Thank you to BHPian RavenAvi for sharing these images with other enthusiasts!

Ahead of its official launch in the country, the Volkswagen Tiguan has been spotted at Skoda's manufacturing plant in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. The set of images also offer a clearer look at the SUV's dashboard layout.

The Tiguan is built on Volkswagen's MQB platform. The company claims to have made a weight saving of 50 kg, as compared to the previous-gen model. The front fascia adorns a wide grille with chrome inserts. These chrome inserts extend on to the headlight assemblies on each end, which come with LED illumination and DRLs. The new set of images show two variants of the Tiguan, as one of them gets a chrome line on the front bumper, while the other doesn't. The two variants will likely be named as Comfortline and Highline.

The interiors of the upcoming Tiguan have also been revealed through the new set of spy shots. Volkswagen will be offering the Tiguan as a 5-seater. The cabin gets an all-black treatment, while the centre console houses a touchscreen infotainment system and automatic climate control console. Piano black inserts have been added on the dashboard, centre console and the three-spoke, flat-bottom steering wheel. The instrument cluster gets a twin-pod layout, with the MID screen in the centre.

Powering the India-spec Tiguan will be a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder TDI diesel engine that churns out 147 BHP. Transmission duties will be handled by a 7-speed DSG gearbox.
