For those who don’t remember, the pre-facelift Volkswagen Tiguan was sold in India until April 2020 when it was replaced by the seven-seater Tiguan AllSpace. While premium, the model did well for Volkswagen India during its three-year run here but was only offered with the 2.0-litre diesel engine. The version being reintroduced here is the petrol derivative powered by the 2.0-litre TSI turbo petrol from the AllSpace. The motor powers a number of VW and Skoda cars in India and produces 190PS and 320Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired to the 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox with paddle shifters. VW is offering AWD with the Tiguan facelift.

The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan facelift will be locally assembled at a later stage, for now, it should be an import. The premium mid-size SUV segment is gaining traction and the Tiguan facelift will have rivals like the Jeep Compass facelift, Hyundai Tucson and the newly launched Citroen C5 AirCross to compete against. A cousin of this as Skoda derivative is still not spoken about, which is the Skoda Kamiq.

2021 Volkswagen Tiguan Facelift India Launch price Rs 31.99 lakhs, which is slightly on the higher side. Now, where is the Jetta, VW? Get us the Arteon at least, please! Or maybe, the full-blown Atlas please?
