Volkswagen T-Roc was launched on March 18 at a price starting from Rs 19.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Earlier, it was showcased at the Auto Expo 2020, where it grabbed all the attention with its stylish and classy appearance. After the Indian automotive market noticed a downfall due to the current COVID-19 lockdown, Volkswagen struggled to deliver even a single unit of its range.
No doubt, the company has received a huge number of bookings for the all-new T-Roc. Although, the whole auto world has seen a negative impact due to the ongoing pandemic. The companies are slowly resuming production. The all-new T-Roc was recently spotted at a showroom in the dual-tone variant with white exterior and black roof. It seems that the company will soon deliver the model to the customers.
The company has brought the mid-size SUV as a complete CBU (Completely Built Unit) unit. The Government of India has announced some latest standards for the automakers which will allow only 2500 units of any abroad-made model to the nation every year. They don’t have to face the difficulty of homologating as well.
The T-Roc is developed on the company’s MQB platform, which was seen on the Skoda Karoq. Talking about the interior, the car gets tons of features like Vienna leather seats, leather gear shift knob, two-zone climate control, front-seat lumbar support, front and rear armrest, heat-insulating windshield, and bigger infotainment system with six speakers, Android Auto and CarPlay support.
Additionally, some standard safety features include six airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking camera, front and rear parking sensors, a tyre pressure monitoring system, Electronic Stability Control, Hill-start Assist, Park Distance Control and many more.
The VW mid-size SUV is powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged TSI petrol engine that is capable of making 150 PS of max power and 250 Nm of peak torque. The powertrain is combined with a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox as standard. However, it ditches the well-known 4Motion system for a front-wheel-drive set up for all the trims.
The company has also announced a Black edition variant for global selling. It gets most of the black elements like the grille, roof rails, exhaust pipes, alloy wheels. It is a feature-loaded variant compared to the standard SE trim. The company might think of commencing local production by bringing CKD units of the model in India, after an increase in demand.
