The future of the Volkswagen range has been glimpsed in a concept version of the next-generation Tiguan. It was first unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2015 and is now highly anticipated by UK drivers.
This will be the second incarnation of the Tiguan SUV, which sits at the larger end of the new Volkswagen line-up. It has a lower, wider stance than the outgoing model, as well as a longer wheelbase. These subtle changes give the vehicle a sportier, stronger look.
Space has been increased throughout the interior. Every occupant is set to enjoy greater personal space and accessibility. Knee room alone is expected to increase by close to three centimetres. With all passengers in place, the boot now holds 615 litres – and folding the rear bench expands that to 1,655 litres.
Volkswagen claims that efficiency will be higher in the new model, thanks to changes made across the engine range. Engines for the Tiguan are anticipated to include petrol and diesel options, the petrol versions featuring potent turbocharging.
There should also be a plug-in hybrid, as hinted by the appearance of a Tiguan GTE Active Concept at the 2016 Detroit Motor Show. Smaller engines will propel the SUV forward in front-wheel drive, with four-wheel drive for more powerful models.
Full specifications for the new Volkswagen Tiguan have yet to be announced. Order books are open this spring, so get in touch with a Volkswagen dealer today to register your interest.
