2024 Volkswagen Tiguan Spied In The Alps Hiding Updates In Plain Sight

Volkswagen is about to present the Tiguan a serious revamp. Manufacturing prototypes of the third-generation mannequin have already been noticed on the transfer, with the newest one caught within the Alps attempting to cover the visible updates in plain sight, courtesy of YouTube’s CarSpyMedia.

Similar to the one caught by our spies on snow, the Tiguan right here was carrying intelligent decals to make the brand new mannequin appear to be its predecessor. The stickers have been seen on the headlights and taillights, the chrome strips on the grille and on the backside of the doorways, and the C-shaped chrome on the bumper. Even the rear finish comes with fake quad exhaust ideas, which have been really – you guessed it proper – simply stickers.

Regardless of the trouble to hide the adjustments, VW couldn’t disguise the truth that the next-generation mannequin was much less boxy than earlier than. It appeared to have tailored the form of the ID.4. The brand new Tiguan appeared bigger than the outgoing mannequin, too.

Whereas not seen within the spy video above, a prototype was caught earlier than failing to cover its cabin. A non-integrated touchscreen was seen on the dashboard, which must be one of many largest adjustments within the inside.

As for the steering wheel, VW CEO has confirmed that the touch-sensitive features won’t be current beginning within the upcoming Tiguan. You can even count on VW to straighten out infotainment points – each {hardware} and software program – on this new mannequin.

The underpinnings of the third-generation mannequin may use an evolution of the MQB platform, utilizing cleaner gasoline and diesel engines to adjust to upcoming Euro 7 laws. A light-hybrid model won’t shock us if it arrives, in addition to a plug-in hybrid mannequin that may increase the electrified lineup of the German marque.

The following Volkswagen Tiguan may very well be revealed within the second half of 2023 for the 2024 mannequin yr.
