Under the SUVW strategy, Volkswagen plans to allocate another batch of the Tiguan Allspace and T-Roc SUVs for the Indian market. Volkswagen brings both the Tiguan Allspace and the Volkswagen T-Roc to the Indian soil via the CBU (Completely Built-Up) route, under the 2,500 homologation-free rule.

The SUVs are now getting ready for round two in the 2021 avatar and we have a few pictures that reveal the exteriors of the Tiguan Allspace and T-Roc SUV.
