The Volkswagen Tiguan is all set to make a comeback in India under the brand’s Project 2.0. It will be available alongside its elder sibling, the Allspace and is expected to be launched sometime later in 2021. The official images of the Tiguan have been revealed by the German automaker.
It will be built on the same MQB platform and the biggest update to the Tiguan will be a new face that it has got courtesy of the matrix LED headlamps and DRLs, redesigned bumper, new grille and fog lamps. VW has now upsized the wheels for the Tiguan to 18-inch ones and that too with a new design. The tail lights will also feature a new design.
The interior design of the Tiguan in terms of layout and overall features remains unchanged but you now get features like ambient lighting with 30 shades, memory function for the driver’s seat, new leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, chrome trims and illuminated scuff plates. Standard features that have been carried over include three-zone climate control, touchscreen infotainment system Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, VW virtual cockpit and connected car technology. All versions of the car are expected to get six airbags, ESP, hill start and descent control, TPMS, ISOFIX child seat anchorage points, driver alert system, and an auto-hold function.
Under the hood, Volkswagen will swap the diesel powertrain with a 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine making 184bhp and 300Nm of torque coupled with paddle shifters and a seven-speed DSG and VW’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive setup.
