New VW Tiguan SUV has been photographed without any camouflage in India. The car was on display at the 2016 Auto Expo earlier this year, which is also when it had made its India debut.
Design inspired from VW Cross Blue Concept, the new gen Tiguan is decidedly sharper and more premium than the outgoing model which is rather bland in comparison.
The front facsia would comply with the brand’s latest design theme with narrow chrome grille which seamlessly integrates itself into slender headlamps. In profile, the new SUV gets a clean sheet metal design with a fine waistline, chrome rub strips, blacked out B-pillar and a tapering C-pillar.
The rear fascia sports a well proportioned windshield, two-part angular combination lights that extend from rear fenders all the way up to tailgate, a thin chrome strip on the bumper and a black diffuser with twin circular tailpipes.
Underpinned by MQB platform, 2016 Tiguan would derive a range of TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines from Golf premium hatchback. Both manual and DSG automatic transmissions will be in the offing.
New VW Tiguan is expected to be launched in India next year. Once launched, it will take on the likes of Tata Hexa, Mahindra XUV500, Hyundai Tucson in the SUV segment.
