A replacement for the Tiguan crossover is almost ready, and the latest spy photos indicate that the compact SUV really gets a huge redesign. The prototype looks pretty much as the 2013 CrossBlue concept, so we have a good idea what to expect from the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan. However, the all-new design won’t be the only change because the crossover gets some excellent engines as well.
2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Will Offer a Diesel Engine
These are just the rumors, but as we have heard, the 2017 VW Tiguan will get a diesel engine for the U.S. model. The compact SUV will likely feature a 2.0 TDI turbodiesel unit, while the gasoline options should be a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a 1.8L turbocharged unit. All the engines will be paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed DSG gearbox, which will be able to send a power to front or optional all wheels.
2017 Volkswagen Tiguan: Redesign Changes and Tech
As for the design, we must say that the prototype revel some sportier and sexier parts of Tiguan. Compared to the current model, the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan promises to offer more hot blood, because the crossover gets an aggressive front end with lower rooflines. In addition, the 2017 Tiguan will ride on Volkswagen’s modular MQB platform that will give it 10 inches more than before. This way, there will be a third row of seating, but this will be optional for second-gen Tiguan. This third row is more for small children. The interior will feature some new high-tech, which is already introduced with the Golf. The interface gets different displays: one in the center stack ( 12.8-inch) , second, an 8-inch a little bit below, while the third goes for the instrument cluster, and it measures 12.3 inches.
The 2017 VW Tiguan promises to be more premium than its biggest rivals, so we assume it must be a little bit more expensive than now.
