Underpinning the new T-ROC SUV is the VW Group’s MQB platform. This modern architecture also underpins the Tiguan SUV. The T-ROC could share many design cues with the upcoming Audi Q2 SUV. However, it will get a flat roof, typical of SUVs. In contrast, the Q2 has a coupe-ish roofline. Other than this, the nose of the T-ROC will be characterized by bits like a hexagonal grille with chrome garnish, chunky headlamps, a wide air-dam with honeycomb mesh and sleek fog lamps.
When seen in side profile, the bold wheel arches clearly stand out. The T-ROC SUV, while maintaining a typical Teutonic look, gets some bold creases and attractive alloy wheels. Highlights of the rear-end will include a large windscreen, large roof spoiler and LED taillights. The T-ROC concept features 3D LED lights.
