The T-Roc is expected to be unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show in September and is set to become the smallest SUV in VW’s global line-up until the T-Cross Breeze concept-based SUV sees the light of the day.

Volkswagen has officially teased, for the first time, its upcoming T-Roc compact SUV in a video. The T-Roc is based on the concept with a similar name, the T-Roc concept, which made its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. An alleged production-spec model of the T-Roc was also spied earlier this month wearing barely any camouflage.

The pre-production prototype teased by VW gives us a clear glimpse of how its grille, headlamps and tail lamps will look like. More importantly, you get a hint of its silhouette, which looks more flamboyant as opposed to the Tiguan, courtesy its relatively raked rear windscreen. Its footprints look identical to the 2014 T-Roc concept. Mechanically, the T-Roc is expected to share its mechanicals with the upcoming Polo (naturally aspirated/TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines) and the Golf (not available in India) as well.

Although not confirmed to be launched in the Indian market yet, we cannot rule out the T-Roc’s possible introduction here. VW commenced the local production of the Tiguan, with which the T-Roc shares its platform (MQB), in India recently. So it would be relatively easy for VW to locally produce the T-Roc in the country.

Further, there are a lot of MQB based cars – such as the Skoda Superb, Octavia, and more – from VW Group already produced locally in the country, along with a few upcoming ones in the pipeline as well (2018 VW Polo, Skoda Kodiaq, VW Passat, Audi Q2, and others). If launched, it will fall in the ever-growing mid-size SUV/crossover segment with vehicles such as the Mahindra XUV500 and the upcoming Renault Captur (the Tata Hexa also falls in the same price band).
