Home / Home / Volkswagen T-Roc Launched

 

After being showcased at the Auto Expo 2020, the Volkswagen T-Roc has been launched at an introductory price of Rs 19.99 lakh (ex-showroom).

The Volkswagen T-Roc is the German marque’s entry into the premium SUV segment where it is expected to rub shoulders with the Hyundai Tucson and the Jeep Compass. Built on VW’s versatile MQB platform, the T-Roc retains the contemporary VW design language. The muscular bodywork is supplemented with features including a panoramic sunroof, LED lamps all around and 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and 215/55 tyres. The cabin’s list of creature comforts includes two-zone climate control, leather seats and touchscreen infotainment with smartphone compatibility. In the safety department, VW have you covered with six airbags, ABS, ESC and a tyre pressure monitoring system. The T-Roc has also received a five-star rating in the Euro NCAP tests for adult and child passengers.

The best part of the Volkswagen T-Roc may be its engine. Under the bonnet is a 1.5-litre TSI (Turbocharged Stratified Injection), in-line-four petrol engine that churns out 150 hp between 5,000 and 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 250 Nm between 1,500 and 3,500 rpm; dispensed to the wheels through a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission. The engine also features Active Cylinder Technology (ACT) which senses driving patterns and deactivates two out of four cylinders when full power is not needed to maximize efficiency. That’s neat.

As of now, the Volkswagen T-Roc will only be available as a single variant with a choice of six colours.

Would gape at fast cars. Still does but now has a chance to drive some of them. Hates driving in traffic but makes up for with a spot of off-roading or the occasional track outing. Insta: @motoknight
