Volkswagen’s mini SUV, the Tiguan model, will get a facelift for the Chinese auto market.
Considering the success of the Tiguan in China, Volkswagen has decided it is time for a facelift. With the car becoming more and more popular even though some dealers increased the pricing, the Tiguan will also get a new engine.
Being imported from Germany and then produced on the local market without the more offroad friendly front bumper, the Tiguan made in China was left aside and the imported version was preferred by customers, which made VW consider adding the bumper to the local model.
Besides the new offroad friendly front bumper, the Chinese Tiguan will also get a 1.4 liter petrol TSI engine, which is powering the Golf, Bora and Lavida models, along with the more powerful 1.8 liter TSI and 2.0 liter TSI versions currently available.
The 1.4 liter TSI engine will drop the price on the Chinese Tiguan and the entry-level is expected to start at 200.000 rmb or around 20.000 euro.
