Volkswagen T-Roc R design sketches teased ahead of Geneva debut

Volkswagen T-Roc R design sketches teased ahead of Geneva debut

-    The close-to-production concept of the T-Roc R will debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show next month.

-    The R will add sporty design with anl aggressive front and rear design on the crossover. 

-    Expected to be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre gasoline engine putting out 300bhp.

Volkswagen will showcase to the world a near-production version of the T-Roc R at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. With the R suffix, the crossover in the Volkswagen stable will get additional performance along with aggressive styling, the latter of which is teased in new design sketches. 

The beefier wheel arches and implausibly large alloy wheels of the sketch point to a wider track on the performance spec T-Roc. The overall design gets aggressive bumpers both fore and aft, claims the carmaker. There’s no rear sketch available at the moment, but we expect to see the R-specific quad-exhaust at the back similar to the ones on the Golf R. 

Under the hood will be the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol from the hot hatch. No power figures have been divulged at the moment, but we expect around 300bhp and 400Nm from the T-Roc R. The transmission might either be a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DSG sending power to the 4Motion all-wheel-drive system. Volkswagen developed the T-Roc R at the Green Hell with the expertise of WRX World Champion Petter Solberg and Volkswagen works driver Benjamin Leuchter. Unfortunately, the Volkswagen T-Roc R will not come to our shores.
