The second batch of the Volkswagen T-Roc is scheduled to arrive soon with deliveries to begin from April and the model has now received a price hike of Rs. 1.36 lakh over the 2020 model.
Speaking to carandbike earlier this year, Volkswagen confirmed that the second batch of the T-Roc will arrive in the second quarter of 2021. The company also confirmed that the existing bookings of the SUV will be honoured first with the new batch. The automaker had delivered about 950 units of the T-Roc in 2020, while bookings exceeded over 2000 units. Not just the T-Roc but the Volkswagen Tiguan AllSpace is also confirmed for arrival in India this year.
Volkswagen has not confirmed the reason for the price hike but it can be expected as a result of the volatile exchange rates and rising input costs. The automaker had increased prices of the India-made Polo and Vento in January this year by 2.5 per cent. At the time, prices on the T-Roc and the Tiguan AllSpace remained untouched. The order books too were closed for these models at the time.
Compared to the 2020 model, do not expect any major changes to the 2021 Volkswagen T-Roc. The SUV will continue to be sold in the fully-loaded single variant with the 1.5-litre TSI EVO turbocharged petrol engine that develops 147 bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired with only the 7-speed DSG automatic transmission. On the feature front, the T-Roc gets LED DRLs with projector lens headlamps, panoramic sunroof, leather upholstered seats, Virtual Cockpit, touchscreen infotainment system and more.
