Thank you Seahawk for a wonderful review!. I was always inquisitive to know more about the T-Roc!.

This is one of those cars which is not purchased for acres of space or butch looks. It is for exquisite qualities and exclusivity on the road!. This reminds me of the Skoda Yeti which might not have sold much. But who cares? In India, the number of them on the road have no connection to the quality of the cars .

Wish you many many miles and keep updating the thread .

Congrats on your T-ROC. Great review as well. It really looks very nice.

The tire bolt removal tool is given only in CBU vehicles. I have a Tiguan 5 seater, it is not provided. Just take care not to lose it. Tyre inflator is a useful accessory. I think you may need to start the vehicle to operate it. The fact that they have given a tube of tyre sealant means, the car may not be equipped with self sealing tyres.

Voice assistance was enabled by the dealer free of charge. Kun VW called me to come and get it in their workshop. It was 20-30 mins job. However this feature is not particularly useful if we use Apple Carplay / Android Auto. Wish VW has given wireless Carplay like BMW. It is super convenient.

Wishing you many happy memories with the car.

I agree with GTO sir, it felt like reading an official review with the level of detail and the quality of pictures. I am too a sucker for German timeless design and quality( have a polo currently) and if i was in the market looking for a car in your budget, T-Roc would have been on top of my list. Many happy miles ahead.

Does anyone know why the Audi Q2 is rumored to be priced much higher than the T-Roc? In the UK they are priced close to each other which makes sense given how similar they are under the skin.
Thank you aachat. I'm sure a good example pre-worshipped T-roc will pop up 2-3 years later and you can consider it.
As for the Audi Q2, yes you're right in Europe they are priced similarly (~2000 pound difference in the starting price), but in India the Audi badge is apparently worth an extra 15L over the T-roc. I think they're charging this because they can. Even the recently launched BMW 2-series GC is priced high.

You car simply shines in that blue paint job, very very classy. Was just curious to know your concluding thoughts - are you fully satisfied with the purchase? How did your family members take to the car? Did the like the european ride quality of the car?

Also, wishing you lots of happy miles in this solidly built car!

Thank you SPB_drives! The T-roc won the hearts of all our family members. Since its mostly a 4 seater, there was some concern about space, but the drive quality, fit and finish makes up for it. As for the ride, mostly we drove on smooth roads so no issues with the European setup. But on bad roads, the firmess was felt.

Hey, that was a beautiful summed up review. When I saw this car in flesh somewhere near Anna Nagar Roundtana signal, I just fell in love with the car's design. It is a looker and definitely stands out! The car I saw was of the same color and may be it is your car!

Here's wishing you a lot of happy miles. Also, please throw a note on KUN VWs ASS whenever you experience it!

Congrats on the new car. Looks stunning in this shade. I've been waiting for this review for a long time. A very unique and understated vehicle. Oozes class like no other in this segment. If only the nearest VW dealer to me is not 120 kms away. Oh well, maybe I'll just wait for them to pop up in the used car market. And in the meantime search for an FNG which can deal with VWs.

Speak for yourself. God knows we need this for our cold winter mornings.

Probably the best looking Volkswagen vehicle that is on sale today (excluding the Arteon). Congratulations on your wonderful acquisition, may you have some wonderful miles with this machine.

What an amazing color! It's the best shade of blue that I've seen on a car.
Congratulations and I think you must be feeling quite smug after seeing the Q2's launch prices too

Congratulations Seahawk and wish you many more such happy driving and memories with your T-Roc. While news articles claim that cars allotted to Indian have been completely sold out, I still have an offer for one. Your review is tempting me to go for the same!

A very big congratulations to you Seahawk and your family on the purchase of your new T-Roc.
That shade of blue is absolutely stunning!

VW makes really solid and good looking cars and their super slick dsg with paddle shifters is such a joy to drive. I would have surely picked up one if I didnt already have the Jetta.

Although a few obvious featues such as powered seats are missing, they have priced it decently, especially considering the atrocious pricing on the just launched Audi Q2.

Wish you a million miles of happy motoring ahead.

Congratulations Seahawk!! The T-ROC looks awesome in this color.
You have done a fabulous job of reviewing in your first thread. I was waiting to get a detailed review on T-ROC.
Do share your drive & service experience as only few people in the country have got the chance of getting this car. The after sales support will really determine how serious VW is with their CBU strategy in India.

Wish you many happy milestones with the car!!
