I have used it effectively during night drives, which I like but have been refraining as engagement levels decreases and there is a risk of dozing off. So effectively, unless you drive predominantly during night time and dont have the fear of dozing off, its a good to have feature but not essential in India IMHO. Until highway lane discipline comes to the society at large, its not some thing which will make a difference

Well, I have been using cruise control on my 2019 creta and motorcycle (fatboy) for about 30-50 % of the highway driving. It is really helpful and gives intermittent rest. Additionally if one wants to adhere to a specific speed limit, cruise control is a boon.
It depends which part of india you live in and what highways you frequent. I have driven extensively up north and down south, had a similar experience.

In addition I have a 2009 Honda city AT, it doesn't have cruise control, I feel handicapped on the highway sometimes.

Agree with you largely. Mostly, on long weekends or holidays is when, I get a chance to go outside of Chennai, the high way looks like WE express high way on weekdays. Have tried leaving home from 5.am-7 am slots and have largely not been able effectively use more than 2-3 mns. My experience has been mostly to drive, crossing lanes to get ahead which is not helpful using cruse control. Once I cross 100 kms post Chennai on the Southern side I get fair chance to use the cruse control. However, there is good amount of vehicles coming on the wrong side so I try and retain accelerator control.

2021 Volkswagen T-Roc bookings open

Volkswagen has commenced bookings for the second batch of the T-Roc. Customer deliveries will start from May 2021.

The 2021 Volkswagen T-Roc is priced at Rs. 21.35 lakh (ex-showroom). The crossover is imported as a completely built unit (CBU).

The T-Roc is based on the MQB platform and is powered by a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine that produces 148 BHP @ 5,000-6,000 rpm and 250 Nm @ 1,500-3,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Last year, the carmaker had imported 1,000 units of the T-Roc, under the new rule which allows brands to import 2,500 units without the need for homologation.

Does anybody have an idea if the on-road price of this would land below 25 Lacs in Delhi? I'm planning to get a car and confused between the Kushaq (not yet launched) and this. My decision is slightly tilting in the favour of T-Roc due to the CBU build and the smashing looks in red colour with dual tone shade (Kushaq IMO looks good too).

The T-Roc isn't available in Red in India. See the website here -

You can reach out to any VW dealer, they should be able to help you with the on-road price. I believe the tax/registration for CBUs is slightly higher.

What would be the annual maintenance cost of this car? Will it be 20k+?

All my family members including me own Hyundai/Hondas and we are used to <10k per year. Ive heard that VW costs will be higher but would like to get a ball-park especially for this imported car.

Many of us have not run our cars much. However, from the information that I have from few other owners, the service cost at 15000kms interval is around 13 k. This excludes labour as it's free in first year.

My bad! I thought VW introduced this red shade shown above as a part of the relaunch, I request the mods to kindly verify and update the same.
One of the nearby dealers here gave me an approximate of 26 Lacs on-road (on call) and I doubt there would be significant discounts on this one like those on the Tiguan Allspace.
And I'll be creating a separate thread very soon but just wanted to know should I increase the budget a bit more and wait for the Tiguan facelift or is the T-Roc a better proposition at the price? Since I have anyhow decided to cross the 22 lacs barrier so I thought why not go the whole hog. I hope VW prices the Tiguan facelift competitively this time since the Allspace is sitting right there at 34 Lacs on-road (with discounts) in some cities.

A fresh batch of T-Roc has arrived at Mumbai port. Apart from T-Roc, there are several other cars of different brands, which will be exported out of the country. Sorry for the bad pic though!!

What on earth is CBU Reg charge and why is the dealer charging 20K for it. Is the dealer going to ARAI to get it homologated and register this car. Atrocious. Even the Delivery and documentation charges of 20K is ridiculous.
