Volkswagen is gearing up to soon launch the new facelifted five-seater Tiguan SUV in the Indian market. The new Volkswagen Tiguan Facelift made its global debut in March this year and now, under the company’s SUVW strategy, it will finally make its way to India. This German car manufacturer’s Indian subsidiary has even announced the launch date for the same. The India launch of the new Volkswagen Tiguan Facelift has been scheduled for December 7, 2021.
Volkswagen Tiguan Facelift will slot between the recently-launched Taigun SUV and the seven-seater Tiguan Allspace in the company’s India line-up. Talking about changes, it will feature a host of cosmetic updates along with a new powertrain. While the pre-facelift Tiguan that was launched in India back in 2017 had a diesel engine only, the upcoming facelift version of the SUV will be available with only a BS6 compliant turbocharged petrol engine, just like all other Volkswagen Group cars now on sale in the Indian market.
