Volkswagen launches T-Roc SUV at Rs 19.99 lakhs

Volkswagen Passenger Cars India launched T-Roc -- its second sports utility vehicle (SUV) in 2020 -- starting Rs 19.99 lakh, ex-showroom.

Launched as a CBU or completely built unit, the VW T-Roc will compete with the popular locally manufactured SUVs on sale such as the Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta and Tata Harrier, among others.

The T-Roc will be positioned below the recently launched seven-seater VW Tiguan Allspace, priced at Rs 33.12 lakh in the company’s SUV portfolio for the domestic market. Both the SUVs are based on the German carmaker’s globally popular and highly flexible modular transverse matrix or MQB platform.

The VW T-Roc is powered in only 1.5-litre petrol engine. The petrol engine can produce peak power output of 150PS (at 5,000-6,000 rpm) and deliver maximum torque of 250Nm (at 1500-3500rpm). Mated to the seven-speed automatic gearbox, the 1.5-liter engine comes equipped with active cylinder technology.

The company will offer three free services and a four-year warranty along with a four-year roadside assistance with the T-Roc.

Offered in six shades, the company said deliveries of the T-Roc would begin in mid-April.
