German automobile manufacturer, Volkswagen, is probably one of the best known across the world. They brought their popularity to India in 2007 and the company was an instant hit. From iconic models like the VW Beetle to the newer VW Polo, Volkswagen is a brand that sells cars that offer a lot in terms of performance, style, and affordability. Here are some of the upcoming cars Indian buyers can expect to see in the foreseeable future.
|Volkswagen T-Roc||18.0 Lakh|
|Volkswagen Virtus||15.0 Lakh|
|Volkswagen T-Cross||10.0 Lakh|
|Volkswagen Jetta||17.0 Lakh|
|Expected Launch||November 15, 2019|
|Engine||1.5L TSI EVO Petrol, 2.0L TSI Petrol, 2.0L TDI Diesel|
|Transmission||7-Speed DSG Automatic, 6-Speed Manual|
The Volkswagen T-Roc is expected to be made available in India sometime in November, 2019 or early 2020, and will be the first midsize SUV from the company. It will compete against the Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster, Jeep Compass, and Mahindra XUV500 in this segment but will probably be the most expensive of the lot with a base price of 18.0 lakh. The reason behind the T-Roc’s pricing is the fact that it will be imported from Europe and not manufactured in the country. But, with the help of a used car evaluation tool, you could get your hands on one for a relatively good deal. Currently, the T-Roc is powered by a 1.5L TSI EVO petrol engine that comes mated to a 7-speed automatic DSG transmission. There could also be a 2.0L TSI petrol and a 2.0L TDI diesel variant released to the Indian market. The diesel engine will feature a 6-speed manual transmission as well as a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission. Although the SUV is available in 5 different variants in the UK, India might only see a couple of them being released.
|Expected Launch||June 01, 2020|
|Engine||1.0L MPI Petrol, 1.0L TSI Petrol, 1.5L TSI Petrol, 2.0L TSI Petrol, 1.6L TDI Diesel|
|Transmission||5-Speed Manual, 6-Speed Manual, 7-Speed DSG Automatic|
Based on the MBQ A0 platform from Volkswagen, the Virtus is designed to be compact, sturdy, and extremely safe. The Virtus was first unveiled in Sao Paulo, Brazil where it was confirmed that it will be the sedan version of the latest VW Polo Sixth-Gen – one of the most old cars in India. But the similarities between the Polo and the Virtus don’t end there. The Virtus will look and perform almost exactly like the Polo and will only get a similar boot as is on the VW Vento. From the upgraded exteriors to the stylish interiors, the Virtus will share the Polo’s design and powertrain as well which include a 1.0L MPI, 1.0L TSI, 1.5L TSI, and 2.0L TSI petrol engines. There is also said to be a 1.6L TDI diesel variant that could be launched in India. All variants will come with a 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual, and 7-speed DSG automatic transmission option. Some of the features you can find on the upcoming Virtus are LED headlamps and tail lamps, panoramic sunroof, digital instrument cluster, Virtual Cockpit, touchscreen infotainment system, flat bottom steering wheel, and wireless charging.
|Expected Launch||June 13, 2020|
Although details about the car have not yet been released, the Volkswagen T-Cross has been confirmed and is set to make its way to India sometime in 2020. It will be based on the company’s MBQ A0-IN platform and will be the first SUV to have that distinction. Volkswagen also confirmed that the T-Cross will be launched in Europe, South America, and China before finally making it to the Indian subcontinent. The car will first make an appearance at the Indian Auto Expo in 2020 where details surrounding its powertrain, interiors, exteriors, and more will be confirmed. While we do know that the T-Cross will be a compact SUV, it is expected to be bigger than the European variant as it will use the VW Virtus as its base rather than the VW Polo.
|Expected Launch||July 03, 2020|
|Engine||1.4L TSI Turbocharged Petrol, 2.0L Diesel|
|Transmission||6-Speed Manual, 8-Speed DSG Automatic|
Officially launched at the Detroit Motor Show in 2018, the seventh-generation Volkswagen Jetta is set to make its way over to Indian soil in mid-2020. It will be based on the new MBQ platform which will increase its size just a bit as compared to the previous model. Like the VW Virtus, the Jetta will feature a new design look for the upcoming sedan and will have a coupe-style swooping roofline. In terms of features, the Jetta will come with Full-LED headlamps on the front with a larger grille as well. On the back, the Jetta now comes with wraparound tail lamps that point inward to the license plate in the middle. The dashboard is also upgraded and now features a 10.2-inch digit instrument cluster with Active Info Display technology – the same used in the new Polo and Virtus. Powering this beast will be the same 1.4L TSI Turbocharged petrol engine with either a 6-speed manual or 8-speed DSG automatic transmissions. The car is also expected to come with the standard 2.0L diesel engine that is found on most Volkswagen sedans. With a jam packed lineup of features, the upcoming Jetta is definitely going to have people preparing RC transfers a lot faster.
With these four Volkswagen cars ready to launch in the coming months, the Indian market could have some serious competition in their respective segments. The advantage VW brings to the people is its unmatched affordability and superior performance. For years Volkswagen has been topping the charts in India and it looks like nothing much is going to change once these cars are released.
