Volkswagen Tiguan receives ₹47,000 price increase: Check details
Delhi : The cost of the Tiguan full-size SUV in India has been covertly increased by Volkswagen India. Priced at R 35.17 lakh (ex-showroom) for the sole variant sold, the Volkswagen Tiguan has increased in price by 47,000 since it was last updated. The organization's website displays the revised pricing. In its sector, where it competes with the Hyundai Tucson, Jeep Meridian, Toyota Fortuner, and Citroen C5 Aircross, the Tiguan continues to be one of the most capable gasoline SUVs on the market.
For the Volkswagen Tiguan, the price increase has no effect. The SUV's trusted 2.0-liter petrol turbocharged TSI engine is tweaked for 187 horsepower and 320 Nm of maximum torque. The powerplant only has a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission, which uses AWD to distribute power to all four wheels.
In India, the Tiguan's most recent upgrade was just released in May of this year. The MY2023 model debuted with additional capabilities and aesthetic improvements. This included wireless charging, updated dual-tone Storm Grey interiors, and Park Assist. To comply with BS6 Phase 2 standards, the engine was modified. Six airbags, ABS with ESC, anti-slip regulation, EDL, Hill-Hold, Hill Descent Control, TPMS, three-point seatbelts for all five passengers, and a host of other safety features are all crammed into the SUV.
Currently, there are five color choices for the Volkswagen Tiguan: Tungsten Silver, Atlantic Blue, Indium Grey, Deep Black, and Oryx White. The SUV claims to have a 13.54 km/l (ARAI approved) fuel efficiency rating, which is a 7% improvement over the previous model.
Due to Volkswagen's plans to release the following generation Tiguan later this year, the current generation Tiguan has reached the end of its useful life. The redesigned MQB Evo architecture that will underpin the company's next-generation Tiguan has previously been hinted at. Additionally, a plug-in hybrid version with a 120 km pure-electric range will be available. In the first quarter of 2024, the new generation Tiguan will begin selling in Europe, and it's possible that it will also soon be available in India.
