Shortly after making its online debut, the all-new Volkswagen Tiguan has arrived at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The SUV was previewed earlier this year at the Detroit Motor Show through the Cross Coupe GTE concept car and now bears Volkswagen’s latest design language.
Looking radically different from the outgoing model, the all-new Tiguan is based on Volkswagen’s MQB platform. The vehicle is now bigger, longer and despite the increased proportions almost 50kg lighter than the old model, thanks to the modern architecture.
Globally, the Tiguan is being offered with four petrol and four diesel engine options. The petrol range consists of engines producing anywhere between 123bhp and 234bhp while the latter range produces between 118bhp and 240bhp.
Except for the base petrol and diesel models, all the other engines can also be had with the optional 4MOTION all-wheel drive system. Like most VW products, the Tiguan will be available in three trim levels: Trendline, ComfortLine and Highline.
Production of the new Tiguan will take place at Volkswagen’s production facility in Mexico where it will be built in both five and seven-seater configurations. The SUV will be sold in several global markets including India where it’s expected to arrive sometime next year.
