New Tiguan gets a closed-off grille with an LED lightbar connecting the headlamps.
Starting with the design, the new Tiguan gets the now familiar connected headlights with a LED lightbar running along the upper section of the grille. The grille itself is closed off with the main air intake positioned lower down on the bumper. While heavily camouflaged the test mule images reveal a prominent rear haunch along with part of the tail lamps with bar-like LED detailing. Volkswagen says that the new Tiguan will be around 30 mm longer than the outgoing model though it will retain the same wheelbase.
New minimalist cabin moves almost all in-car functions to the central touchscreen
The big news however is the image of the interior which gives an undisguised look at the cabin. Prominent design details include a digital instrument cluster integrated into a flat vertical section running the width of the dashboard and a large 15-inch central touchscreen. The dashboard follows a minimalistic there with minimal control surfaces on the centre console and even the gear selector now mounted on a stalk behind the steering – as seen in modern Mercedes cars. Volkswagen says most of the in-car controls are relocated to the central touchscreen while a rotary selector with an in-built display on the centre console can be used to change drive modes, adjust volume or cycle through the colours of ambient lighting.
Coming to the tech, Volkswagen confirmed that the new Tiguan will feature the brand’s Matrix LED headlights, adaptive suspension, vehicle dynamics control with an electronic locking differential, heated and ventilated seats and seat massage function.
