2016 Volkswagen Tiguan spied for the first time

2016 Volkswagen Tiguan spied for the first time

The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan has been spotted undergoing altitude testing in the Alps. This second-generation model of the crossover was spotted wearing its production-ready body shell for the first time, sporting its new athletic shape which makes it look like a mini-Touareg.

The next-generation Tiguan will be designed along the lines of the Cross Coupe GTE concept and the new Passat B8. It will sport a more aggressive, sloping roofline and a slanted rear windshield to bring out its sporty character.  While these spy shots preview the standard crossover, Volkswagen will also launch a CC version of the Tiguan with a coupe-like roofline and an XL version with an extra third row of seat.

The new Tiguan will be based on the modular MQB platform, which is used in small cars like the Volkswagen Golf and the Audi A3. It will retain the 1.8-litre TSI petrol engine along with the 2.0-litre TDI oil burner. The Tiguan is expected to be internationally unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Globally, it competes with other crossovers like the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Ford EcoSport and the Skoda Yeti.
