the T-ROC, but at the same time preserved Volkswagen history. is immediately apparent at the front Distinctive here is the 3D radiator designed with large, openings – a new and dominant design high and wide in the middle, out narrower on the sides.

In an upwards it is surrounded by a high-gloss black strip with a knife-sharp on the sides, it is bordered by the dual LED and at the bottom it is framed by a cross-member in look. This cross-member progressively narrows towards the is more than just a element; at its outside ends it the LED daytime running lights and LED (when the indicators are activated, the daytime running lights orange indicator lights).

If only the daytime running are active, then one LED light is automatically lit at the centre of each of the headlights. The dipped beam is generated by the out-board LED headlights; the main beam is activated, adds the adjacent LED headlights in-board of them.

Also prominent is the lower section of the end: it is designed almost as if one to place a mirror under the grille with its contours in the lower air inlet. The side of the facing the street is bordered by a underbody protection element.

spotlights. A dominant element of the design between the radiator and the lower air inlet is a cross piece in body colour Metallic”). Towards the sides in area are the large, round modules, which are visually of those of the legendary Volkswagen Ghia Type 34.

However, five decades ago, the behind the glass covers can do more than just light. Each of the two round has a strip of three LEDs at its with these LEDs the fog light. Above this strip is a power LED which the function of a swivelling spotlight. the strip of three LEDs, has integrated a movable camera.

Design of the side profile… The of the car give a clean and powerful At the top, the silhouette is defined by the of the high-gloss black roof forms a dark line in the silhouette and together with the windscreen, large roof and rear windscreen gives the a coupé-like contour.

Beneath the roof line, an strip that runs out the termination of the C pillars makes the car lower to the ground than it is at a height of 1,501 mm. When from the sides, the C pillars look like a roll-over bar is set far to the rear. Integrated between imaginary bar and the front windscreen are the removable roof halves.

…is clean and precise. The line transitions into the bonnet and the wings at the height of the A giving the bonnet an especially appearance which is further by the significant rear-ward offset of the windscreen. In the area beneath the line, there is what is as the character line; this edge, upon whose the door handles are also runs between muscular arches, front and rear.

The radius of the rear wheel transitions into a horizontal that finally ends in the LED lights – so each line has its And that is typical of Volkswagen Also eye-catching in side are the spokes of the 19-inch alloy with interior surfaces in body colour.

The chrome sills have a sophisticated while the wrap-around off-road of dark plastic in “Cool that protect the body are

Design of the rear body. The elements of the boot lid and the roof are designed in high-gloss black. them is the consistently horizontal of the rear elements. The LED rear have a three-dimensional shape; on the they are part of the rear and towards the middle they are of the boot lid.

Like the running light bars at the end, the rear lights have visually hovering elements. The elements of the rear adjoining the boot lid are also made of aluminum.

Rear as well. At the front end, the contours of the radiator grille are in the lower air inlet. In the rear it is the design of the rear lid lines appears to be reflected on the surface for the licence plate.

Large elements are also integrated in black trim panels to the and right of the surface. As in front, LEDs are integrated in these as well, and these form the lights. The power LED above assumes the role of the rear fog here.

There is also a camera the three LEDs, which is to display visual images of the behind the T-ROC. The images the rear-view camera are also onto the tablet on the centre Beneath the round lighting and modules and to the sides are the exhaust (aluminium, matt with a frame) which are integrated in the and the underbody protection with aluminium elements.

Interior – and design of the T-ROC

Designed for The T-ROC is a four-seater with a reconceptualised interior. In their all elements are designed to match the character of the T-ROC. That is, the are rugged, with non-slip and are designed to be used on the move – as the touchscreen in the centre console was conceptualised as a tablet and the HD camera in the area of the rear-view mirror.

features can also be used the T-ROC.

Blue and anthracite Stylistically, the low-profile dashboard a horizontal layout. A central here is the dashpad painted in Metallic”.

Volkswagen implements interiors in production as well, as in the up! and Beetle lifestyle models. painted in body colour in the are the door accent strips, the panel of the centre console and the accents of the leather-trimmed steering that are arranged in the shape of The other interior surfaces – the exception of the seats – are designed in an named “Adamantium Dark”.

The leather-upholstered seats, meanwhile, a colour transition from to anthracite.

Digital instruments. The status indicators and climate functions in the T-ROC are all entirely in form. Accordingly, a 12.3 colour display is used as a instrument.

Depending on the driving – “Street”, “Offroad” or “Snow” – it a range of colours and information is adapted to the given situation. In mode, for instance, the speed displayed by the speedometer ends at 80 instead of 260 km/h. These are displayed in a fascinating way with transitions and clear animations; the is visualised by an entirely unique of digital aesthetics.

User-configurable infotainment screen. The that is used for the infotainment is a tablet. It is firmly locked the dashboard with the upper of the display extending out from the The multitouch display (reacts to gestures) is user-configurable.

Just the instrument cluster in front of the the range of colours and information on the tablet also change to the driving mode. In Offroad the tablet also becomes a for the cameras. The HD camera mounted in the mirror bracket is also from the tablet and can be used to videos of either the outside or the of the vehicle.

Digital climate The climate control system of the also has digital controls. A and high-resolution AMOLED display Matrix Organic LED) is here.

The climate functions are set via touchscreen. The AMOLED display is into the centre console. here is the “body-related” operating where the user can set an individual temperature” – i.e. not just the of the air stream – for different body

The climate control system regulates the temperature and fan settings as as the air distribution for this setting. a love of detail, meanwhile, is the console panel; its design of straps was inspired by the motocross

Strong and efficient. The T-ROC is by a torque-strong and fuel-efficient turbodiesel the 2.0 TDI with 135 kW / 184 PS, the engine that is used in the sporty Golf In the concept vehicle, the high-tech delivers a top speed of 210 km/h, to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and a ample to the two driven axles (380 Nm 1,750 rpm).

This with a combined fuel figure of 4.9 l/100 km (equates to 129 CO2). A 7-speed dual-clutch (DSG) handles the transmission of power to the 4MOTION all-wheel system.

4MOTION all-wheel In normal operation, the 4MOTION drive system, which is with the latest Haldex transfers nearly all of the engine’s to the front axle. That is fuel-efficient.

Nonetheless, even in situation the 4MOTION system to be a permanent all-wheel drive because the rear axle receives more power as as slip is detected at the front or the sensors of the T-ROC detect an in transverse acceleration. 4MOTION pre-control strategies depending on the driving state. This variably engages the rear in fractions of a second via the Haldex whenever necessary.

“Street” / “Offroad” / “Snow”. The is equipped with three driving modes: “Street”, and “Snow”. Parameters of the running engine-gearbox unit and hill and hill descent assist are modified depending on the mode.

The mode is activated via an intuitive wheel control on the DSG gear grip; the mode that is is indicated in a pop-up window in the instrument cluster.

“Street”. The mode is known as “Street”. The drive only directs to the rear axle if traction or acceleration makes it necessary.

In “Offroad” mode, off-road can be optimised at the push of a button. mode presets the power between the front and rear to 50:50 and activates an entire of assistance systems. The systems here include hill assist, hill start more sensitively metered pedal response, preselection of with DSG and ABSplus.

The latter a different pulsing frequency on road surfaces, which towards reducing braking – e.g. on gravel hills. The at the front and rear can also be in Offroad mode.

“Snow”. the vehicle is used to go skiing, the mode offers an advantage in of active safety. As in the “Offroad” in this case the all-wheel system switches to a 50:50 distribution by default. The ABSplus is also activated.

At the same the parameter maps for the engine and are modified for the very low traction occurs while driving on
