ASuccessful types also have to work on themselves so that it stays that way with the top position. The Tiguan SUV has been Volkswagen’s best-selling model in the past two years, with almost 911,000 units rolling off the assembly line recently.

The next model year will be recognizable by a more horizontal grille with a new light signature. The headlights can be fitted with LED matrix light for an additional charge. From now on, the model lettering sits at the rear under the VW emblem. The taillights are equipped with LEDs as standard, and the tailgate can be opened electrically if required.
As standard, a 6.5-inch screen in the middle and optionally a 10-inch digital cockpit move in as standard. Volkswagen is continuing its much-criticized strategy of touch-sensitive sliders and has the blower and temperature control set in this way. We can only assess how well or badly this works after a test drive, VW first presented the Tiguan in a video conference.

For the first time, you can also say: finally, the Tiguan will also be available as a plug-in hybrid, but not in the Allspace-named model with a long wheelbase. The hybrid, which can be recharged at the socket, is said to be able to drive about 50 kilometers electrically with a 13 kWh battery in accordance with the WLTP standard, and the system performance in conjunction with the 1.4-liter four-cylinder petrol engine will be 245 hp. The furious R version with 320 hp joins the family as a classic pound guy. The prices are supposed to go down, of course adjusted for equipment, which could then absolutely be more.
