Second batch of Volkswagen T-Roc priced at INR 21.35 lakh in India
The Volkswagen T-Roc It turned out to be an out of control success for the German automaker in India. Started in March 2020, Volkswagen All 1,000 units of the T-Roc allocated for India in just six months were sold out. The last batch of the VW T-Roc came to India as a full import and cost INR 19.99 lakh (from the showroom). Volkswagen has now announced the price for the second batch of the T-Roc, which will arrive in India very soon.
At a price of 21.35 lakh (ex showroom), the second batch receives a premium of 1.36 lakh compared to the first batch. According to the VW India website, this price is still introductory and will therefore be increased later. Selected VW dealers have also started booking the T-ROC 2021 for a token amount of INR 50,000. The official market launch of the VW T-Roc is expected for the end of March. Deliveries are scheduled to begin this month. The second batch will still come to our coast as a full import.
Given that the T-Roc has been quite well received in our market, VW might consider local assembly at a later date. It also remains to be seen whether VW will import just 1,000 units like the first batch. The first batch of the T-Roc was only available in a single fully loaded variant and was powered by a 1.5-liter TSI EVO petrol engine. This engine is designed for 147 HP and 250 Nm. It was combined exclusively with a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission.
The T-Roc manages 0-100 km / h in just 8.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 205 km / h at high pressure. The Volkswagen T-Roc is also based on the MQB-AO platform, but this is not the highly localized MQB-AO-IN platform that the platform will be based on Taigun SUV. The T-Roc has so impressed Indian buyers because of its superior build quality, great driving dynamics and very elegant appearance. Although Volkswagen likes to refer to the T-Roc as an SUV, its compact dimensions and design make it more of a crossover.
In addition, it was loaded in terms of features keeping the occupants safe, entertained, and hpy. The highlights include LED daytime running lights, headlights with projector lenses, a panoramic sliding roof, two-tone light alloy wheels, leather upholstery, automatic air conditioning, touchscreen infotainment system, virtual cockpit and much more. If you’re in the market to buy a German SUV and can’t afford one of the three big German badges, Volkswagen T-Roc is the car.
