Prior to debut, 2024 Volkswagen Tiguan spied testing in Europe
German marque Volkswagen is giving Tiguan a major revamp as evident by a prototype of the third generation model spotted testing in Europe. The next-generation car appears to have adapted the shape of ID.4 as it looks less boxy and larger than the outgoing model. The new four-wheeler will have a non-integrated touchscreen infotainment panel inside and multiple engine options.
Why does this story matter?
- The 2024 version of the Volkswagen Tiguan is expected to offer better looks and enhanced features in comparison to its predecessor.
- The car is expected to rack up decent sales in the overseas markets and will also make its way to India.
- In our market, the updated car will rival the likes of Citroen C5 Aircross and Tata Harrier.
The SUV will have full-LED illumination
Volkswagen Tiguan will have a refreshed design, featuring a chrome-finished grille, a muscular bonnet, a wide air dam, narrow LED headlamps, and body-colored bumpers. It will be flanked by ORVMs, roof rails, indicator-mounted ORVMs, and alloy wheels with flared arches. On the rear end, it will be graced by a shark-fin antenna, wrap-around LED taillights, a spoiler, faux exhaust tips, and a window wiper.
There will be multiple powertrain options
Under the hood, the 2024 Volkswagen Tiguan will be offered with a choice of Euro 7-compliant petrol and diesel engines. Mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrain options might also be available.
It will get a steering wheel sans touch-sensitive functions
The 2024 Volkswagen Tiguan will have a spacious cabin, with a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, electrically adjustable front seats, leather seat upholstery, and a steering wheel sans touch-sensitive functions. It will house a non-integrated touchscreen infotainment panel with support for the latest connectivity facilities. To ensure the safety of passengers, it will offer multiple airbags, ABS, and EBD.
What about pricing and availability?
