The Volkswagen T-Roc will be imported to India via CBU (Completely Built Unit) route under the government’s new homologation rule that allows the car manufacturers to import 2,500 units annually without local homologation process.
The latest set of spy pictures show that the Volkswagen T-Roc will feature a sleek hexagonal grille, sporty bumper with a large mesh grille for the airdam, horizontal LED projector headlamps with bullet-shaped LED DRLs and horizontal fog lamps at the front end.
The side profile will be adored by pronounced wheel arches, underbody cladding and 5-spoke alloy wheels. At the back, it will have a beefy bumper with black cladding, a roof-mounted spoiler, silver skid plate, reflectors and horizontal LED taillamps.
As of now, the interior details of the India-spec version are scanty. The global model has an all-black interior with body-coloured bits on the centre panel, dashboard and door pads. The fabric seat upholstery with contrast stitching adds more to its premium look. The SUV also gets an 11.3-inch digital instrument screen and a secondary 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
