Completely agree. To me, this has been the most impressive entry at Auto India 2020.

While at this price range the T-ROC is sure to sell out in no time, I do imagine that it will be somewhere in the range of 25-28 L. Would be happy to be proven wrong though.

The Karoq looks like a better car (will book that too!) but everything will surely depend on pricing.
The opportunity is indeed limited, but I wonder how well they are prepared with stocking sufficient spares and training staff. What with only 2500 units on offer, dealerships may themselves be wary of going overboard with promotions, training and service.

Even though your argument has merit, that can be said for any luxury car which moves in low volumes. The bigger worry is still the VFM quotient of this car.

The T-Roc is coming through the CBU route. Even if VW goes for aggressive pricing, I seriously doubt if that alone warrants ticking the VFM box.

Spares are going to be expensive since there is barely any scope for localisation and part sharing, what to talk of long wait times for replacements.

VW's strategy to bring the T-Roc is a stop-gap arrangement until the A0 IN line starts rolling out cars. Of course, this does not take anything away from the fantastic package the car, per se, is.

Heard from my SA that there are a total of 60 booking for the T-Roc. Impressive numbers with no details available yet on the pricing or features.

Features are mostly known (but not the exact specs) https://www.volkswagen.co.in/en/models/t-roc.html

Default Volkswagen T-Roc Bookings open in India

Source - https://www.volkswagen.co.in/en/models/t-roc.html

VW have started accepting the bookings for T-Roc .
Pleasantly surprised to see that.

The Volkswagen T-Roc, now launched @ Rs 19.99 lakhs-troc1.jpg

Finally a competent new product from VW . Hope the market doesn't disappoint them.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/attac...971762&thumb=1

Just follow Hyundai Strategy . Launch at a killer price and then silently increase every 3 months rather than optimistic pricing.

Eventhough i am disappointed with VW approach towards India in bringing no new products over the last many years but appreciate the fact that they didnt abandon the country and are trying something out here.

Alles Gute Volkswagen

Isn't this coming as an CBU unit? I doubt they will price it below 15 lakhs.

If this is the case the Vision IN will be a ₹10 lakh car ?

This is a ridiculous expectation. T ROC will rival Jeep Compass and prices are expected to be ~₹ 23- 25 lahks.

Bookings are open they say on the website but for T Roc there is no mention of how much power the engine produces. All it says is its 1.5L. On what basis is anyone supposed to book it ?

For Tiguan Allspace, it says it's 190 HP.

Compass top end comes with 4X4, rear independent suspension etc. T Roc may be comparable to the petrol version (Limited Plus?) which is 21 ex showroom (Bangalore)

Although desirable, the T-Roc in 2020 comes across as a product past the mid point of its life cycle. We deserved this model earlier.

Hope the T-Roc for India gets cylinder deactivation technology and the latest VAG infotainment system atleast

Although these are CBU units being brought in, just for the record, does anyone know if the Virtual Cockpit will be offered? IIRC the demo unit at the AutoExpo had traditional instrument displays.


Curiously, the virtual cockpit finds prominent marketing space for various other models but isn't being pushed on their site for the T-Roc - which btw seems awfully bland on the India site.

Most likely 150 HP and 250 NM.
I guess it will have the DQ200 Gearbox as it does not get AWD and therefore no need for the DQ380/DQ500.

The DQ200 gearbox has a torque limitation of 250 NM.

The previous 1.4 TSI was tuned only to a higher 150 HP and 250 NM guise in the Octavia and A3 but I think we will see two times including a lower 130 HP tune of the new 1.5 TSI in the MQB A0 IN vehicles.
