The VW Tiguan buyers will get to choose between Comfortline and Highline trim levels. Panoramic sunroof, LED headlights, virtual release pedal, faux leather upholstery and 18-inch wheels are the features revealed so far. The report says that the Highline trim level will get the 18-inch wheels, while the Comfortline trim level will likely settle for 17-inch wheels.

Volkswagen India will offer the VW Tiguan in only one engine model. Under the hood, rests the 2.0-litre TDI turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine that is linked to the 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission. An all-wheel drive system is included in the specification list. India gets only the standard-wheelbase version with a 5-seat seating configuration.
