As you might know, VW Group’s India division has this ‘SUVW strategy’, which as the name suggests, is to focus on SUVs. Which also explains why the 6th gen Polo never made it to India despite the market still selling hatchbacks in large quantities every month. Anyway, one of the SUVs that’ll be in VW India’s portfolio soon is the Tiguan facelift.
The Tiguan facelift made its global debut in July 2020 with a 320 hp Tiguan R, but the Indian market is getting only the standard model. Features list includes LED Matrix headlights, LED cornering lights, LED taillights, 18-inch ‘Frankfurt’ alloy wheels, and a panoramic sunroof.
Features in the cabin would include a digital cockpit, a 10-inch central touchscreen, auto AC, USB charging ports, and ambient lighting. Safety equipment includes up to 6 airbags, ESP, TPMS, hill start assist & hill descent control and a few more.
The Tiguan facelift in India will be powered by the same 2.0-litre (1,984 cc) 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that powers the Allspace, with the same 140 kW (190 hp) and 320 Nm of torque on offer. The engine is paired with a 7-speed DSG (with paddle shifters) and 4Motion AWD system.
