- Production of the Volkswagen T-Roc convertible commences in 2020.
- This VW convertible SUV will roll out of its production facility at Osnabruck, Germany.
While every automaker is gearing up to get into the SUV bandwagon, some can be seen pushing the envelope to the extreme. Case in point here is the upcoming Volkswagen T-Roc convertible that’s slated to hit the market by 2020.
The digital rendering of the topless T-Roc that you’re eyeing comes as a breath of fresh air for the SUV-loving fraternity. This is even more pronounced since we’ve all played audience to two-door convertible hatches and sedans over the years.
So the question is, will it work? From the looks of it, why not? A drop-top brightly finished SUV like the one in the picture has a lot of appeal. And should we also point out to you that the existence of other convertible SUVs, such as Nissan’s Murano CrossCabriolet and the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, is proof of the auto industry waking up to such a demand.
Well, it may be too early to speculate, but when Volkswagen invests so much money to get this vehicle into production, it kind-of grabs your attention. Nevertheless, the carmaker will need to take into account the inherent concerns related to packaging this design. Which is, the folding mechanism usually eats up into the boot space. And to make up for this, auto makers usually clip some rear legroom.
Let’s see how VW manages to package this bit on the convertible T-Roc before making it available in the year 2020. Stay tuned for the details.
