VW to offer coupe version of Tiguan SUV, says German magazine

As coupe-styled sports utility vehicles gain a following among customers around the world, carmakers are also racing to offer sports activity coupes (SAC), as these vehicles are called. While the Volkswagen Tiguan is currently becoming one of the best-sellers in the world, it wouldn’t be a big surprise if the German carmaker adds a coupe variant of the VW Tiguan.

Just recently, German automotive magazine Auto Bild published a report saying that VW is indeed planning to sport a coupe version of the Tiguan SUV. Auto Bild added that the VW could launch the Tiguan coupe-SUV as early as next year (2018). The magazine quipped that the German carmaker is seeing an opportunity to introduce the coupe-SUV version after it launched a now larger Tiguan, which is capable of accommodating an optional third-row seat.

The coupe-SUV version would mean that the Tiguan could now cater to more groups of potential customers. For instance, the coupe-SUV version of the Tiguan would be a great proposition to customers who don’t need the extra space offered by the now-larger SUV. These customers are willing to give up the extra room for the sake of driving a Tiguan that looks more chic and stylish. Featuring a smaller interior, the coupe-SUV variant of the VW Tiguan would also be less practical and less utilitarian. Its chic and stylish exterior would be matched by a premium-looking trim while its rear bench would be replaced by two more luxurious seats.

2018 VW Tiguan receives new 2.0-liter TSI engine

Volkswagen of America has a nice surprise for potential customers of the new VW Tiguan (2018 model year). The latest iteration of the Tiguan – set to arrive in the United States this summer -- will be the first VW model to be fitted with the new advanced version of the German carmaker’s EA888 four-cylinder gasoline engine.

This new engine is a revised yet improved version of VW’s third-generation (Generation 3) EA888 that boasts of a displacement of 1.8 liters. The 1.8-liter four-cylinder, turbocharged and direct-injection EA888 Gen 3 engine (1.8 TSI) is still what powers current models of the VW Beetle, Golf, Jetta and Passat. VW has made certain updates to its four-stroke cycle to improve not only its levels of power and efficiency, but also its responsiveness, resulting to the creation of the 2.0-liter EA888 Gen 3B engine (2.0 TSI).

Updates implemented on the EA888 Gen 3 engine include using a longer piston stroke, a tweak which was responsible for the increase in the updated mill’s displacement. The piston stroke on the 1.8 TSI is 84.1 mm while on the 2.0 TSI, it is 92.8 mm. VW also modified the engine’s piston crown and combustion chamber, resulting to a higher compression ratio of 11.7:1.

VW Tiguan Allspace is set to make European debut at 2017 Geneva Motor Show

The Volkswagen Tiguan is considered by many as the most successful SUV to come out of Germany. It is estimated that about half a million customers have chosen the Tiguan, which comes in either the all-wheel drive version or the front-wheel drive variety. Despite releasing the second generation model last year, Volkswagen is pushing out another version -- the Tiguan Allspace.

While this variant will be part of Volkswagen’s display during the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show, it will not be the first time for customers to see this SUV. Indeed, it has been showcased not only in North America but also in China. However, this will be the first time it will be shown in Europe.

For many SUV customers, the main consideration is space and the Allspace does not disappoint. In fact, it has an overall length of 4,701 mm (an increase of 215 mm). In addition, the wheelbase is now 2,790 mm instead of the standard 2,681 mm, an addition of 190 mm. While this means that it is still shorter than the Touareg, the change in dimensions is enough to satisfy many SUV customers. As such, five passengers can sit in comfort inside and with the extra room, additional seats can be installed to increase the count to seven.

We love spy pictures and videos. For fans and enthusiasts, or for journalists and rival carmakers, spy images and videos are coveted. Well, our inherent love for spy images and videos is basically fueled by the fact these graphics allow people to have a basic idea of the overall appearance of a new model. Moreover, these spy graphics helps confirm whether a carmaker is on its way to bring a new vehicle offering to the market.

Spy images and videos are usually taken from afar by enterprising photographers or so-called “carparazzi” while the vehicles or their prototypes are being tested on tracks or on the road. Thus, it was very surprising and highly unusual for Volkswagen to provide a spy video of some of its newest products. VW took some good shots of its new offerings like the Arteon coupe, Tiguan Allspace and Up! GTI being tested in the harsh environment of South Africa.

These vehicles were being tested for their endurance both on paved and rough roads on high temperatures of around 40 degrees Celsius. Frank Welsch, Board Member for Development at Volskwagen, remarked that to push the engines of these new models to the limits, they were driven with the air-conditioning units turned on. This way, VW could make sure that air-conditioning units work even then. He added that these vehicles – especially the Tiguan Allspace – were being tested on dirt and paved roads to make sure that occupants always feel comfortable under any road condition.

