VW teases new crossover ‘top model' ahead of Geneva debut

By RELAXNEWS | 15 February 2019

WOLFSBURG: VW plans to unveil an R-branded T-Roc at the Geneva Motor Show next month and the brand even provided a vibrant cartoony sketch of the model on Thursday to hold us over.

Back in 2017, Volkswagen introduced the world to the T-Roc and now, three years later, the company wants to satisfy those who not only want the same urban practicality of a compact crossover, but also a stylish, sporty ride.

Considering that the T-Roc R was developed by Volkswagen R — with the support of car racing champions Petter Solberg and Benjamin Leuchter — and tested at the Nürburgring racetrack, this model is sure to be much sportier than your average T-Roc, after all, that R stands for "racing."

The sketches show some design resemblance to the Golf R, the street-legal but track-inspired hatchback. It looks aggressive and aerodynamic, but not angry.

The world premiere of the T-Roc R will take place March 7 at the Geneva Motor Show, and the car will be on display until March 17. We can expect to see the pricing and release date revealed then.
