Volkswagen Sold 166 Units Of The T-Roc In India In April 2021

Based on the same MQB platform as the Golf, the T-Roc is a compact crossover from Volkswagen. Being one of the newer models in the German brand’s arsenal, the T-Roc is billed as a premium car in our market and comes over as a CBU (Completely Built Unit). This is primarily one of the reasons why it costs Rs 21.35 Lakh (ex-showroom, India). It made its India debut back in March 2020 as Volkswagen brought in 1,000 units, all of which were sold out in six months! The second batch of the T-Roc finally arrived a couple of months ago, and in April 2021, Volkswagen sold 166 units in the country.

As far as its external dimensions are concerned, the Volkswagen T-Roc measures 4,234mm in length, 1,819mm in width, and 1,573mm in height.

Compared to some other crossover SUVs, the design of the Volkswagen T-Roc is not as menacing or brutish. However, the T-Roc does get a few cool styling bits such as the LED DRLs around the faux vents up front, dual-chamber LED headlamps, a wide front grille, a floating roof effect with two-tone paint, and a raked C-pillar. There is no doubt that the T-Roc is a good-looking car in a not-too-flashy-looking attire. For those who like subtlety with a touch of chic, this premium crossover SUV will fit the bill.

The interior of the Volkswagen T-Roc comes across as a well-built and reasonably practical space. However, it is not the most fun or exciting-looking piece of modern Volkswagen design, and there are hints of blandness in the way some of the controls feel in terms of their look and operation.

Having said that, the T-Roc comes well-equipped with features that one might find handy in day-to-day usage. The list of equipment includes a panoramic sunroof, keyless entry with push-button start, leather upholstery, a 6-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment head unit with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, a 6-speaker audio system, paddle shifters, a digital driver’s display, and an electronic parking brake.
