Will debut at the IAA 2017 in September.

Just days after the 2017 VW Polo’s official unveiling, the first look of the VW T-Roc is reportedly here. A report from AutoExpert says that the VW T-Roc’s illustration in the Car And Driver magazine’s recent released edition is the production VW T-Roc.

The VW T-Roc will ride on the MQB A1 platform and get optional all wheel drive.

The VW T-Roc in production guise is far different to the concept version displayed at the GIMS 2014. Volkswagen’s new baby SUV has the proportions of the Audi Q2 and adopts a more conventional design. While the concept was a 2-door convertible, the production version is a proper 5-door SUV.

The VW T-Roc will sit on the MQB A1 platform measuring 4.30 metres long. It will have a ground clearance 15 mm more than the VW Golf (142 mm) and a 412 litre boot. German reports say that Volkswagen will offer its smallest SUV with a low-travel suspension with adjustable dampers as well as an all-wheel drive system. Engines will include the familiar 115 PS 1.0-litre TSI petrol, 150 PS 1.5-litre TSI Evo petrol, 190 PS 2.0-litre TSI petrol, 115 PS 1.6-litre TDI diesel, 150 PS 2.0-litre TDI diesel and 190 PS 2.0-litre TDI diesel units. A GTI performance variant is also possible. Transmission choices should include 6-speed manual and 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic.
