Volkswagen currently is struggling with products to offer in India. Now the German manufacturer plans on introducing its Tiguan SUV in the Indian market.
Indians love SUVs and there are quite a few that will be launching within this year itself. Volkswagen India realises that India is a giant market for them and being present is important.
Here are the technical specifications of 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan:
- Engine: 2.0-litre
- Horsepower: 147.88, 187.32 and 236.62 (various options)
- Gearbox: 6-speed manual and DSG optional
Ford and Toyota will also be launching their new products in India. The Endeavour and Fortuner will receive major design updates by the time Volkswagen launch their product.
The Tiguan would most likely be introduced in India as a 7-seater SUV. Volkswagen will provide it as a four wheel drive option only. We are expecting a price tag of INR 20,00,000 to INR 30,00,000 ex-showroom.
Volkswagen India is also planning of introducing a compact sedan in India based on their Polo hatchback. It will be interesting to see pricing the manufacturer achieves with its new products.
