Spy Shots showing a completely naked Volkswagen T-Roc testing in China. The T-Roc will have its international debut in
August September. It will be manufactured in China by FAW-Volkswagen joint venture.
The T-Roc is based on the MQB (A0) platform and shares much of its underpinnings with the Volkswagen Golf. In China the T-Roc will be available with a 110hp 1.2 turbo, a 131hp 1.4 turbo, and a 150hp 1.5 turbo, and probably with the 220hp 2.0 turbo of the China-made Golf GTI.

The Chinese version, in white, appears to have a longer wheelbase the U.S. version, just follow the roof line of the white car from he B-pillar to the back. Chinese media have indeed reported that China will get a long-wheelbase version.
Trendy small lights and an even more trndy mud guard under the bumper. Note temporarily test-license plate on the window, issued in Jilin Province. Capital is Changchun city where FAW-Volkswagen is based.
The T-Roc is the first SUV for FAW-Volkswagen. The two others SUVs that are produced in China, the Tiguan L and the Teramont, are made by Shanghai-Volkswagen. Chinese dealers have long been begging for a compact SUV as the segment is booming like crazy.
