After all the mules and speculations, looks like our subcontinent will finally get the T-Roc.
Volkswagen unveiled the T-Roc at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2017. It is based on the MQB platform and seems likely to be set for a launch later this year. According to reports, the T-Roc will be offered as a CBU (completely built unit) in India with 2,500 units being imported into the country every year without the need for homologation.
The Indian-spec T-Roc will most likely be offered with the choice of a 1.5-litre TSI EVO petrol and 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine. It could get the option of a 6-speed manual along with the 7-speed DSG gearbox. Expect the SUV to be priced in the range of Rs 17 lakh to Rs 20 lakh when it’s launched in India by the second half of 2019.
Once launched, T-Roc will be placed in the hottest segment of the market, the SUV segment where it will compete against the Skoda Kodiaq, Mahindra XUV 5OO and the Jeep Compass.
The first-gen Renault Kwid was truly a game changer. It had a massive stance even though it belonged to the family of hatches. Of late, Renault could hardly inject with some life with the ever increasing competition.
Renault is set to launch the Kwid facelift in India by the end of September. It will come with revamped exterior styling that will borrow bits from the City KZ-E electric hatchback. New headlamps, grille and interiors featuring bits from the upcoming Triber MPV are also expected. The 2019 Kwid facelift will use the same set of petrol engines from the previous iteration. These include a 0.8-litre engine which makes 54PS of power and 72Nm of peak torque and the 1.0-litre engine that puts out 68PS and 91Nm. Both engines are expected to be BS6-ready.
The Kwid facelift is most likely to carry a slight premium over the current car, which retails from Rs 2.76 lakh to Rs 4.76 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Key rivals for the Kwid facelift include the Maruti Suzuki Alto and the Datsun redi-GO. It will also go up against the upcoming Maruti Suzuki S-Presso.
Renault KWID 2019 is going to launch in India with an estimated price of Rs. 2.80 lakh
