VOLKSWAGEN T-ROC

INTRODUCTION

The Volkswagen T-Roc is a capable SUV that packs advanced engineering and safety tech. In fact, we have driven the T-Roc, and you can read our review HERE. Now, cabin space influences purchase decisions in the C-SUV segment, and this story will give you a better perspective of the T-Roc’s interior packaging.

With an ingres of 650mm, sliding into the driver’s seat is easy and the low-set dash provides excellent frontal visibility. The well-bolstered seats are both, supportive and comfortable with a seat-base length of 510mm and a backrest height of 630mm. The Volkswagen T-Roc gets maximum legroom of 840mm at the front, and the wider cabin translates into a shoulder room of 1,270mm.

Besides the ergonomically-laid cabin, the T-Roc also features a 10.25-inch virtual cockpit instrument cluster, an 8.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, heated seats and dual-zone climate control system.

At the back though, the story is completely different. For starters, the shorter 460mm seat-base length means the rear seats lack under-thigh support. Then, the slightly narrower cabin of 1,250mm, and the tall floor hump means that a third passenger unwelcome. The 840mm of maximum legroom is decent, at best.

Headroom (Max/min) 970/900mm
Shoulder room 1250mm

The Volkswagen T-Roc gets a large cargo capacity of 445-litres. To put it into perspective, it is significantly more than the Jeep Compass, Tata Harrier and the Hyundai Creta.

ENGINE & PERFORMANCE

ENGINE & PERFORMANCE

The T-Roc is offered with a single powertrain option – a 1.5-litre TSI ‘Evo’ petrol engine paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission powering the front wheels exclusively. The four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine develops 148bhp and 250Nm, which is not a new performance benchmark for the segment. It does have a fuel-saving trick up its sleeve though, it can shut off two cylinders during coasting to save fuel – though the company has not stated how efficient it is in ARAI’s testing cycle.

BRAKING AND SAFETY

BRAKING AND SAFETY

The T-Roc is imported as a completely built unit (CBU), offered in a single variant with six colours to choose from.

Inside, the T-Roc hopes to awe with its features; the highlights inside include the large panoramic sunroof which helps brighten up the space, an eight-inch central infotainment touchscreen with multiple connectivity options and in-built features and an 11.3-inch all-digital driver display. Heated front seats, a dual-zone climate control system with rear A/C vents, split-folding rear seats and intelligent storage space are other features that make the T-Roc’s cabin exciting.

The T-Roc has a younger version of the familiar VW fascia seen on SUVs like the Tiguan and the AllSpace. The brighter colour palette, unique hexagonal LED DRLs on the front bumper, large 17-inch alloy wheels, design flourishes like the sail-boat like C-pillar design and concealed exhausts make the T-Roc stand out amongst the competition.

CONCLUSION

CONCLUSION

The Volkswagen T-Roc is a driver’s SUV, no two ways about it. It is dynamically sound, is packed with safety features and comes packed with advanced engineering. The cabin space isn’t half bad either. However, if interior space is your priority, then there are better options in the market..

Things to keep in mind before Buying Volkswagen T-Roc

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

    Popular used car Volkswagen T-Roc

    Ex-Showroom ₹19,99,000
    The Volkswagen T-Roc is a sporty crossover and a departure from Volkswagen’s understated styling. Volkswagen has nicely played with the colour palette, and that combined with its superior build quality, makes the T-Roc a premium offering in its segment. With no diesel powertrain on offer, only time will tell if Volkswagen has missed a trick in an otherwise handsome package.
