Ever since the first Volkswagen Tiguan was introduced in 2007, the family-sized SUV has been the German car giant’s best-selling model.
So when a new version comes along, bosses want to make sure they have all the right ingredients for that success to continue.
Here, we detail all the new features and reveal how much the Tiguan will cost when the first examples arrive on UK soil from next spring.
How popular is the Tiguan? The first two generations have sold more than 7.5million units across the globe in a 15-year cycle – the period in which demand for SUVs has rocketed and left every other vehicle segment in its tyre tracks.
Tiguan buyers from next year will be able to order from a fresh new engine line-up and benefit from a range of new tech crammed into the family-car’s cabin.
Undoubtedly the last Tiguan to be unveiled with internal combustion engines under the bonnet, this third-generation car gets a choice of TDI turbo diesels, TSI turbo petrols, eTSI mild-hybrids and, finally, a new plug-in ‘eHybrid’ system.
All are linked to a VW’s tried and tested – and market leading – automatic DSG gearbox.
Like the new Passat estate unveiled last month, the transmission controls have been moved to a stalk behind the steering wheel rather than the traditional stick in the centre console.
