Skoda and Volkswagen will showcase some there first efforts of the India 2.0 campaign at the upcoming 2020 Auto Expo. One of these will be the Volkswagen T-Roc SUV you see here. The small SUV has been spotted testing here and seem to closely follow the international-spec vehicle's looks.

 

The T-Roc sits below the Tiguan in the brand's SUV line-up and has a more outward design theme to it. You have a new face with the larger grille, large air dam, wider lamps. This is followed by the more prominent lines all-around. The T-Roc also has a more flowing roof-line to it compared to say the Tiguan. The rear too has a new layered look to it. This is also the first VW SUV to come with two-tone paintwork as an option The SUV's are reminiscent of other VWs but with a sharper edge to it thanks to the slimmer vents and a dashboard that is placed at an angle away from the driver. Expect the Indian-version to come with features like a virtual cockpit instrument cluster, wireless charging, a 10-inch infotainment system with Android Auto/Apple Carplay, a panoramic sunroof and so on.

The Volkswagen T-Roc's interiors boast a premium feel that makes it look like a bigger, more expensive SUV than it is. Interiors can be specced lavishly, as seen here, with colour-matched panels and Volkswagen's digital TFT display instrument cluster called the Active Info Display

Internationally the T-Roc is available with three petrol and one diesel engine. The base engine is a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol with 115PS, a 150PS 1.5-litre turbo-petrol and a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol with 190PS. The diesel is a 2.0-litre unit with 50PS or 197PS. These can be had with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch auto. AWD is optional. We think the India-spec car will get the 1.5-litre petrol.

The T-Roc is based on the MQB platform and will compete against cars like the Jeep Compass and Kia Seltos with prices expected to be around Rs 25 lakh.
