Volkswagen is planning to put the recently introduced T-ROC Concept into production as the model will slot between the Taigun and the next-gen Tiguan.
Officially unveiled just a week ago, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, in a world premiere, the new Volkswagen T-ROC Concept is being placed into the spotlights once more, this time with a report, stating that the model will be hitting the production line, soon. The VW CEO, Martin Winterkorn, has recently spoken to Automotive News about this subject.
“We will ask our customers [for feedback] and I am sure they will like this car. And if they do, we will build it”, said the company’s CEO when asked about a production T-ROC version.
If it will indeed get the green light for assembly, than the new T-ROC, which will probably get a different name too, will slot between the entry-level Taigun and the future generation of the Tiguan. The concept car was based on the MQB platform and it came with 184 HP (135 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque, squeezed from a 2.0 liter four-cylinder TDI engine. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration takes 6.9 seconds in this case and top speed stands at 210 km/h (130 mph).
