Here is the complete list of upcoming new Volkswagen cars in India in the next 2 years.
After completing a decade in the Indian market, German conglomerate Volkswagen plans on bringing affordably priced premium products in a bid to expand its market share in the domestic market. To achieve this, VW eyes aggressive localisation for its future models. Determined to strengthen its hold on the Indian market, Volkswagen has lined-up new models that are expected to be more feature rich and affordable. Here is a look at the upcoming Volkswagen cars in India that are slated to launch in the next two years.
German premium carmaker, Volkswagen is working on a special edition Ameo compact sedan. Likely to be called VW Ameo Sport, the model is likely to receive similar cosmetic updates as the Polo GT Sport. This new special edition model will get black decals on the sides, a blacked-out roof, a black lip spoiler and a black treatment on the boot lid. The vehicle also gets blacked-out alloy wheels and black outside rear view mirrors.
The Ameo Sport is expected to be offered on both petrol and diesel guise. It will be powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine that produces 74bhp and 110Nm of torque. The diesel version will get the 1.5-litre diesel unit that is capable of churning out 108bhp and 250Nm of torque. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG automatic unit (Diesel Only).
Expected Launch- 2018

The German automaker is also considering a seven-seater version of the Tiguan premium SUV for the Indian market. The company is currently working on the seven-seater model, which is likely to make global debut towards the end of this year. In order to add an extra seat, Volkswagen will increase the wheelbase and length of the car. Like the regular model, the new model will be brought into India as CKD and then assembled at VW’s local manufacturing unit in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. The company had unveiled the VW Tiguan AllSpace concept at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, and the same model is expected to be launched in India.
The Tiguan Allspace comes with additional 115-litres of boot space as it is 215mm longer than the standard Tiguan. In fact, the wheelbase has been increased by 110mm. The SUV looks largely similar to the five seater model, except for the few upgrades to the bonnet and the front grille. The SUV will be powered by the same 2.0-litre TDI engine that powers the regular model. Paired to a 7-speed DSG automatic unit, this engine is good for 143bhp and 340Nm of torque.
Expected Launch-April or May 2018
Expected Price-Rs 30 lakh to Rs 35 lakh
