The Volkswagen T-Roc has been confirmed, a new model for the B-segment-SUV

Volkswagen T-Roc Concept

More than three years have elapsed since the first time we were to talk about Volkswagen T-Roc. It is a SUV urban, of smaller size than the Volkswagen Tiguan, that the signature of the “people’s car” presented in the form of prototype at the beginning of 2014. Volkswagen has in mind, with this model, compete with other SUV urban as the Renault Capture, Nissan Juke and company. Up to the time nothing was confirmed, until the moment…

it Is odd that, after three years, Volkswagen has not decided to market a model for this segment. It seems as if the German firm had expected at the launch of the Audi Q2, a cousin of this SUV, to decide whether to finally sell it or not. In any case, Herbert Diess, maximum responsible of the company, has asserted that a model derived from the Volkswagen T-Roc will start its marketing medium-term.

And inform our fellow Automotive News. This means states that Diess has confirmed in Wolfsburg that a model below the Tiguan will start, for the year 2019, marketing in north America, and South america. We don’t have news about whether this same model will reach the european market though, seeing the success of this type of product in Europe, it would be very strange that the new SUV city does not come to be marketed here.

Nor do we know if the model in question will retain the name of Volkswagen T-Roc prototype or if, on the contrary, you will receive a new name. Also, it is more than likely that, in the case of Europe, the specifications, engines and finishes is not identical to the american. main rivals of this SUV-B would be the already mentioned Renault Capture and Nissan Juke, in addition to other cars are also settled in the market such as the Peugeot 2008 or others that are about to come, as the Seat Arona. We will be attentive to all the information on this SUV city of Volkswagen.
