Volkswagen Passenger Cars India began production of the 2022 Tiguan at its Aurangabad plant in Maharashtra just a while ago and the SUV is making its official market debut tomorrow. The updated Tiguan will join the Taigun midsize SUV in the brand’s local lineup as the seven-seater Tiguan Allspace has been discontinued to make way for it.

The five-seater SUV comes with a host of notable revisions compared to the old model. It will lock horns with Jeep Compass, Citroen C5 Aircross and Hyundai Tucson and is expected to be priced between Rs. 25 lakh and Rs. 29 lakh (ex-showroom). The five-seater premium SUV derives power from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder TSI petrol engine.

The powertrain is good enough to generate a maximum power output of 190 PS and 320 Nm of peak torque and is linked with a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission. It transfers power to all four wheels through the 4×4 system. Compared to the old 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine, the new motor is more powerful as it kicked out only 143 PS.
