Volkswagen T-ROC SUV Will Arrive in The U.S. in 2019

The new Volkswagen T-ROC SUV that was hinted at in Geneva three years ago will be launched in Europe this summer and will be available in the U.S. in 2019.  The T-ROC is a sub-Tiguan Golf-sized crossover. Our Cardinale Volkswagen dealership looks forward to adding this Gold-based SUV to our VW inventory.

T-ROC First in VW Line of Golf-Based SUVs
The T-ROC is the first in an SUV line-up Volkswagen will be rolling out in Europe over the next 18 months. The T-ROC is intended for buyers who don’t necessarily want the increased footprint of an SUV, but do want the added practicality and a raised ride height.

The #TROC will be boxier than the Tiguan, with distinctive features such as squared-
off wheel arches, chunky C-pillars and a prominent shoulder line. The  T-ROC will be the same length as the Audi Q2 and Golf hatchback and will be based on the VW Group’s versatile MQB platform. The engine and gearbox options available in the T-ROC are expected to be the same as in the Golf.

Entry-level versions will be front-wheel drive only, but it’s likely VW will make its 4MOTION four-wheel-drive system available on higher trims. Many of the crossover’s powertrains will be shared with the Golf, so there is the possibility of GTI, GTE plug-in, GTD and R versions in the future. A fully electric version is not likely because 
VW is intending to launch all its electric vehicles under the I.D. brand.
