All New Volkswagen T-Roc Coming To India In 2019
All new Volkswagen T-Roc is a compact SUV that rivals the likes of the MINI Countryman and Honda HR-V in Europe. It was a much needed missing link in Volkswagen’s global line-up and has been well received as an urban SUV alternative to a car like the Golf. And now we have exclusive information on its arrival in India. Mechnotechs has learnt that after much deliberation, the VW T-Roc will be launched before the end of the year. It will come as a petrol-only model. This is in-line with a view the company has on petrol once again becoming the dominant play in the Indian market context. Sources in Europe have shared that the Volkswagen T-Roc will be imported under the Indian government’s scheme that allows 2500 units to be imported without local homologation.
Dimensions Of All New Volkswagen T-Roc
The all-new Volkswagen T-Roc is a compact SUV, around 4 meters in length. It slightly resembles other VW vehicles, however, it has its own individuality. The wide grille looks very attractive and has the VW logo in the centre. The projector twin headlamps are sleek looking ones. It will have daytime running LEDs too. The stylish bumper has fog lamps placed below. There is a scuff plate too at the bottom. The side is slightly boxy looking and gets somebody cladding, attractive alloy wheels and a sloping roofline. The lines that run across the vehicle are crisp. The T-Roc is the right size and shape to attract the attention of the Indian buyer. The segment it would slot into is the one ruled by the Hyundai Creta at present. While the T-Roc’s exterior dimensions fall just short of the Creta’s, it does have a longer wheelbase at 2603 mm (the Creta’s is 2590 mm). That is what grabs you about the T-Roc the first time you see it – how ample and roomy the cabin seems.
Interior Of All New Volkswagen T-Roc
The Volkswagen T-Roc has finally been unveiled. This is Volkswagen’s new compact SUV which is based on the MQB platform. The T-Roc is expected to go on sale in Europe by November this year. Volkswagen had earlier released a teaser video of the T-Roc, which gave a glimpse of certain features and interiors of this new SUV. The new pictures, however, bring more clarity on what to expect from this new vehicle. The T-Roc will is the smallest ever SUV by the German giant. First shown at the Geneva Motor Show, the Volkswagen T-Roc will enter production by the end of 2017 and will be seen on roads by the year-end. It is positioned below the Tiguan and is based on the VW Golf and Audi Q2 platform.
The production version looks quite different from the way the concept looked. This a four-door compact SUV. It gets a stylish headlamp, a wide grille, LED tail lamps and large fog lamps. The T-Roc is an attractive looking SUV. It is unlike any compact SUV and has a good presence.

This shall be the pricing until Britain has to pay an import duty from other European nations (which is 2019). If launched in India, it should be priced around Rs. 15 lakhs to Rs. 20 lakhs. This will be a premium compact SUV.

Overall, this is a very sporty looking compact SUV. It will be offered in three trim options – Base, Sport and Style. The Sport version will have black interiors and a sporty feel inside, while the Style version will have four colour-themed interiors.
Volkswagen T-Roc Launch Date
The new Volkswagen T-Roc should be launched by November this year and the deliveries will begin by December in Europe. There is no indication yet about this SUV coming to India. We don’t think Volkswagen will be able to get this car in the Indian market as it is made on the MQB platform and in India the company might not manufacture its new cars on this platform. This will mean that the company might just struggle to find itself to grow in India unless the new-generation platform is highly localised.
