Volkswagen has announced that it will be launching the Tiguan SUV in India on December 7. Teh car will enter the company’s portfolio alongside the smaller Taigun and the 7-seater Tiguan AllSpace.

The car will get Skoda’s Matrix LED lighting as well.

Upfront, the car gets tweaked grille while the front number now gets triangular-shaped fog light clusters and slated air intakes. The car sits on a set of 18-inch alloy wheels. At the rear, there is a re-profiled bumper, new LED elements in the tail-lights and Tiguan.

The Tiguan is also expected to get Volkswagen’s new steering as seen on the Taigun, replete with the brand’s new logo.
