The current Volkswagen Tiguan was presented in September 2015, which means that the model is almost eight years old. Volkswagen is certainly not doing bad business with the Tiguan, so a successor will be coming soon. We have already been able to show you the new Volkswagen Tiguan in test suit several times and now Volkswagen is showing the SUV itself, this time wrapped in a print that makes many a QR code uncertain.
According to new information released by Volkswagen, the Tiguan will retain its wheelbase of 2.68 meters. The SUV does grow in length by 3.2 centimeters to 4.55 meters. In addition, the Tiguan is 0.5 centimeters higher than the current model. Although the new Tiguan is hardly larger than the model you already know, the luggage space is considerably larger. With a capacity of 648 liters, you can store a lot of stuff. You have about an inch more headroom in both the front and the back.
The new Tiguan has a significantly rounder design than the second generation of the SUV, which means that some design influences from Volkswagen’s ID world seem to seep through to the Tiguan. The SUV gets HD Matrix LED headlights and an LED bar running across the entire width of the bottom. The new Tiguan gets a 15-inch infotainment screen, although lower-positioned versions get a copy with a diagonal of 12.9 inches. Striking: just with the electric ID models, the selector lever moves from the automatic transmission to the steering column. Good news for those who get it back and forth from touch-sensitive buttons: Volkswagen is bringing back the physical buttons. At least you can see them on the steering wheel.
According to Volkswagen, there will in any case be a plug-in hybrid with an electric range of up to 100 kilometers. All plug-ins must be able to charge AC faster than the current models.
Volkswagen is not yet saying anything about the powertrains of the new Tiguan, but we assume one or more plug-in hybrid eHybrid power sources. The new Volkswagen Tiguan will see the light of day this year and will be on the market in early 2024.
