The Tiguan is one of the three new car launches planned for India with the other two being the Volkswagen Ameo compact sedan and the new Passat.

The Tiguan is the first SUV from the VW Group to be based on its flexible MQB platform that also underpins the new Passat and Skoda Octavia. The Tiguan will come to India in 2017 and is likely to be assembled at the VW Group plant in Aurangabad.

Now spotted at the dealer's stockyard in Bangalore.

Re: Volkswagen To Launch Tiguan in 2017

Spotted VW Tiguan while going towards Lonavala yesterday at around 6:00 pm. It was completely undisguised white colour. Was unable to catch it at it went past 140 kmph. Apologize for bad quality pics.

Thank you for the NCAP safety video of the Tiguan. I'm waiting for the day when our own mfrs offer their cars for such comprehensive tests and emerge with similar results.
Now, if only VW nails the prices sensibly....

I just read in another report (Motorbeam) that the expected pricing would be in the 32-36 lakhs bracket. Which would put it in the silly range & result in similar sales.

Re: Volkswagen To Launch Tiguan in 2017

Hi,

I was really excited for this car but with the GST coming in from july and taxes getting lower on bigger cars I wonder whether it would make more sense to wait before buying.

I feel either VW clarifies its Pre & POST GST prices at launch or there would be no other option than to wait till july.

Any doubt regarding prices will lead to loss in initial sales and loss to "New" factor in minds of buyers.

By pricing it within the range of choices like Tucson, MUX, Endeavour, Fortuner, BMW X1, Mercedes GLA, Santa Fe etc. (also the upcoming Jeep Compass), it seems to me that VW has made it really hard for the Tiguan to hold its ground

The new Tiguan is available for test drives and bookings at all Volkswagen dealerships across India

Mumbai: Volkswagen, Europe's leading car manufacturer, today announces the launch of the much awaited premium carline, based on the modern MQB platform, the Volkswagen Tiguan. Powered with an efficient 2.0L TDI engine mated to a supple 7 speed automatic-DSG gearbox, the Tiguan delivers peak power of 143 PS/105 kW and 340 Nm of torque ranging from 1750-2750 rpm with superior fuel efficiency of 17.06 kmpl (ARAI tested). The Tiguan is packed with distinctive characteristics that are unmatched in the Indian market. Starting at INR 27.68 Lacs (ex-showroom Mumbai)* the Tiguan is available across all Volkswagen showrooms for test drives and bookings.

First introduced in the year 2007, in Europe, the Volkswagen Tiguan quickly established itself as a bestseller and also claimed the position of being Europe's safest car. Available in 150 markets with more than 3.5 million owners around the world, the Volkswagen Tiguan has acquired a leading position ever since its introduction globally and now Volkswagen brings the best of its product portfolio to India. The latest generation Tiguan will host several class leading premium lifestyle features like Pedestrian Safety (Active Hood), 6 Airbags, Hill Start Assist, Auto Hold, Self-sealing tyres, 'Vienna' leather seats, Cruise Control, AppConnect, Rain and Light sensor, LED Headlamps with DRLs, LED tail-lamps, Easy open boot, Electrically foldable ORVM, LED illuminated Panoramic Sunroof and Keyless Entry & Go among others.

Launching the Tiguan, Mr. Thierry Lespiaucq, Managing Director, Volkswagen Group Sales India Pvt. Ltd. said, "The Tiguan has proven its mettle as a robust and capable carline world over and we are delighted to introduce our global best-seller in the Indian market. Be it daily commute or a meticulous off-road adventure, the Tiguan is a perfect companion, packed with the right amount of power, design and exceptional driving capabilities.

Powered with superior capabilities

Featuring the 4MOTION intelligent all-wheel drive system with variable torque transfer to the rear wheels, the Tiguan guarantees superior acceleration capability and tremendous driving fun in every situation and on every type of driving surface. The carline impresses with its strong characteristics and elegant design that radiates power and authority. Built on Volkswagen's modular transverse matrix (MQB) platform that makes the vehicles lighter, more efficient, spacious, safe and comfortable with a more dynamic drive system and appearance, the Tiguan as a result draws an unmistakeable stance with distinctive proportions and a very dynamic design.

Safety is priority

Intrinsic to our DNA, the Tiguan integrates innovative safety technologies and assistance systems as standard. The carline is equipped with 6 airbags for occupant's protection and an ACTIVE HOOD for pedestrian safety. For added pedestrian protection, the Tiguan is built with special deformation elements in the front bumper, a maximum possible distance between bonnet and engine, and deformable wings, ensuring other road users and pedestrians are exposed to as little danger as possible.

Designed to perfection

Winner of the German Design Award 2017, the design of the Tiguan emphasises independence and dynamism. With the introduction of the Tiguan in India, Volkswagen has brought in new design characteristics in the premium lifestyle segment, combining striking proportions with sophistication and on-road presence. This proactive attitude is systematically observed in details such as the horizontally aligned unit formed by the radiator grille and headlights, and the higher waist line, resulting in a confident on-road stance.

Fuel Efficient Engine

Fuel efficiency being the major driver in India, the Tiguan is equipped with the powerful and efficient 2.0L TDI engine mated to a 7 speed automatic DSG transmission that offers superior fuel efficiency of 17.06 kmpl (ARAI tested) and a fuel tank that offers a capacity of 71 litres. The engine delivers peak power of 143 PS/ 105 kW and guarantees sheer adrenaline rush for the occupants.

Refined comfort with every touch

The Tiguan combines excellent space and flexibility with superb comfort under all road conditions. The dashboard is the epitome of aesthetic and functional design, with driver assist technologies that make every drive, pleasurable. The 3-zone auto-climate control system including Air Care Climatronic with an allergen filter delivers precise multi-zone temperature control at all seats. A spacious interior along with a significant gain in boot space that offers 615 litres with all seats up, 1655 litres with rear-seat folded. The Tiguan is perfect and practical in all situations and across different terrains.

No doubt Tiguan is a good car, but with the current pricing, VW has killed it. With Tuscon already in market at much lower price, I don think any perspective buyer will look for this car.
It is in range of MU-X, I highly doubt success of this car with this pricing. Believe another Yeti for VW group.


Cheers !!

I too was thinking the same and the price difference between tuscon top end diesel automatic and tiguan comfortline diesel is 3 lakh rupèes. If you compare the features tiguan has a little more but most of the features are present in the tuscon Don't forget tiguan comfortline is 4×4 with different driving modes, paddle shifter, auto hold , heated seats which are a waste in indian climate , heat insulated glasses all around and tyre pressure monitoring system. even without checking the car i can say the build quality will be much better than the tuscon.
