VW Tiguan Facelift

Volkswagen Tiguan facelift launched in the country in December last year at a price tag of Rs. 31.99 lakh, ex-showroom. However, the company has started delivering the Tiguan facelift to customers from today onwards. The Tiguan facelift is the company’s fourth SUV offering to go on sale in the country in the year 2021 itself, thereby fulfilling the carmaker’s promise of launching four new SUVWs in 2021.

The Tiguan is the company’s global best-seller, and it manages to reiterate the same success story in the Indian market since the SUV is already sold out for Q1, 2022. In the facelifted avatar, Volkswagen has swapped the 2.0L oil burner with a new 2.0L TSI turbo-petrol motor. It is designed to put out a rated power output of 187 Hp and 320 Nm of max torque. Furthermore, the power plant comes mated to a 7-speed DCT unit, while the power is channelled to all four wheels of the SUV via the company’s 4MOTION AWD technology.
