This will enter VW's plan to satisfy the current crossover crazy boom. At it’s shrunk to 4,179mm in length to match the CUV boom.
Built on the MQB platform and sharing its platform with the upcoming Audi Q1 – the diesel-powered T-Roc is will cater to most markets and is a good pointer to future variants.

With Taigun speculated to debut in late 2015/early 2016, the T-Roc is expected to arrive in 2017.

Wonder if this is the same Golf SUV VW was talking about. Had heard some rumors about it some time back. That was also sharing the platform with Audi Q1 IIRC and was supposed to be placed below Tiguan.

T ROC , a crossover built on the Golf platform( MQB ) will sit below Tiguan in the crossover line up from Volkswagen.
To be launched in 2017, the T Roc will measure 4.2m in length.

On its C/SUV onslaught, VW prepares the T-Cross to be a segment above the Polo SUV( T Cross) and below the Tiguan.

Based on the Golf VIII, it differs very little from it.
It is approximately 4.35 meters long T-Roc will have exterior panels, a partially autonomous interiors and an off-road suspension with larger wheels as comapred to the Golf.
All-wheel drive , dual-clutch gearbox and variable dampers will be available, such goodies but cost an extra.

Quote:
Since the golf VIII again an e-version is in the works, and the T-Roc could benefit from the hitherto much improved electric concept, which is causing a stir with a range of 420 kilometers. For incinerators, the hierarchy is also rearranged.
As entry-level engine of one liter three-cylinder is used with 115 hp, it ranks a 1.5-liter four-cylinder (150 hp) to replace the 1.4-liter TSI units. After diesel, the gasoline train get train particulate filter. The 2.0-liter turbo of the as yet unconfirmed T-Roc GTI could cover the entire range from 230 to over 400 horsepower.

T Roc is VW's C/SUV based on the Golf placed a segment above T Cross (Polo SUV) and Tiguan. Coming in 2018.

Technically, the approximately 4.35 meters long T-Roc differs only in details from the new golf VIII.
Quote:
The T-Roc-Wardrobe is a Volkswagen unusually extroverted and lifestylig, plus there is a partially independent interior and a rough road chassis with larger wheels. Since the body shell comes from the high-volume, a removable Targa roof would only be produced at great expense - and thus remains unlikely. Four-wheel drive, dual-clutch gearbox and variable dampers, there will be those goodies but cost an extra. Priced ranked the T-Roc closer to the Golf Variant as the Tiguan, ie at around 20,000 euros. The surcharge for the planned coupe version is expected to be just under 2000 euros, replete prices ranging up to 45,000 euros.
Gasoline, diesel and electric motor

In Europe and then probably also in the US, the Wolfsburg push also the natural gas. Finally, CNG has a comparable performance and reasonable costs a CO2 savings of 25 percent

Volkswagen is set to expand its Golf line-up next year with a new crossover-style SUV model influenced by the T-Roc concept.

To be slotted in a segement below Tiguan the CUV will show its production version later in 2017 though the refined concept will appear at 2017 Geneva motor show.

The sale of the T Roc will be after the Polo SUV, so it will be most like on sale from 2019 .

Quote:
Unlike the original targa roof-touting T-Roc concept revealed in 2014, the production version of Volkswagen’s latest SUV is planned to receive a fixed roof and five-door hatchback layout similar to that of its more conventional Golf siblings. While adopting typical Volkswagen styling elements, the new SUV will sport a uniquely styled steel body, according to factory sources

2017 and beyond will see a lots of compact/SUV launches from VW.

Volkswagen T-ROC will go on sale in Europe late 2017 and will also be sold in US early 2018.

A left field approach to the sport utility vehicle genre, the T-ROC will come with a removable roof from the get-go. It should be noted that only the middle section of the roof is removable. The roof can be neatly stowed in a special compartment integrated into the underside of the trunk.

Front-wheel-drive by nature, the 2018 Volkswagen T-ROC will also be offered with 4Motion all-wheel-drive. Similarly to the quattro system in the Audi Q2, the T-ROC’s Haldex-coupling system employs an electro-hydraulic clutch actuator to actively distribute torque between the front and rear axles.

The entry-level powertrain combo will come in the form of a tried-and-tested 1.4-liter TSI turbo-four matched with a six-speed manual transmission. A seven-speed DSG dual-clutch box is also in the offing. On the turbo diesel-powered front, VeeDub’s familiar 2.0-liter TDI

This looks like Targa of SUV's. I don't like SUVs much but this is one hell of a beauty. Why can't Volkswagen sell it under Audi or Porsche umbrella in India. This should sell in reasonable no., after all they are selling beetle as well.
