Design sketch reveals a close-to-production concept of the super cool crossover.
Volkswagen has released the second episode of its teaser campaign T-Roc R after showing the potent crossover under camo while testing at the Nürburgring at the beginning of the month. The adjacent design sketch paints a more accurate picture of what to expect from the actual crossover, but bear in mind VW refers to the Geneva-bound showcar as a concept car that’s close to the production model.

The T-Roc R boasts on aggressive body with large front air intakes and what seems to be beefier wheel arches hinting at a possible widening of the tracks. T-Roc crossover sits closer to the road thanks to a stiffer suspension setup, and although a view of the rear is not available, it should have the R-specific quad exhaust tips as seen on the Golf R.
It is expected to lend its turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine. This VW will offer a six-speed manual gearbox. It’s not known if the guys from Wolfsburg have decided to sell the T-Roc R with a seven-speed DSG.
