The German brand is readying an SUV assault in India. It will begin with the Tiguan Allspace, which will be launched on the 6th of March, 2020. This will be followed by the T-ROC, a premium offering which is expected to occupy space in the INR 20 – 25 lakh space. Both vehicles can be pre-booked now. The “Made for India” Taigun will make its debut in early 2021 and slot itself against the likes of the Creta, Seltos, Harrier, etc. It will be offered with a 1.5-litre TSI motor and a dual-clutch transmission. It won’t be offered with a diesel engine though.
VW’s current portfolio, which includes the Polo and the Vento will now come fitted with 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder TSI engines in the BS6-era. The 1.5-litre diesel won’t be available as an option anymore, along with the 1.2-litre TSI motor. However, the new 3-potter petrol motor makes more power than the outgoing 1.3-litre TSI engine and it will be interesting to see if it retains the same adorable qualities of the outgoing petrol engine. We’ll be back with more updates. Stay tuned.
