05 Jun 2017 / 0

Volkswagen recently launched the Tiguan in India at Rs 27.68 lakh, ex-Mumbai. It is the first vehicles to be based on the brand’s MQB platform, and gets a full revamp. The Volkswagen Tiguan is available in India in two variants, Comfortline and Highline, with just one engine option – a 2.0-litre TDI producing 143PS and 340Nm, with a 7-speed DSG. Both variants come with all-wheel drive as standard, but the top-spec Highline trim is priced at Rs 31.04 lakh. We’re out driving the car today, and we’ll have our first drive review up very soon. In the meantime, here’s a thorough look at the car in images:
