2016 VW Tiguan spied

The design language is sharper and sportier than the existing SUV. Inspiration has come from Cross Blue Coupe Concept.

2016 VW Tiguan SUV has been photographed without any camouflage for the first time. The spyshots were clicked by Carscoop’s reader Sean in Vancouver, Canada.

The spyshots cover only the rear quarter angle from a top view but one can notice that the design inspiration has come from Cross Blue Concept. The new gen car is decidedly sharper and more premium than the outgoing model which is rather bland in comparison.

The front facsia would comply with the brand’s latest design theme with narrow chrome grille¬†which seamlessly integrates itself into slender headlamps. In profile, the new SUV gets a clean sheet metal design with a fine waistline, chrome rub strips, blacked out B-pillar and a tapering C-pillar.

2016 VW Tiguan features a panoramic sun roof.

The rear fascia sports a well proportioned windshield, two-part angular combination lights that extend from rear fenders all the way up to tailgate, a thin chrome strip on the bumper and a black diffuser with twin circular tailpipes.

Underpinned by MQB platform, 2016 Tiguan would derive a range of TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines from Golf premium hatchback. Both manual and DSG automatic transmissions will be in the offing.

2016 VW Tiguan is likely to be showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this month, at least as a near production ready concept. The new gen model would spawn a longer wheelbase variant with 7-seats for markets like India and a stylish coupe version.
