Last year, Volkswagen delighted us with its excellent SUV T-Roc. Namely, this will be the first generation of SUV that comes with a removable hardtop. Therefore, if you buy the 2016 Volkswagen T-Rock, you can easily turn it into an SUV cabriolet. Volkswagen’s new model will have futuristic and absolutely incredible design, but its design is not the only thing that needs to be admired, there is much more. It seems that Volkswagen has great plans for the near future since it wants to expand its SUV lineup from two models to six. Currently, its portfolio of crossovers consists of Touareg and Tiguan, but the mighty T-Rock will soon join the division.

Namely, the brand-new Volkswagen T-Rock 2016 will be based on the carmaker’s flexible MQB platform which will probably serve as basis for other carmaker’s crossovers and SUVs except the Touareg which is based on the MLB platform. The same platform will form basis for Audi’s upcoming Q1. Even though the original version of the T-Rock was a three-door model, the production version might actually be a five-door model. As for the dimensions, there won’t be significant departures, so the T-Rock will be 164.5 inches long and 72.1 inches wide. On the front end, you will notice headlights with rather aggressive and yet stylish shape. They are supported by LED technology. Underneath the LED headlights, you will see a pair of daytime running lights.
The body of the vehicle seems to be pretty massive, and its mass probably plays the most important role when driving on tough terrains. The most interesting feature of the new T-Rock is definitely its mobile roof. This is the very first time that an SUV has this feature and can be turned into a convertible model. You just need to push a button and the entire roof of the vehicle is packed. A great number of customers will be attracted by this feature for sure. Simply put, the 2016 Volkswagen T-Tock with all its features and powerful design looks prepared for any kind of terrain.
