    Volkswagen T-Roc India launch on March 18, 2020

    Volkswagen will announce pricing for its second new SUV for India, the T-Roc on March 18, 2020. The launch of the T-Roc will follow the market introduction of the Tiguan AllSpace that will take place on March 3, 2020.  
     
    The T-Roc made its debut recently at the Auto Expo 2020 in February and bookings are currently underway at all Volkswagen dealerships in India.  Volkswagen will bring the T-Roc to India as  full-import initially, under the 2,500 car rule. 
     
    The SUV will be sold in India in a single variant that will be loaded to the brim.  Standard features on the T-Roc will include full-LED headlamps and tail-lamps, dual-tone alloy wheels, and front and rear parking sensors, a digital instrument cluster, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, a panoramic sunroof and ‘Vienna’ leather seats. It will come with six airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC, a tyre pressure monitoring system and a parking camera as standard. 
    The T-Roc is around 4.2 meters long and sits below the Tiguan in the brand's global line-up.  Under the hood, it will come with a 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine good for 150hp and 250Nm of torque.  Gearbox duties will be carried out by a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox. There will be no manual transmission on offer. 
     
    Expect VW to price the T-Roc in India around the Rs 23 lakh mark. At this pricing, it will rival the likes of the Jeep Compass and the soon-to-be-launched updated Hyundai Tucson.
