After unveiling the Taigun, Volkswagen has now launched another compact SUV T-ROC in India. Like before, the T-ROC will be brought to India via the CBU route and will be imported in a limited number. The 2021 Volkswagen T-ROC will cost you ₹1.35 Lakhs more than before. Meaning, the base price of the car has gone up and now it costs ₹21.35 Lakhs (ex-showroom). But the deliveries of the new T-Roc will begin next month.

Like Before, the T-Roc has changed very little. It still is based on the MQB platform and sports identical aesthetics to the 2020 T-Roc.

What Volkswagen T-Roc offers?

  • To begin with, the T-Roc has a fairly spacious cabin thanks to very good space management and a long wheelbase.
  • Little has changed on the inside too. Like before, T-Roc offers the same interiors. This includes a 10-Inch infotainment system and an interactive all-digital instrument cluster.
  • Also, one cannot miss the features that Indian’s just love, a panoramic sunroof.

The Powerhouse

  • A 1.5-litre TSI (turbo petrol) engine powers the T-Roc. The motor is capable of producing a healthy 150ps of max power with a peak torque output of 250Nm.
  • One of the USPs of the T-Roc is its transmission. Transferring the power from the engine to the front wheels is an enthusiastic 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox.
  • Sadly this does not have an option of a manual transmission.
