The New Volkswagen Tiguan

The New 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan

Read the Tiguan GuideFirst revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the highly anticipated new Volkswagen Tiguan is here!

Precise and confident, the powerful new second generation Tiguan is larger and roomier, yet lighter thanks to its redeveloped underbody. Its stylish and more premium looks are instantly noticeable, and highly appealing. 

As the newest addition to the range, the new Tiguan - with four variants previewed ahead of the launch - showcases the very best in Volkswagen design, engineering and technology. In this case, "new" means "completely new" – revolution instead of evolution. That is because the second generation Tiguan is the first Volkswagen Group SUV whose design is based on Volkswagen's game-changing MQB platform, which is future-oriented in all of its aspects.

I'd put my neck on the block and say that the Tiguan's ride is one of the best sorted in any segment - and I drive an awful lot of cars with my work" - Dave Moore. Read more here.

The new Tiguan has been named the "All-wheel Car of the Year" by readers of "Auto Bild Allrad", Europe's largest magazine for off-road vehicles. Read more in this article by Dave Moore. More recently, the Tiguan has won the award for Best Medium SUV in the 2016 AA New Zealand awards! 

The masculine redesign has made a major impact to this crossover, with it now dominating the style factor for the brand and leading the way with interior layout and customer-friendly technology. - AA Motoring

Designing the New Volkswagen Tiguan

New Tiguan and Tiguan R-Line

The Tiguan's new, streamlined and precise silhouette and sharp lines mark the start of a new design language from the outside in, taking cues and design DNA from the new Volkswagen Passat and perfecting for an SUV body shape to create a vehicle that is practical yet stylish, and comfortable yet executive.

A true statement in terms of design: distinctive, masculine, expressive. Marco Pavone, Designer Exterieur presents the new Volkswagen eye-catcher among the SUV's. Innovative is the new wow:

"It's a new beginning. It's a totally new car. It's a new concept. It's a new Tiguan. The main theme of the car is the high and well-sculptured shoulder that connects the brake light to the front fender. This is a unique design element that describes the car and gives it a solid and masculine touch. What I think is pretty interesting is how the shoulder line runs into the tail light. The tail light has an interesting 3D glass." 

"I think the new Tiguan has very good proportions; you know, sleek curves and solid body design, combined with short overhangs and up to 20 inch wheel size, give the car a really attractive appeal."

"That was our main target: to create a real statement. Really expressive design. This car symbolises - in terms of shape and sulpture - what a real SUV should be, and this is what it has become. The car is solid and is really precise, really dynamic; it's perfectly executed. It's an interesting combination between, functionality and emotion... and this is what Volkswagen is."
