    Volkswagen T-ROC Bookings Closed

    by Saransh Goyal on Thursday, Sep 17 2020

    Volkswagen has stopped taking bookings for its compact SUV, the T-ROC, which went on sale in the country earlier this year. The carmaker has said that all the 1000 units of the T-ROC allotted to India for 2020 have been sold out. Volkswagen bought the T-ROC in India as a CBU (Completely Built-Up) and it was offered in a single fully loaded variant priced at Rs 19.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

    Under the hood, the T-ROC is powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine making 150PS/250Nm mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The T-ROC also gets segment-first active cylinder management tech which shuts down two cylinders depending on power demand in order to maximise fuel efficiency. 

    Since the T-ROC was available in a single variant only, it comes loaded with features like a panoramic sunroof, heated front seats, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, LED headlamps, powered driver seat, six airbags, ESP, traction control, tyre pressure monitoring system and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

    Volkswagen has not yet said anything about restarting the bookings for the T-ROC but we expect to happen by early 2021. Before accepting bookings again, the German carmaker may also work towards localising the T-ROC considering its high demand in the market. And if it happens, expect the T-ROC to receive a price cut making it a better value for money offering than before. VW might also introduce some more variants of the T-ROC if the carmaker localises the SUV in India. 

    In India, Volkswagen T-ROC rivals the likes of the Jeep Compass, Tata Harrier, Hyundai Tucson and the Skoda Karoq.
