      Volkswagen India to launch Tiguan in 2017

      It seems that the rivalry in the compact Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) segment of the Indian car market is getting more intense day by day. Seeing the growth in this segment, several auto makers have started launching their new models, loaded with a number of advanced features to lure the Indian buyers. Some of the most prominent compact SUVs in India are Renault Duster, Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, Mahindra Quanto and the recently launched Ford EcoSport. In addition, Japanese car maker Nissan is also planning to introduce its own compact SUV, Terrano, which will be the last product of the badge engineering between Nissan and Renault. And if reports are to be believed, German car maker Volkswagen is also slated to enter the segment by 2016 with the introduction of its compact crossover called the Taigun.

      This is why I hate the Media in INdia .. they cant be BOTHERED to spend any kind of time making sure their info is accurate.

      The photograph above is of the 2009/10 VW Tiguan. (There has already been one revision since and the current generation looks different!) This is a 46+ lac car in India.

      The TAIGUN looks like this

      It was reported that the company quashed the previous compact SUV concept, Taigun, for production. The new SUV essentially is a replacement for Taigun.

      German car maker Volkswagen has been working on a new compact SUV based on the Polo hatchback for quite some time. The new compact SUV is expected to enter the market in 2018. Emerging reports say that the company will locally manufacture this SUV in India.

      The design of the compact SUV will be extracted from the T-Cross Breeze concept that Volkswagen unveiled at the 86th Geneva Motor Show in March. What Volkswagen claims is that the new compact SUV is the beginning of a broad SUV offensive and perfectly suited for everyday use. VW says that the compact SUV's cabin will be similar to the BUDD-e concept, which means the number of buttons and knobs inside the cabin will be minimal.

      It sits above Skoda Yati in terms of pricing in Europe, that means 20L+ a direct competition is Tuscon, and upcoming jeep in India.
