2021 Volkswagen Tiguan facelift launched in India, prices start from Rs 31.99 lakh
Volkswagen India has launched the facelifted Volkswagen Tiguan in the country with prices starting at Rs 31.99 lakh for the Elegance variant. The Tiguan returns to the Volkswagen fold after its diesel-only pre-facelift avatar was discontinued after the BS6 switchover and replaces both the T-Roc and the Tiguan AllSpace for the time being.
Bookings for the new Tiguan are now open with deliveries beginning in mid-January. Test Drives are available in major metros.
2021 Volkswagen Tiguan facelift exterior
The new Tiguan's front end has been restyled to bring it in line with other SUVs in the VW line-up, such as the Touareg and the US-market Atlas Cross. This is seen with the wider, horizontally slatted grille and the more swept-back LED headlamps reminiscent of the latest Golf. The bonnet too has a more contoured look. At the rear, there is a mildly restyled bumper and new details for the LED tail lamps while the Tiguan lettering is now centred below the logo. A more aggressively styled R-Line variant is available internationally with the facelifted Volkswagen Tiguan but there is no confirmation on that version coming to India.
