Volkswagen T-Roc GT; India Launch

Volkswagen to launch 296 HP T-Roc GT in India next year.

Volkswagen India recently launched the VW T-Roc in India. The was a hit when we saw it in the Auto Expo 2020. The price of Volkswagen T-Roc starts at ₹19.99 lakhs (ex-showroom India).

The Volkswagen T-Roc is only available with a single variant in India which is via CBU. The first batch of the car has already been sold out in India and VW is considering to locally assemble the T-Roc in our country.

Now Volkswagen is also considering to introduce the performance-oriented Volkswagen T-Roc GT in India. It is available in the international markets as T-Roc R but since our country is familiar with VW’s GT lines, it’ll be introduced as T-Roc GT.

We have already seen the Polo GT line as India. Now, the German Manufacturer Volkswagen is planning to launch the GT variant if T-Roc. We can expect the price of T-Roc GT to be more premium than the regular T-Roc.

The international variant of VW T-Roc R is a great car for performance enthusiasts as the engine of T-Roc R produces 300PS at 5000RPM and 400 Nm of torque at 2000-5200 RPM, mated to a 7-speed DSG auto transmission. VW claims 0-100 km/hr timing of 4.8 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/hr.

The exteriors of the T-Roc GT are more sporty compared to the regular model. It will get all the bells and whistles loaded to the brim. We can expect it to be priced upwards of Rs. 35 lakhs (ex-showroom) in India.
