We are certain the enhanced Tiguan will attract many more Indian customers to the Volkswagen family enabling them to experience & enjoy our flagship model.”
On the exteriors, Volkswagen Tiguan sports a muscular designed bumper with piano black finish inserts, along with a broad radiator grille that envelopes the Volkswagen logo right in the centre. Enhancing its appeal is the intelligent and adaptive IQ. Lights - LED matrix headlights.
Complementing this is the dark LED combination tail lamps at the rear, with the new light signatures that emanate sophistication.
