48 MPG From An SUV?!
What do you think of Volkswagen's latest concept? It's called the "T-ROC"...
From what we know so far, the mid-size SUV will be powered by a 135 kW (180 hp) 2.0L plug-in hybrid diesel engine with 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of twist on tap (starting at 1,750 rpm), and would be backed by a seven-speed DSG transmission. According to VW, the all-wheel drive SUV could be capable of sipping just 4.9 liters of fuel per 100 km driven. That's 1.29 gallons consumed per 62 miles to you and me (48 mpg!). Additionally, the T-ROC can be driven in three different operating modes: street, offroad, and snow.
