2021 Volkswagen Tiguan facelift for India revealed

The 5-seater Tiguan SUV makes its comeback to the Indian market with the new BS6 complaint 2.0 TSI petrol engine

Volkswagen India has revealed the Tiguan facelift which will soon go on sale in India. The Tiguan is returning to the Indian market after a year as it was discontinued for the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace. The 2021 VW Tiguan receives cosmetic updates and feature enhancements over the previous model, along with a new BS6 complaint 2.0 TSI petrol engine. Along with Tiguan, the German carmaker also unveiled the Taigun yesterday.

The new Volkswagen Tiguan gets 18-inch alloy wheels and smaller rear which sets it apart from previous model.

The Tiguan’s bold, airy, semi-boxy, straight-line design is a derivative of the model that was offered for sale before the BS6 emission standards came into effect. However, the headlight design is a sharper, eye-shaped design and it also features new LED matrix units. The grille has also been modified. The front bumper has triangular fog light clusters and air intakes, helping to provide a certain level of distinction between the Tiguan car and its seven-seater counterpart, the Tiguan Allspace.

When viewed from the rear, the Volkswagen Tiguan looks almost similar to the Allspace, but from the side, a new 18-inch alloy wheel design and a smaller rear overhang set the car apart from the 5-seater.

Tiguan features include an electric panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, leather seats, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, connected car technology, three-zone climate control, eight-position electric connector, and more safety features such as six airbags, ESP, ABS, Hill Start, and Descent Assist, tyre pressure monitoring, ISOFIX anchors, and a standard driver alert system.
