According to some information from the Volkswagen we have by now, it seems that 2019 Volkswagen T-Roc will be the European version of the new Tiguan, due to differences in price and size, not acceptable in the US. With this model, we can confirm that Volkswagen actually has a plan to expand the class of small SUVs, obviously interesting in past years, especially in the Europe. That is why this car model should be highly interesting for the market always full of the small compact trucks. However, we could not see much about this car, since the first test driving has shown the truck covered with the colored protection, but we were able to conclude how this truck will look like.
As we said, 2019 Volkswagen T-Roc should be one of the small SUV trucks, slightly different from the other small trucks on the market. Looking at the spy photos, we could see mesh rhomboidal front end, with the thin lights just below the rounded hood line. Below them is trapezoidal mesh air intake, on the wide bumper, which, even covered, seems as the protected on the bottom. The rear end should be rounded as on other compact crossovers, with the flat rear glass and spoiler at the end of the rounded roof. Unfortunately, spy photos under the thick cover could not provide to us more information and details, so we cannot say if there will be any curved line on the side of the car or anything similar to that.
The same thing is with the inside of the 2019 Volkswagen T-Roc. We could not be able to see anything trough the glass during the test driving in Portugal, so we cannot say anything about the design and surely nothing about the equipment and technology inside of the car.
There will be offered two possible engines for 2019 Volkswagen T-Roc. First one is 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and the second one is slightly stronger 2.0-liter. The possible transmission should be six-speed dual-clutch automatic, even though car and driver site expects that version only as optional in higher trim versions. However, the all-wheel driving system is expected as only one, so there should not be many surprises about that.
We only can confirm that 2019 Volkswagen T-Roc really looks great for the class, and those test driving we could be able to see, in Portugal and South Africa have proved that it will be a main competitor to the similar trucks from the Chevrolet, for example. The basic price should be around $25,000.
