Volkswagen India is all set to launch the facelifted Tiguan in the country tomorrow. The model was previously discontinued with the BS4 emission norms coming into effect from April 2020. The updated version of the SUV was officially revealed in July last year.
The biggest change to the Volkswagen Tiguan facelift will lie under its hood. The 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine in the outgoing model will make way for the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder TSI petrol engine that produces 187bhp and 320Nm of torque. This motor will be paired to an eight-speed DSG automatic transmission sending power to all four wheels via the brand’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.
On the outside, the fascia of the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan gets a revision in the form of a new set of headlamps with twin L-shaped LED DRLs and dual-pod projector units, a refreshed bumper with larger air intakes, and a new two-slat chrome grille. The rear profile of the model benefits from a set of tweaked LED tail lights, Tiguan lettering on the bootlid, and a reworked bumper, while the design highlights on either side are limited to a set of new alloy wheels.
The interior of the international-spec Volkswagen Tiguan facelift features a fully-digital instrument console, wireless charging, Vienna leather upholstery, and a new touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A few other notable features include a panoramic sunroof, three-zone climate control, ambient lighting, and a flat-bottom steering wheel.
