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.
We don’t see the upcoming Tiguan CC as a rival for the BMW X4, as this model will probably be cheaper than its Bavarian rival. Regarding the design, we don’t know too much, but we expect this new model to arrive with styling design elements found on concepts such as the Cross Blue Coupe but also inspired by the new Passat B8, which will make its official debut next month.
Under the hood, the second-generation Tiguan will use the same engines found on other VW models such as the popular 2.0-liter TDI diesel engine but also the 1.8-liter TSI petrol engine. Unfortunately, these are the only details available, but stay tuned as we will reveal you more as soon as we find out something new!
