Posted on: Sep 4, 2014 - 11:13am IST

Available with two engine choices.

The VW Tiguan, one of the world’s best selling SUVs, is being showcased at the 2014 Nepal Auto Show (NADA 2014) by Pooja International, the authorized importer of VW cars in Nepal. The car has been on the market for a few years, but is very much worth featuring considering the craze for small crossovers in India.

    Hi,
    Can you confirm the pricing. Doesn’t look like a 45 – 60 lac INR SUV. Thanks.

    1. Hello, the prices are right, thanks to a high import duty, they appear disproportionate. The complete VW family Nepal price list can be seen here, I’ve uploaded this for you – http://i58.tinypic.com/nb4wf9.jpg
