The launch of Volkswagen's SUV, Tiguan, in India may still be a couple of months away. But the production is progressing rapidly at the company's Aurangabad facility in Maharashtra, attested by the latest set of images surfaced online.
The Tiguan has been snapped once again. Volkswagen begun the production of the upcoming SUV at its local plant in India in March and the launch of the Tiguan is expected around July this year.
From the images, the cabin of the Tiguan gets an all-black colour theme with piano black inserts on the dashboard and centre console and the same has also been extended to the three-spoke steering wheel of the SUV. The Tiguan will be offered in five-seater configuration with features such as touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control and twin-pod instrument cluster with MID display.
On the exterior, the Tiguan, the model based on the MQB platform of the VW group sports wide grille with chrome toppings, LED DRLs and new front and rear bumpers. In India, the new Tiguan is expected to be offered in Comfortline and Highline variants.
Under the hood, the Tiguan is expected to pack a 2.0L TDI engine mated to a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox. The SUV is likely to generate 148bhp and 340Nm of torque and is expected to be offered in both 2-wheel drive and all-wheel drive options.
The bookings for Tiguan are open in the country for a down-payment of Rs. 1 lakh. Once the SUV hits the market, it will square off against Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner, Chevrolet Trailblazer and the upcoming Skoda Kodiaq.
