Inside, the T-ROC’s dashboard design seems familiar as it borrows plenty of bits from other VW cars. Those of you own a Jetta/Passat will especially be familiar with its cabin.

Safety features on offer are six airbags, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors, a rear view camera, and electronic stability program.     

Under the hood, the T-ROC comes with a 1.5-litre TSI engine that develops 150PS of power, paired to a 7-speed DSG gearbox. The TDI diesel engine won’t be available as Skoda Auto Volkswagen India will have a petrol-only portfolio in the initial phase of the BS6 era.  

The T-ROC will launch in India by April this year, with prices likely to start from Rs 18 lakh (ex-showroom India). When launched, it will lock horns with the Skoda Karoq and Jeep Compass.
