2020 Volkswagen T-Roc SUV specification and features
Volkswagen on its way to launch their SUV class vehicle T-Roc, in order to ensure to stay in the competition with Jeep Compass and Hyundai Tucson has revealed the specs of the oncoming SUV. The all-new T-Roc is Volkswagen’s second SUV after the Tiguan AllSpace to be launched in 2020. Owing to the Corona outbreak, the automaker has called-off the physical launch and will be launching the SUV via video-streaming on March 18, 2020.
Unlike the global variant, Volkswagen may introduce T-roc as a rear-wheel-drive SUV in India. The T-Roc SUV could be conceiving a 4 cylinder, 1.5L Tsi-Evo engine that is capable of producing 147 bhp powers and a maximum of 250Nm torque. The engine would be offered with an ACT (active cylinder technology) that allows the car to shut down the 2 cylinders automatically under fewer load conditions such as in normal city drive / slower moving conditions.
Depending upon the need the vehicle switches to the 4-cylinder mode so as to offer full power. The T-Roc delivers a top speed of 205Kmph and can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in 8.4 seconds. It is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission to ensure smooth shifts.
Since it lacks the All-Wheel Drive capability of global variant, Volkswagen has decided to compensate it by adding some extra goodies that the global variant lacks. The Indian T-Rock features all-LED lighting which means that there will be LED head and tail lamps as well as daytime running lights. Other notable convenience features include leather upholstery & seats, panoramic sound roofing, etc. It also features the infotainment system like any other vehicles which supports Android Auto and Apple Car Play,
In ensuring the safety of passengers Volkswagen has added 6 airbags, Anti-lock braking, electronic stability program, traction control, motor slip regulation and electronic differential system that ensure that right braking force is applied in respect with the wheel spin. It also has parking assist, reverse parking camera, Climate based air conditioning system and the keyless entry and start system to enhance customer satisfaction.
The T-Roc is likely to be launched around 20 lakh segments and is likely to provide tough competition with MG hector, Jeep Compass, Hyundai Tucson and Tata Harrier.
