What you see here is early sketches of the new Volkswagen Tiguan, which is believed to be premiered at the Frankfurt Motor Show next week.
Full details are being withheld at the moment but these renderings give us a glimpse of what we can expect from the second generation compact crossover. Evidently, the new Tiguan is styled with influence from the Cross Coupe GTE concept from earlier this year with sleek headlights, three-slat front grille and elongated tail lamps.
It’s no secret that the Tiguan will underpin the brand’s renowned MQB platform, making it lighter than the outgoing model and big enough for a third row seat. Other reports suggest that Volkswagen will offer the crossover in three body styles: standard as seen here, coupe with the CC badge, and a long-wheelbase model for the Chinese market.
As for powertrains, the Tiguan could feature a family of TSI and TDI engines ranging from 1.8 to 2.0 litres, with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission driving the front wheels. The famous 4Motion all-wheel-drive system will come at an extra cost.
