Volkswagen is going to launch the Tiguan in two variants. Reports suggest that Volkswagen will skip the base Trendline variant of the compact SUV, introducing only the Comfortline and Highline trims in the Indian market.

The Comfortline trim gets 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlamps and DRLs, LED tail lamps. Inside the cabin, creature comforts include heated front seats, cruise control and paddle shifters for the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Safety features like ABS, ESC, six airbags will be offered as standard.

To justify the extra cost, the Highline variant will be equipped with 18-inch alloys, keyless entry, push-button start, panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, illuminated front scuff plates, easy-to-open tailgate with delayed closing function and reverse parking cameras. It even gets self-sealing tyres. While details about the powertrain haven’t been confirmed yet, we expect the Tiguan to be powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, delivering 147bhp.

Initially, the Tiguan was projected to go on sale this month, but now the launch seems to have been pushed to mid-2017. It will be introduced here as a locally assembled model. With a price tag in the range of Rs 30 lakh, the Tiguan will compete against the likes of the Hyundai Tucson and the Honda CR-V.
