Volkswagen shows compact SUV plans with new T-ROC concept

New small SUV from VW previewed with MQB-based concept, which shares its underpinnings with the upcoming Audi Q1

Volkswagen will reveal its plans for a new compact SUV with the T-Roc concept at next week’s Geneva motor show.

Revealed here in a series of official design sketches, the latest in a long line of high riding concepts from Volkswagen is expected to see production in 2017 as part of a five-strong future SUV line-up under development at the company’s Wolfsburg-based headquarters in Germany.

The new Volkswagen, which will share its underpinnings with the Audi Q1, will face competition from the lives of the Nissan Juke, Vauxhall Mokka and Renault Captur.

The exterior of the T-Roc features what Volkswagen describes as the latest evolution of its SUV styling DNA, and showcases a newly designed grille aimed at providing future Volkswagen SUV models with a more dynamic appearance than that of today’s offerings.
