The Tiguan is Volkswagen’s most popular SUV and it now gets a mid-cycle update to modernise its looks. It gets new bumpers front and back, new LED headlight units and a slightly larger grille. It’s not a radical change, but we like what we see! Inside, the international version gets a lot of customization options for trim materials. It also features a digital cockpit, Volkswagen’s latest MIB3 infotainment system, 15-colour ambient lighting system and a 480-watt Fender audio system. Alongside the regular Tiguan, Volkswagen also unveiled the sportier, top-spec R-Line version. This version features a wider rubber and a quad-tip Akrapovic exhaust system. Power for the regular Tiguan comes from a 184 bhp, 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine.
Volkswagen replaced the 5-seater Tiguan with the 7-seat Tiguan All-Space in India, but we think there’s space in the line-up for this model still. We’re not sure if it’ll make it here anytime soon, but if it does, expect it to be powered by a 1.5-litre, 150 bhp petrol engine from VWs TSI family of engines.
