at the 2014 geneva international motor show, volkswagen offered a glimpse at the company’s future sport-utility vehicles with the ‘T-ROC concept’. the two-door car combines the talents of an all-wheel drive SUV with the versatility of a convertible, and is built with a TDI plug-in hybrid drive system. the T-ROC’s roof middle section consists of two halves, which can be removed with just a few hand movements and stowed in the boot. based on the modular transverse matrix (MQB) platform, the T-ROC, is powered by a direct-injection turbo-diesel engine, and is equipped with three different operating modes: ‘street’, ‘offroad’ and ‘snow’. each mode modifies the parameters of its 4motion all-wheel drive system and 7-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox.

  • amazing!

  • Not another of these silly SUV things – such a pretentious and pointless class of motor vehicle. Sad to see VW jumping further onto the SUV band wagon.

  • pretty cool

    looks like Geneva is a kickass show this year
