This is not a usual thing we get to see, but a 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan was seen at a dealership in Bangalore. Just to add to your knowledge, it is the Tiguan that was earlier showcased  at the Auto Expo 2016 and is the first SUV by Volkswagen to be based on its flexible MQB platform that also underpins the new Passat and Skoda Octavia. The 2016 Tiguan will most likely make its Indian launch in 2017.

Speaking of the exterior, the new Tiguan appears sharp, sporty  with its angular LED headlamps with LED Daytime running lights that directly flows into the grille. As we mentioned earlier that the car is based on MQB platform, it is lighter than the first generation model by 50 kg and measures 4485 mm long, 1839 mm wide, 1633 mm high, and has a wheelbase of 2682 mm.
