Audi isn’t the only brand in the Volkswagen Group with three-door SUVs on the mind, as the parent VW marque plans to demonstrate next week.

Teased in new sketches released today, Volkswagen’s new T-Roc concept will preview a new compact SUV - and a new look at what could be the German giant’s next styling language.

Moving away from the boxy look of 2012’s little Taigun concept, the T-Roc will debut as a smaller and more stylised version of last year’s ‘CrossBlue Coupe’ Concept.

Today’s teaser gallery hints at a compact crossover with large flared guards, an Audi A1-like roof frame and a bold character line drawn from the new Golf 7.

At the front, we see an evolution of the CrossBlue’s integrated grille and headlight design, flanked top and bottom by large fog lights and a powerful bonnet design.

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.

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

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.

Watch for the T-Roc to make its official debut in Geneva next week.
