German car brand Volkswagen has launched the Tiguan facelift in India priced at ₹31.99 lakh (ex-showroom). This is the second SUV by the company, having launched the Taigun in September this year.

Bookings of the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan have been opened and deliveries to customers will start from mid-January, 2022, VW informed. The five-seater SUV, which is based on the same platform (MQBA0 IN) as the smaller Taigun, will be locally assembled in India.

 

Volkswagen Tiguan Facelift petrol engine

The Volkswagen Tiguan Facelift comes with a petrol-powered, 4-cylinder, 2.0 litre TSI engine which is mated to a 7-speed DSG transmission. This engine makes peak power of 190ps and a peak torque of 320 Nm. This engine was earlier seen on the Tiguan Allspace, 7-seater SUV which has been discontinued. The new Tiguan has an ARAI-certified mileage of 12.65 kmpl.

This is the first time that the company has launched the Volkswagen Tiguan with only a petrol engine as it has completely done away with diesel engines. The previous generation Tiguan which debuted in 2017 with prices starting at ₹28 lakh, came only with a 2-litre diesel engine producing 143ps of peak power.

Some of the visible changes seen on the new Volkswagen Tiguan are adaptive LED headlights, four slat chrome grille, new-look tail-lights and 18-inch alloy wheels. The interiors get a 10-inch digital instrument cluster, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, panoramic sunroof, flat bottom steering wheel, automatic climate control.
