2021 Volkswagen T-Roc Second Batch Already Sold Out In India

Premium compact crossovers have been arriving in India as if it is a free-for-all. Right now, there are several auto brands that are prepping new models for our market – one of those is Volkswagen. Launched for the first time back in March 2020, the Volkswagen T-Roc reached India with tepid expectations. Being a CBU (Completely Built Unit), the T-Roc was always going to be a relatively expensive car to begin with. On top of that, the first batch only consisted of 1,000 units for the whole country for 2020. And despite featuring a sticker price of around Rs 20 Lakh (ex-showroom), all 1,000 cars were sold-off by September 2020 – in a matter of just 6 months.

Volkswagen now had a fair idea of the T-Roc’s demand in India, following the sale of the first batch. Post that rapid sale, VW India shut its order books for a while. However, it soon started accepting fresh bookings for the upcoming second batch. The German automaker then announced that it will soon be bringing in the second batch to our market. In a short amount of time following that, Volkswagen stated that the T-Roc has been officially sold-out for the whole for 2021 as well. Chances are that the company will bring in another batch at some point, though that entirely depends on future demand.

Moreover, according to Indian rules on import, manufacturers are only allowed to bring in 2,500 units per year. Anything beyond that, and they will have to homologate the car for our market. As for the T-Roc itself, it is a pretty good-looking and well-proportioned crossover. In typical Volkswagen fashion, however, its exterior styling is subtle yet sophisticated.

The front fascia sports a wide grille and LED headlamps, plus a sculpted bumper with integrated air intakes. Meanwhile, the side profile features flared wheel arches and 17-inch alloy wheels, while black body cladding is present too. The overall silhouette is further accentuated by the T-Roc’s dual-tone paint, raked C-pillars, and silver roof rails.

Finally, coming to the rear of the Volkswagen T-Roc, things seem pretty mundane. But designers have given it large LED tail lamps, a roof spoiler, and a sporty-looking bumper with fake vents and exhaust tips. The latter has now become a trademark of new VW and Audi models. In India, the T-Roc is only sold in one variant – it gets pretty much all the bells & whistles. There is a panoramic sunroof, automatic LED headlamps, keyless entry & go, dual-zone climate control, and a digital instrument cluster.

To add to the premium feel, this crossover also gets full-leather upholstery, 6-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a touch-infotainment system with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay. Meanwhile, the T-Roc’s safety systems include 6 airbags, ABS with EBD & Brake Assist, ESC, TCS, TPMS, and HSA.

Motive force is provided by a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-banger that drinks petrol, and consequently makes 147hp and 250Nm of torque. This engine spins the front tires through a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox, enabling the T-Roc to hit 100 kmph in 8.4 seconds and a top speed of 205 kmph. While it isn’t a rare car internationally, its limited numbers in India means spotting one will be quite an event.
