Volkswagen T-Roc starts arriving at dealerships

Volkswagen T-Roc has started to reach dealerships. The German carmaker had launched the T-Roc in India at a price of Rs. 19.99 lakh (ex-showroom).

The SUV is imported as a completely built unit (CBU) under the new rule, which allows carmakers to import 2,500 units per year without the need for homologation. In India, the T-Roc is offered with 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 month, we had reported that Volkswagen could locally assemble the T-Roc using completely knocked down kits (CKD). However, this would depend on the demand for the model.
