It turns out the ‘T’ is for ‘targa’: say hello to Volkswagen’s new T-Roc concept, revealed today the Geneva Motor Show.

Previewing a new styling direction for Volkswagen, the T-Roc also brings a little show-car flair, focusing on a three-door configuration and an open-top roof design.

Volkswagen has yet to confirm production plans for the T-Roc, but it’s no stretch of the imagination to guess at how the company’s next new SUV will look.

In the T-Roc, we see an evolution of the earlier CrossBlue Coupe’s integrated grille and headlight design, flanked top and bottom by large fog lights and a powerful bonnet design.

At the rear, there’s a pair of G-shaped LED lights set into a tall hatch. Below, there’s a second pair of fog lights and two stylised exhaust tips.

In the cabin, Volkswagen promises room for four, along with a large 12.3 inch display and hardy non-slip surfaces throughout.

A stylised dash design dominated the interior, with hard blue surfaces that could be inspired by Volkswagen’s light Up! hatch range.

The T-Roc's main party trick, of course, is its targa-style roof, which is divided into two panel halves that are manually removed for stowing in the rear cargo area.

In size, the T-Roc slots in between the light Polo and the small Golf, measuring 4165mm long, 1831mm wide and 1498mm tall, riding on a 2590mm wheelbase.

By comparison, the Golf and Polo register 4255 and 3952mm long, 1799 and 1682mm wide, 1452 and 1454mm tall, with 2637 and 2470mm wheelbases.

Built on Volkswagen's versatile MQB platform, the T-Roc measures in at a relatively hefty 1420kg - or around 200kg heavier than the new Golf 7 in its lightest form.

Motivation for the T-Roc concept is provided by the Golf GTD’s turbocharged and direct-injected 2.0 litre diesel, producing 135kW.

The engine is mated to Volkswagen’s familiar seven-speed DSG auto, sending power to a Haldex all-wheel-drive system. Volkswagen claims a 0-100km/h time of 6.9 seconds.

The T-Roc also boasts driving modes, including default Street mode and optional Off-road mode - which apart from adjusting torque distribution and engine/transmission settings, also activates front and rear-mounted cameras.
