The Astor facelift is likely to retain its existing 1.3-litre turbo petrol and 1.5-litre normal petrol engines. As for the ZS EV facelift, having been launched in 2022, a facelift might not be imminent in India.

Volkswagen introduced the Taigun C-segment SUV in India in 2021. In 2023, the company unveiled the new T-Cross SUV, closely related to the Taigun, for global markets. Given the intensifying competition in the C-SUV segment, Volkswagen could consider a mild facelift for the Taigun, drawing inspiration from the new design of the T-Cross. Although engine and transmission options are likely to remain the same as the current model, the Taigun facelift could incorporate additional features, including Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), to compete with the recently-launched Hyundai Creta facelift.
