The safety features available on the SUV will include a reverse parking camera, Electronic Stability Control, six airbags, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and more.
Powering the Volkswagen T-Roc will be a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine that will deliver a maximum power of 150PS and a peak torque of 240Nm. The motor will come mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The new model will have a Front Wheel Drive layout. A manual transmission and AWD won’t be available.
While the Volkswagen T-Roc won’t come cheap, it will end up rivalling a range of models including the top-end variants of the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Hector and Tata Harrier. The T-Roc is one of the many models that the manufacturer has planned to bring to us under its India 2.0 strategy.
