India to get the Volkswagen Tiguan soon after Europe launch

India to get the Volkswagen Tiguan soon after Europe launch

During the launch of the Ameo, Volkswagen announced that India will get the Tiguan soon after its Europe launch. The Tiguan is a versatile five-seater SUV from the German manufacturer's stable. 

On the outside, the compact SUV from Volkswagen gets swept back headlamps, twin horizontal chromed grille accents, pseudo-bash plate and sharp styling. The rear of the Tiguan has a Volkswagen hatchback feel but with a slightly higher stance. The side of the compact-SUV has smooth flowing lines and well balanced proportions. 

On the inside, the car will get keyless entry, push-button start and USB port enabled touchscreen infotainment system as standard. The compact SUV will also come with seating for five adults which the Michael Mayer, Brand Head of Volkswagen Passenger Cars India, confirmed today. The Tiguan could also get dual-zone climate control as an optional extra. 

In terms of performance, the Indian-spec Tiguan is expected to get the petrol 1.4-litre TSI engine from the Volkswagen Jetta. The compact-SUV will use the same motor but in a different state of tune. It will come paired with the 6-speed gearbox which could feature different gearing ratios. With that engine, the Tiguan will have around 120bhp and around 200Nm of torque. And for the diesel lovers, the compact SUV is expected to get the 1.6-litre diesel engine making 105bhp and churns out around 250Nm of torque. The Tiguan could also get the more powerful 2-litre diesel engine from the Volkswagen family. If the 2-litre diesel does see the light of the day in the Tiguan expect it to be mated to an automatic gearbox.

The new Volkswagen Tiguan launches in Europe later in 2016, and from Michael Mayers confirmation, we can expect it to launch in India at the same time as USA sometime in 2017. The compact SUV will be priced in the Rs 12 lakh to Rs 18 lakh range. The car will be on display at the 2016 Auto Expo.
