The new Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace was launched in India in March 2020 at Rs 33.12 lakh, ex-showroom. It was brought to the Indian shores as a CBU (completely built unit) in very limited numbers. That’s because the companies are now allowed to import up to 2,500 CBU vehicles a year without any homologation process. But, since Skoda, Volkswagen and Audi are a part of the same parent company (Volkswagen Group), they have to share this 2,500-unit allocation among themselves. 

Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace was bigger and more spacious than the standard Tiguan. It also had the same powertrain that will be offered with the upcoming five-seater Tiguan SUV. The soon-to-be-launched Volkswagen Tiguan Facelift will be powered by a 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine with a direct injection system. This turbo petrol motor will churn out 187 hp of power and 320 Nm of peak torque. The engine will be paired with a 7-speed DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) and it will get VW’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system too.

Once launched, the Volkswagen Tiguan Facelift will directly rival the likes of the Hyundai Tucson and the Jeep Compass.
