2021 Volkswagen Tiguan Facelift India Launch Live Updates: Price, Features, Specifications, Images
The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan facelift is all set to go on sale in India today, and we’ll be bringing you all the live updates here. The updated model is the 5-seater version of the SUV, which was on sale in India until the launch of the 7-seater Tiguan Allspace, in early 2020. Now the 5-seater version has returned with a mid-life facelift, which includes cosmetic changes, new and updated features, and a BS6 turbocharged petrol engine. Like its predecessor, the Volkswagen Tiguan facelift comes to India as a CKD (Completely Knocked-Down) model and is assembled at the Skoda Auto Volkswagen India’s Aurangabad facility.
The Volkswagen Tiguan facelift will be powered by a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged engine, tuned to make 187 bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. The engine will come mated to a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission as standard and will be coupled with the 4Motion all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. Upon launch, it will compete with the likes of the Jeep Compass, Hyundai Tucson, and Citroen C5 AirCross.
Built on Volkswagen‘s versatile MQB platform, the 5-seater mid-size SUV comes with updated styling more in line with the brand’s current design language. In terms of features, the SUV gets LED Matrix headlights and LED DRLs, new fog lamps and slimmer LED taillights. Inside, the Tiguan comes equipped with the virtual cockpit, Vienna leather seats, 30 shades of ambient lighting, illuminated scuff plates, expansive panoramic sunroof, and illuminated gear knob. The SUV also gets a new touchscreen infotainment system, featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with a flat-bottom steering wheel, driver-side electric seat with memory function, three-zone climate control, and more.
