The name T-Roc was chosen to convey the crossover's SUV-ness, suggesting it can tackle hardcore stuff like rock-crawling and such, and then a big T was slapped up front so the model ties in nicely with VW's current and future naming schemes - you know, Tiguan, Touareg, Terramont (Atlas in the US), and Touran (MPV thing in Europe...).
Volkswagen is heavily touting the T-Roc's appeal to younger buyers, with the option of two-tone paintwork, and a 400-watt Beats stereo system.

Volkswagen brand chief Herbert Diess was left in the unusual position of having to play down the potential success of his newest auto, at the launch of the VW T-Roc. The tail lamps of the T-Roc are reminiscent of those on the Tiguan, but the rear bumper is more aggressively designed.
The T-Roc enters a crowded segment, though VW hopes it will stand out by a combination of functionality, dynamic handling and technology. The sloping roofline of the crossover gives sporty touch while the brushed aluminum-look trim further beef up the design in an effective manner. The global version of the vehicle gets a long list of safety features such as automatic post-collision braking, active land keeping and a front monitoring system, pedestrian monitoring and emergency braking as standard on all models. Pricing will start just under $20,000.

The T-Roc will be launched in Europe in November and is expected in Australia in the first half of 2018. Fold the seats down and this increases to an impressive 1,290 litres - enough to cart garden waste to the tip.

Optional safety systems include adaptive cruise, a rear view camera, Rear Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Monitor, Park Assist, Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist. The turbocharged petrol range will feature three TSI engines - 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0-litre - with outputs starting at 115PS for the three-cylinder unit and rising to 150PS and 190PS for the larger four-cylinder engines.
