Back in 2014, the Volkswagen T-Roc was shown off in concept form. Three years later, the convertible crossover has been given the production green light. The T-Roc, which is likely to have its name changed, will make its stateside debut sometime in 2019. The move is a no-brainer for VW, as sales of small SUVs are booming in the United States.
What makes the Volkswagen T-Roc so unique and notable is that it's a two-door convertible. The T-Roc wouldn't be so strange if it was a muscle car or a sports coupe. But convertible crossovers aren't really that popular. It remains to be seen if the Volkswagen T-Roc will lose its removable roof once it makes production. Should it not, then the German automaker has a chance to recapture the quirky magic of the New Beetle.