Volkswagen has officially unveiled the new 2018 Tiguan long-wheelsbase during the 2017 North American International Auto Show held in Detroit. This model marks a big step for the brand especially in the U.S. market.

The reason is that this model was developed by engineers at the brand, keeping American customers in mind. This means that it has the fun to drive quality of the present Tiguan but with an interior that offers more space and sophistication. There is also a host of new driver assistance technologies plus advanced infotainment and even flexible seating.

The Tiguan utilizes the brand’s very own Modular Transverse Matrix, or MQB, platform much like the Atlas. As already mentioned, the 2018 Tiguan has more space than the present version as it is longer by 10.7 inches with overall length at 185.2 inches.

Volkswagen has revealed that a new version of its Tiguan SUV will have its official debut during the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) to be held in Detroit this coming January 2017. Specifically, this variant of the Tiguan is expected to showcase a much longer wheelbase.

Dubbed as the Tiguan L or Allspace, the wheelbase is now longer by as much as 4.3 inches (11 cm) giving it overall length of around 181 inches (460 cm). With this new length plus the overhang in the rear made longer as well, it gives the Tiguan Allspace a bigger body. As such, it allows for an additional space to put in a new pair of seats and thus increase total passenger count to a maximum of seven. However like those of its competitors, for instance the Land Rover Discovery Sport, there is a high possibility that the new third-row seats will only appropriate fgor children.

In terms of design, an early look has revealed that compared to the previous version, the new model has a roofline that is flatter with the rear doors now longer. However there are still similarities like the rear section and even how the B-pillar also has the same forward style. This is because the XL Tiguan utilizes the same modular MQB chassis of the smaller version.

Attendees to the 2016 North American International Auto Show are in for a treat, because Volkswagen has unveiled a brand-new SUV during the event. This is the Tiguan GTE Active Concept, which features a dual-motor hybrid system coupled with a gas-powered conventional engine.

This means that the new GTE Active Concept features not just one, but two electric motors! In addition, the new Tiguan SUV features a push button start up system, and a four-wheel drive, which ensures excellent performance even in off-road conditions.

After debuting in the NAIAS, the GTE Active Concept is due to hit dealerships in the United States next year. According to Volkswagen, it will be the first of a line of new vehicles that will be introduced into various markets including North America.

Volkswagen took the covers off its first plug-in hybrid SUV at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. This Tiguan GTE is indicative of where the brand intends to take the Tiguan in the future. Exhibited as a concept vehicle, the Tiguan GTE is capable of generating a system power of 160 kW / 218 PS.

When in the all-electric mode, it can be driven up to 50 km in "E-Mode" with absolutely no emissions. It has a combined fuel consumption of an average of 1.9 l/100 km with a CO2 emissions rating of 42 g/km. Its driving range as an electric vehicle is quite long as it gains from being equipped with a lithium-ion battery (which can be charged externally up to 13.0 kWh) and the first-of-its-kind solar module that is built into the roof.

The energy generation from this module is dependent on the regional solar radiation power but with the ideal conditions, it can generate as much as 1,000 km of driving range annually. Conditions in Germany may cause it to produce energy for a 500 km drive while in Southern Europe, it can go as high as 800 to 1,000 km.

The upcoming Tiguan is the first Volkswagen SUV to be built on the path-breaking MQB (modular transverse matrix) platform, which improves all of its characteristics. Its dimensions are noticeably sporty and its design is appealing whichever angle you look at.

Volkswagen plans a $1-billion investment for an expansion of its Puebla facility in Mexico to build a larger, redesigned Tiguan compact crossover. The spending will entail the installation of high-technology assembly lines, according to Andreas Hinrichs, chief executive of Volkswagen Mexico. The investment will also generate around 2,000 jobs and help auto parts suppliers retool their plants to support Tiguan output.

The site will commence building the Tiguan next year and VW will start selling the compact in 2017, Hinrichs said. VW is bound to redesign the Tiguan in 2017, with a long-wheelbase version bound to be rolled out in the United States.

According to VW, the production capacity for the long-wheelbase Tiguan will be 500 units per day, adding that it will shipped to North and South America and other global markets, excluding the European Union and China. VW’s Puebla site already builds the Golf compact underpinned by a version of the Modular Transverse Matrix or “MQB” platform that will also underpin the next Tiguan.

The current Volkswagen Tiguan received a facelift back in 2011 and while subtle modifications were brought by the latest Tiguan Cityscape that arrived earlier this year. Still, the Tiguan’s life cycle of the current version is preparing to come to an end as Volkswagen is preparing to roll out the next-generation.

