Volkswagen has unveiled initial information and images of the third-generation Tiguan SUV, set to debut globally in the coming months and arrive in European markets by early 2024. The current model of the Tiguan is already being sold in India. The new Tiguan features a more rounded and less boxy design, with a length increase of 32mm (now 4,551mm) and a height increase of 5mm (now 1,640mm). However, it maintains the same 2,681mm wheelbase.
Volkswagen claims the new Tiguan will offer improved practicality, including an additional 33 liters of cargo space and increased headroom and legroom for both front and rear passengers. Higher-end variants will feature ventilated and massaging seats. The SUV will come equipped with an HD Matrix headlight system, similar to the one found in the updated Touareg, providing enhanced illumination up to 500 meters. Additionally, a full-width LED lightbar at the rear, a signature design element of VW’s SUVs, is expected to be present.
Although there are no clear images of the interior, teaser images suggest the presence of a large touchscreen resembling the one found in the recently revealed VW ID.7 electric sedan, potentially measuring 15 inches. The new Tiguan will also offer a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a new windscreen head-up display, replacing the outgoing Tiguan’s pop-out HUD setup.
Specific details about the powertrain options for the next-generation Tiguan are currently limited. However, it is anticipated that a range of petrol, petrol plug-in hybrid, and diesel engines will be available, varying by market. Both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive configurations will be offered, as in previous models.
