Volkswagen India with its empty basket in the line of SUVs and crossovers had instantly said to a source to soon fill the gap with models from across the world. It sounds exciting for both – buyers and seller. After all, VW delivered the German promise of quality, but the lack of products in the portfolio crunched it hard to push forth the limits.
As confirmed by statistical data, SUV segment is growing rapidly across the world, and in India. On a competitive side, the other makers like Honda, Hyundai, Toyota and Tata Motors too are shifting their focus on this segment, so VW couldn’t cost to miss out cashing this very engaging opportunity in this market.
Seems from the past, VW hadn’t believed in the sub-4 metre concept of Indian norms of attaining tax benefit, where the lack of a hatchback-based sedan is a straight answer. Here, with the SUVs, it too aims to strike the chord with the likes of Renault Duster and Mahindra XUV500, leaving the Ford EcoSport out of question.
The new Tiguan that will get revealed by the coming year in international market is also speculated for India with a 2.0-litre diesel engine.
