Volkswagen has introduced a new ‘Rising Blue’ color scheme along with the existing Curcuma Yellow and Wild Cherry Red. The company is offering these three shades on the first anniversary edition. The brand has done ‘1st Anniversary’ edition badging on the outside as well as inside of the SUV to show off the anniversary edition.
It also gets special Anniversary Edition exclusive elements like black C-pillar graphics, door-edge protectors and black wing mirrors. The Taigun First Anniversary Edition gets a two-slat chrome grille up front, dual-tone roof, 17-inch alloy wheels and chrome inserts at the bottom of the front and rear bumpers.
Technically speaking, there has been no change in the features and engine of the Tiagon Anniversary Edition. Its 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine produces 115 Bhp and 175 Nm of torque. The SUV is mated to a 6-speed manual or torque converter automatic gearbox with paddle shifters.
The Tiagon 1.0 TSI engine variant was updated in May 2022, adding features like engine idle start/stop and tire pressure monitor as standard equipment. The brand claimed that the engine start/stop has improved the SUV’s mileage by 6 per cent, taking the SUV’s ARAI mileage to 19.20 km/l and 17.23 km/l for the manual and automatic gearbox variants respectively.
Talking about the Volkswagen Tigon, it will take on the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks, MG Aster, Skoda Kushak and the upcoming Toyota Highrider and Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara midsize SUVs in the Indian market.
Let us tell you that recently Volkswagen India has introduced the subscription and lease ownership model for its Volkswagen Virtus sedan.
