Volkswagen Tiguan 2021 Interior Changes?
Volkswagen India replaced the standard Tiguan with the longer Tiguan AllSpace this year. This car featured three rows of seats and did quite well. However, now Volkswagen may bring the 5-seater 2 row Tiguan to the Indian market to entice new customers at a lower price. Know more about Tiguan Allspace
A new dashboard layout with a larger touchscreen(10.0-inch) infotainment system can be expected. Both Android Auto and Apple Car Play will be supported in the India-spec variant. The car also receives Volkswagen’s WeConnect system. It will rival against Hyundai’s BlueLink, Honda’s Amazon Alexa and others. A sports steering wheel can also be opted for in the new car while a touch-sensitive steering wheel may be standard. The company has included a new 10-speaker Harman Audio system with the Volkswagen Tiguan 2021.
Volkswagen Tiguan 2021 Design Changes?
The Volkswagen Tiguan 2021 looks bolder and beefier than before. Front and Rear bumpers, headlamps have all been redesigned. The ‘Tiguan’ badging has also been relocated to the centre of the tailgate. Chrome bits and pieces are included in the new car and help it to differentiate from its predecessor and competition. The ground clearance looks little low but its enough for the Indian roads.
Volkswagen may not sell the sportier TiguanR in India due to its higher price and emission concerns. The standard Tiguan on the other will definitely be launched with a front-wheel-drive layout only. The car is expected to be assembled at VW’s Chakan plant near Pune. Price of the car may cost somewhere between Rs.23 lakh to Rs.26 lakh. It will compete against the recently launched Skoda Karoq which has an asking price of Rs.25 lakh.
