The vehicle is based on the MQB platform and has a length of 4234 mm and a wheelbase of 2063 mm, making it the size of the Creta. Currently, VW only has the Tiguan SUV on sale in the Indian market but if the MQB platform is available for smaller vehicles in India, we could even get the T-Roc, which could be an interesting compact SUV.

The vehicle gets the option of front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The company has tried to make it funky to look at as well. It will be offered with contrast paint shade, which means the roof and the A-pillar can be got in a different shade as that compared to the rest of the body of the vehicle. It will also feature LED headlamps, LED DRLs and LED tail lamps. In terms of interiors, the vehicle gets a virtual cockpit along with a plastic trim throughout, which can have different colours based on the exterior colour of the vehicle. There is a large touch screen system like there is on the newly launched Polo.

There will be a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DSG which will be on offer with the T-Roc.

The car also gets 4 driving modes, Street, Snow, Offroad and Offroad individual. All variants are equipped with the Driver Alert system and other options include Lane Assist, Front Assist, Pedestrian Monitoring and City Emergency braking.
