Volkswagen has presented the all-new Tiguan, which is now available as a plug-in hybrid with 62 miles of electric range. As one of the most successful Volkswagen models ever – with more than 7.6 million models sold since its debut in 2007 – the third-generation Tiguan is pegged to reach dealerships by the first quarter of 2024.
The compact SUV comes with a completely new design. As a particularly striking feature, the front of the vehicle has a powerful look with flat LED headlights and a glass-covered horizontal strip. The sharp silhouette is characterised by athletic shoulders over the wheel housings (with up to 20-inch wheels). And there’s a new horizontal LED strip to add emphasis to the rear end.
Volkswagen said that new technological developments have improved the Tiguan in practically every area. The SUV is now more efficient than ever with the help of the new hybrid drive with an all-electric range of about 62 miles. In addition, AC charging will be faster in all eHybrid versions, and fast DC charging will also be possible as standard for the first time.
The interior of the Tiguan features a completely new concept and design. It stands out with its high standards of material and workmanship. In addition, the new cockpit landscape is intuitive to use, closely integrated, and has a clean and smart design.
Besides, the Volkswagen Tiguan is the first MQB model to be launched with the newly developed IQ.LIGHT HD matrix headlights. A total of 38,400 multipixel LEDs (19,200 multipixel LEDs per headlight) illuminate the road and the surrounding area to a completely new level and therefore improve comfort and safety.
The new Tiguan has also increased in length by approximately three centimetres. The height, width and wheelbase remain practically identical to the predecessor. The luggage compartment capacity of the new generation shows just how good the use of space is: although the SUV is only slightly longer, its luggage compartment capacity has increased by 37 litres to 652 litres (when loaded up to the height of the rear seat backrests).
