Volkswagen might bring the T-Roc to India instead of the Taigun

Volkswagen might bring the T-Roc to India instead of the Taigun

Volkswagen might bring the T-Roc concept based compact SUV in India instead of the Taigun, according to a source. The T-Roc is based on VW’s modern MQB platform shown at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

The T-Roc, based on VW’s modern MQB platform, will underpin a range of the company’s future vehicles which will include the next-gen Polo. The German car maker is planning to prepare its Indian facility to make MQB based vehicles. This will help them achieve optimum utilization of the platform with higher level of component sharing to save costs.

The T-Roc concept is a compact, two-door SUV with a roof that is removable. The concept was shown with a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel and in a four-wheel-drive guise. But, later on the concept could also evolve into a compact crossover with four doors and small capacity engines to compete with rivals like the Ford EcoSport.

VW showcased the Taigun concept at the 2014 Auto Expo and it was also rumoured to be made at the company’s Indian plant which made it obvious that it will make it here. However, it would have been expensive to make and again the PQ25 platform might be limited or replaced in the future when the MQB based Polo is launched. In contrast the T-Roc makes a lot of sense as it will be underpinned by the MQB platform.
