The T-Roc concept, which will be revealed at next week’s Geneva Motor Show is part of a five-SUV product plan that will bolster the VW line-up as soon as 2017.

Featuring a new design language that emphasizes width, the concept also boasts a striking “Blue-Splash” exterior hue, with a “three dimensional grille” between LED headlamps. Carbon trim and 19-inch alloys also seem to be part of the appeal. Sharing a platform with Audi’s Q1, the T-Roc concept measures in at 4 170 mm long, 1 831 mm wide and 1 501 mm tall.

Inside, there are four individual seats and a large infotainment display – with the upper half of the facia and some door trim also treated to a lick of “Blue-Splash” paint.

The T-Roc will be powered by the latest version of the Volkswagen 2,0-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel motor, which produces 135 kW and 380 N.m of torque from 1 750 r/min. Driver will be sent to all four wheels via a six-speed dual clutch transmission that offers three driving modes: street, off-road and snow.
