It’s raining SUVs in India. Albeit a little late Volkswagen has decided to join the party with the Tiguan. The Tiguan is the first Volkswagen car in India to be based on the much talked about MQB platform from the brand. From the front there are similarities to the brands luxury sedan the Passat. The headlamps with daytime running LEDs merge really well into the chrome grille and it looks like one big attractive unit.

The lines from the bonnet also flow smoothly and merge into the grille. From the profile the matt cladding and the roof rails give the SUV the much needed muscle in the middle of all the sophistication. The car runs on a 2.0 liter Diesel mill 141 bhp of max power and 340 Nm of torque suffice well for the car. Volkswagen is claiming a mileage of 17 kmpl on the SUV. Volkswagen has already officially launched the car at Rs. 27.98 lakh for the Comfortline and Rs. 31.38 lakh for the Highline variant. Shams Naqvi drove the Tigaun from Bangalore to Chikmaglur.
