The SUV will continue to be sold in the fully-loaded single variant with the 1.5-litre TSI EVO turbocharged petrol engine

Speaking to carandbike earlier this year, Volkswagen confirmed that the second batch of the T-Roc will arrive in the second quarter of 2021. The company also confirmed that the existing bookings of the SUV will be honoured first with the new batch. The automaker had delivered about 950 units of the T-Roc in 2020, while bookings exceeded over 2000 units. Not just the T-Roc but the Volkswagen Tiguan AllSpace is also confirmed for arrival in India this year.

Volkswagen has not confirmed the reason for the price hike but it can be expected as a result of the volatile exchange rates and rising input costs. The automaker had increased prices of the India-made Polo and Vento in January this year by 2.5 per cent. At the time, prices on the T-Roc and the Tiguan AllSpace remained untouched. The order books too were closed for these models at the time.
