The all-new Volkswagen Tiguan has been spotted testing, and it’ll be the third generation of VW’s mid-sized SUV.
This alternative to the Kia Sportage and Nissan Qashqai gets fresh styling details, as well as an updated cabin and likely engine upgrades.
New Volkswagen Tiguan design
At first glance, this lightly-camouflaged new Volkswagen Tiguan doesn’t look that different from the current car. But, look closer and you’ll spot a few differences.
The grille is quite a bit wider and slimmer than before and the LED headlights look more swept-back. Don’t take too much notice of their appearance here though – the shape has been modified using stickers to disguise the finished design underneath.
There isn’t much to report down the sides of the car. The small alloy wheels are just for testing and won’t make production and the door mirrors appear to have been taken from the Volkswagen ID4.
The rear lights also look sleeker than before, although they have also been disguised to look like the current Tiguan’s.
The overall rear shape is pretty similar to before as well, although there is a larger rear spoiler fitted above the boot lid.
New Volkswagen Tiguan interior
No images have surfaced of the new Volkswagen Tiguan’s cabin, but you can expect it to get the same 12.0-inch infotainment system as the recently updated Volkswagen ID3 as well as a similar minimalist design to the latest Volkswagen Golf.
New Volkswagen Tiguan engines
Nothing has been confirmed engine-wise for the new Volkswagen Tiguan yet, however you won’t see an all-electric version of this SUV. If you’re looking for a fully electric Volkswagen, you’ll have to check out the ID4 and ID5.
What you’re more likely to see is a range of petrol and plug-in hybrid engines, similar to what’s offered at the moment. That means you’ll probably get to pick from 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engines and a 1.4-litre plug-in hybrid with 28 miles of electric-only range.
Volkswagen may drop the 2.0-litre diesel engines from the lineup, and the remaining petrol engines are expected to get mild-hybrid systems for improved fuel economy and reduced emissions.
New Volkswagen Tiguan price and release date
You can expect to see an official reveal of this new Volkswagen Tiguan towards the end of 2023. The finished car will likely go on sale in early 2024.
As for price, it’ll almost certainly cost more than today’s Tiguan. That car costs from £29,910.
