Volkswagen cars are not amongst the best sellers of the Indian market, and with a premium price tag over each segment, there have only been few cars in their line-up which have managed to sell decently. Apart from Pollo, the premium SUV crossover Volkswagen T-Roc has also managed to impress the Indian audience quite a bit however, this was only the case for the first batch of 1000 cars which were sold pretty quickly and after which the car was discontinued for a short period of time. and when the car returned back, things were not quite the same.

The Volkswagen T-Roc made its debut in the Indian market back in March 2020 and was exported as a CBU with only 1000 units on board. The car was priced at Rs. 19.99 lakh and the demand for it risen up so quickly that the car was declared out of stock within a few days. However, the car did make its comeback with few minor updates to it on April 2021, but still as a CBU and this time with a price hike that made the price of the car rise up to Rs. 21.35 lakh, which wasn’t taken by the audience pretty lightly, as the car only managed to make a sale of 166 units in the past month compared to 2,025 units in the previous month. This roughly translates to an MoM decline of 24.3%.

Talking about the design of the car, the Volkswagen T-Roc is built on the highly flexible MQB platform and measures 4,234 mm in length, 1,819 mm in width, 1,573 mm in height and a wheelbase of 2,590 mm. The car comes with a single powertrain option of a 1.5-litre four-cylinder TSI EVO turbocharged petrol engine which can generate up to a maximum power of 150 PS and 250 Nm of peak torque.
