The Volkswagen T-Roc is a Tiny SUV for Urban Drivers

With each passing year vehicles are getting larger and larger in size. The compact trucks like the Toyota Tacoma are now nearly as massive as what was once a full-sized truck and full-sized trucks are the size of small houses. SUVs are heading in the same direction as well, which is fine for everyone that likes massive vehicles, but that’s not everyone. There are always going to be at least a few people that want something more compact, more efficient and less extravagant. For all those people, Volkswagen is releasing the T-Roc UTV. This compact SUV is meant for urban commuting, but we bet quite a few people in rural locations are going to make use of the vehicle as well.


Compact SUV Performance

The little SUV actually looks similar to a Golf turned SUV. IT’s highly compact and will sport space for up to five. If you don’t want a huge amount of rear cargo space, and instead you want something small and cute to drive around, the T-Roc could be just the thing for you. The SUV is going to launch with three or so different engine options, offering three different levels of performance for you to choose from.

Impressive Safety Features

Volkswagen is planning on releasing the T-Roc UTV with a good suite of safety features. It’s expected to come with auto braking systems, post-collision braking, and lane keep assist as well las the more standard features. You’ll also get adaptive cruise, which will make driving around a bit more enjoyable in this pint-sized SUV. Overall you’re going to get a whole lot of cool safety features packed into this little SUV from Volkswagen when it’s finally released.

Only a European Option for the Moment

The  T-Roc seems like a breath of fresh air in a market that’s inflated with bloated vehicles that are constantly growing in size, but it’s not an option for everyone. In fact, if you live outside of Europe, there’s a chance that you’ll never be able to get your hands on the little SUV. Volkswagen has plans to launch the T-Rock in Europe, and us folks over in America will have to wait around to see if the vehicle is expanded to the United States or not.

The T-Roc is a cool idea and it could probably do pretty well in America if it was released here. If it is released it will likely be larger than its European counterpart though, and that defeats the purpose of the vehicle entirely.
