Volkswagen has woke up from a deep slumber and how. This week has been arguably the most exciting one for the German carmaker in a very long time. VW has introduced another SUV in its lineup this week itself. After the introduction of Taigun and Tiguan, the second batch of the fully imported T-Roc has arrived on our shores. Last time around, the 1000 units of the T-Roc were sold out within 6 months. Realizing the high demand for the crossover SUV, VW has decided to bring in another batch as CBU. This is a great addition to VW’s strategy to launch new products including SUVs in India under its India 2.0 initiative. Let us talk you through the features, safety and other specifications of the 2021 T-Roc.
2021 VW T-Roc – Exterior Highlights
Now the 2021 Volkswagen T-Roc has not been updated or facelifted which means it will still come with a sleek LED headlamp unit with an imposing grille. Further down on the bumpers, there are rectangular LED elements that give the T-Roc its distinctive look. The side profile is characterized by sharp lines and the large wheels really help the look of the car. There are premium-looking 17-inch alloy wheels. At the rear, the tailgate looks simple with sleek LED tail lamps and there is no unnecessary fuss with connecting LED bars or the likes. The rear bumpers are quite chunky and the black body cladding all around really helps with the SUV look as well. Its broad shoulders, large wheel arches, sloping rear windscreen and black contrast roof also help it stand out from the crop of other SUVs in the market. VW offers five dual-tone colour options – Curcuma Yellow, Energetic Orange, Indium Grey, Ravenna Blue and Pure White, all with a black roof. The T-Roc is also available in a Deep Black Pearl exterior finish.
