New Delhi: This news can be of use to those people who are planning to buy an SUV in the coming days. Actually, the production of German automobile company Volkswagen's upcoming SUV Tiguan has started.
The company has issued a statement on Thursday, informing that Tiguan will fulfill the company's announcement of launching four new SUVW in India by 2021. Volkswagen can officially launch this car on December 7.

The updated Tiguan made its global debut in 2020, the entry of this car in India is being seen as a major step by Volkswagen to make more market penetration, especially after the launch of compact SUV Taigun, which was launched did not get good response.

Once launched in the market, the Tiguan can compete with the Hyundai Tucson, Jeep Compass and the Citron C5 Aircross.