Set to arrive in 2016, the next-generation Tiguan will be offered in three versions in order to boost its sales.

Talking to our source located in Germany, we found out that the second-generation Tiguan will be offered also in the XL version (long wheelbase version developed especially for the Chinese market) but also as a CC with a coupe-like roofline.

Volkswagen will expand output of its Tiguan compact SUV to its Hanover site in Germany to boost capacity utilization at the plant, people privy with the matter told Reuters. The Hanover plant currently produces the T5 van, Amarok pick-up truck and the Porsche Panamera. The site risks losing output of the Panamera since Porsche is planning to focus production at its Leipzig plant.

The Hanover site also failed to win the production of the new Crafter van, which VW plans to build at a new facility in Poland near its Poznan plant. A labor representative at the Hanover site remarked in January that the facility needs a new model to secure jobs since it is only using only 70 percent of its capacity.

To shore up capacity utilization in Hanover, VW plans to add the Tiguan compact SUV, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters, confirming a recent report by Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

This is the new special 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan Cityscape, a new version of the well-known crossover that features subtle body modifications, a two-tone exterior paint and with a high-quality equipment.

Although officials are denying it, Volkswagen will produce the Taigun, according to Autoweek. Unveiled back in 2012 at the Sao Paolo Motor Show, the new Taigun will take on cars such as the Ford EcoSport and will fit in Volkswagen’s lineup two classes below the Tiguan. Ford offers 4WD as an option on the EcoSport, but it appears that Volkswagen will only offer the Tiguan as a FWD model due to the fact that it wants economies of scale with the smaller Up city car.

As expected, the German manufacturer will not offer the Taigun in the United States because the vehicle is way too small and features 3-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines, which are not loved by the Americans. Still, the Taigun is expected to be a hit in markets such as Asia or South America.

Sources didn’t reveal a timeline for the production but we might expect this new car by 2016, same year when Volkswagen intents to launch a long-wheelbase, second-generation Tiguan previewed by the CrossBlue Concept, shown at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. Taigun will be assembled in Sao Paolo, Brazil (left-hand drive) and in India (right-hand drive).

German carmaker Volkswagen is now offering a new trim level to its Tiguan compact sports utility vehicle line-up, the R-Line. This trim level was one of the most popular models among the first generations of the Tiguan compact SUV, as the R-Line accounted for almost 20 percent of the total sales. With the return of the Tiguan R-Line, VW expects the vehicle to account for around a quarter of the total sales of the Tiguan.

New Tiguan R-Line is based on the SE trim level, with the addition of bi-xenon headlights, 18-inch ‘Mallory’ alloy wheels painted in Sterling Silver with black wheelarch extensions and body-colored unique front and rear ‘R’ design bumpers and rear spoiler. The latest Tiguan model also bears an R-Line logo on the front grille and aluminium front door sills.

This theme is carried over into the interior of the Tiguan R-Line, accentuated with front sport seats, two-tone upholstery and an R-Line logo on the front head restraints. The vehicle also sports stainless steel pedals and a leather multifunction steering wheel with aluminium inlay and R-Line logo. The Tiguan R-Line is available in three powerful engine choices: a 2.0-litre TSI with 210 PS and 4MOTION four-wheel drive, and the 2.0-litre common rail TDI engine with either 140 or 170 PS and 4MOTION.

Volkswagen design chief Walter de' Silva told Automotive News Europe that a small crossover will be launched below the compact Tiguan as part of a plan to expand the crossover lineup. To appeal to a broader audience, VW hopes to add crossovers of various sizes and with different design characteristics. De Silva said that the demand for crossovers is expanding from mature markets to emerging markets. The rising demand prompts a multilateral expansion in its brand offering.

He added that part of the expansion involves the addition of a smaller crossover under the Tiguan, which comes after the large Touareg. JATO Dynamics said that in the first half of the year, the Tiguan and the Touareg were the top sellers in Europe. VW has no model in this small SUV/crossover segment, which is showing quick growth with an 81% increase in sales to 112,530 units.

The Dacia Duster accounted for a majority of the segment's growth with an almost sixfold sales increase to 76,204 units. In addition, VW seeks to launch crossovers with different looks.

ABT tuners thought that the facelifted Volkswagen Tiguan was somewhat lacking and so it created a custom package that targets both the looks and the performance of the German SUV.

The ABT Volkswagen Tiguan facelift includes a new front grille, custom door strip attachments, a redesigned rear skirt that also fits in the exhaust system and a rear wing.
