The Volkswagen Tiguan crossover is all set to make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany after the 2nd week of September. Everyone is waiting to see how good this new crossover from one of the popular German auto manufacturer is. Volkswagen has a reputation of bringing in attractive and performance oriented cars in the auto market and there are hopes that the new Tiguan crossover will be on the same lines.
Volkswagen had teased the Volkswagen Tiguan just a few days back in order to increase the eagerness among crossover enthusiasts. This car is completely built in the Wolfsburg plant of the company in Germany. This new crossover will have a sportier and bolder look and it will resemble the shape of the Volkswagen Cross Coupe GTE concept car that was showcased during the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.
The car will be offered with a slanted rear windshield and a sloping roofline from the front to the rear. There will be huge changes seen in the interiors when compared to the previous version apart from coming out with an attractive and updated exterior style.
The new Volkswagen Tiguan will be built on the same MQB platform like the Audi TT, Audi A3 and Golf. The U.S. bound Volkswagen Tiguan will be coming from the Puebla plant in Mexico as well as from the company’s Germany plant. Volkswagen has confirmed that it will start to produce the long wheelbase and three row seat VW Tiguan in Mexico that is exclusively aimed at the U.S. market.
The engine that will be offered under the hood of the new VW Tiguan will be more or less similar to the Golf. This means that Volkswagen Tiguan will be offered with a 2.0 liter turbo diesel and 2.0 liter turbo four engines for the higher versions and 1.8 liter turbo four gas for the base version. The car will be offered in both front and rear wheel versions.
There are not many details so far let out about the crossover by Volkswagen. The company is presently tight lipped about what the SUV will be offering and everything will be revealed when the car takes the center stage at the Volkswagen pavilion at the Frankfurt Motor Show. There is no doubt that Volkswagen has decided to look in the forward direction with the styling of the Volkswagen Tiguan SUV and this will reflect in the other SUVS that are coming up from the Volkswagen stable.
