Volkswagen adds another much-needed utility vehicle to its line-up with the new T-Roc.

Volkswagen’s quest to be a bigger player in the U.S. market has fallen short due to a shortage of sport-ute and crossover offerings. The German maker’s been remedying that with a spate of new vehicles, such as the new Touareg, Atlas and now, the T-Roc.

VW has rapidly expanded its line-up in recent years, with a broad range of sedans, coupes, cabriolets and sports cars. What it’s been missing out on, however, has been the boom in demand for crossovers.  There’s a big gap between its current Tiguan and Touareg models – something it seems determined to correct. A new model, based on the CrossBlue concept, is expected to be produced in North America. But still other additions are in the works, and T-Roc offers some guidance as to what we can expect.
