Volkswagen starts delivering 2021 Tiguan SUV in India
German automaker Volkswagen has started deliveries of its Tiguan SUV in India. To recall, it was launched here last month in a single, fully-loaded variant. As for the highlights, the four-wheeler bears an elegant look and has a spacious cabin loaded with tech-based features. It is powered by a 2.0-liter TSI petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 187hp.
- The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan sports minor cosmetic changes in comparison to the pre-facelift model but misses out on a diesel mill.
- The SUV has been priced competitively on our shores and raises the competition in the market to a great extent.
- The vehicle takes on rivals such as the Citroen C5 Aircross and Toyota Fortuner.
The Volkswagen Tiguan has a chrome-finished grille, a wide air vent, a muscular hood, and narrow LED headlamps with DRLs. On the sides, it is flanked by roof rails, indicator-mounted ORVMs, flared wheel arches, and alloy wheels. A shark-fin antenna, wrap-around LED taillamps, and a window wiper grace the rear end. Dimensions-wise, it is 4,509mm long and has a wheelbase of 2,679mm.
The new Volkswagen Tiguan is fueled by a BS6-compliant 2.0-liter TSI petrol engine that churns out a maximum power of 187hp and a peak torque of 320Nm. The motor is mated to a 7-speed DSG gearbox.
The Volkswagen Tiguan has a 5-seater cabin with a panoramic sunroof, wireless charging, ambient lighting, a flat-bottom multifunctional steering wheel, and a 3-zone climate control system. Six airbags, ABS, an engine immobilizer, crash sensors, and a rear-view camera ensure the safety of the passengers. It also houses an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
In India, the facelifted Volkswagen Tiguan SUV sports a price-figure of Rs. 31.99 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). The vehicle is sold out for the first quarter of this year and deliveries are currently underway.
