Volkswagen's family-style design continues to enjoy a high degree of recognizability, and new Touareg also makes it instantly recognizable as a Volkswagen model. The design of light group is relatively simple, and combination of black background color and LED lens arrangement is relatively standard. What more to expect is changes to center grille. At present, many new Volkswagen vehicles, such as using a luminous through-type center grille design, and are expected to that new car will also have similar elements.
The size of air intake grille at bottom is greatly exaggerated, but judging by current image, this "air intake grille" does not fully provide efficiency of air intake, and two sides do not have an actual ventilation function. , which has a decorative value much more than actual one. The air vents on both sides are very aggressive and periphery is supposed to be surrounded by LED light bars thought to act as daytime running lights.
Compared to current model, side profile has not changed much, neither waistline nor proportions. Rim size is not final decision. It should currently be used to collect sensor data.
The design of rear has highest degree of camouflage, taillights and logo are decals from older models, the new model will most likely use thru-type taillights and is expected to feature a sportier exhaust system.
In terms of power, new Tiguan will still use internal combustion engine as main power, and new car will be optimized based on existing transmission. According to declaration chart, an increase in power is expected. As for purely electric version, next generation models will not be electrified at this time, but hybrid models will still be introduced.
The new Tiguan is based on MQB EVO platform, although it is called next generation model, but in fact it can be considered as a modified version of existing model. According to foreign media reports, new generation Tiguan will be released later in 2023, and official sale may wait until 2024. In domestic market, the possibility of simultaneous implementation is great, and it will be further extended to obtain a better interior space.
