Sara Nuru presented the new Volkswagen SUV concept T-Roc
at the Geneva Motor Show. Nuru is a German fashion model of Ethiopian descent. The striking features of the concept car
include its progressive design, the front section with the LED headlights and
two removable roof halves.
T-Roc is a Golf-format concept car positioned a step down
from the Tiguan. Following the CrossBlue (USA), CrossBlue Coupé (China) and
also Taigun (India) concept cars, Volkswagen is once again giving a look ahead
to possible future SUV models.
The T-Roc follows
a new design line and interior style, with the progressive design of the front
section being particularly striking. The two-door vehicle also combines the
talents of an all-wheel drive SUV - which doesn't capitulate even when faced
with rocky off-road tracks. The middle section of the roof consists of two
halves that with just a few flicks can be taken off and stowed in the boot.
Front and rear cameras, which are backed up in the dark by LED headlights,
extend the driver's field of vision.
The vehicle is powered by a 181bhp turbo-diesel direct
injection engine and is equipped with three different driving modes: 'Street',
'Off-road' and 'Snow'. The parameters of the 4Motion drive train, 7-speed DSG
(dual-clutch gearbox), ABS, Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control vary
depending on the mode selected. The 2.0 TDI engine's fuel consumption is a low
4.9 l/100 km, while maximum torque is 380 Nm.
