It was back in 2017 we got our first look at the Volkswagen Tiguan compact SUV that has since become the best-selling Volkswagen in America. Fast forward to today as we get our first look at 2022 Tiguan with a more modern look and an impressive suite of technology.
“The 2022 Tiguan represents a strong refresh for one of our best-selling SUVs,” said Hein Schafer, Senior Vice President for Product Marketing and Strategy. “It boasts sportier exterior styling, attainable technology, and competitive driver assistance feature deployment.”
On the outside, the Tiguan keeps its iconic look but sharpens it with a completely revised front end. A distinctive bumper and broad grille are complemented by standard LED headlights and daytime running lights (DRLs), and can be accented further by an available illuminated light line flanking the VW logo. The top two trims feature updated, sporty R-Line® design elements, including bumpers and side sills.
The distinctive side profile of the Tiguan remains with its strong character line carrying from the front fender through to the standard LED taillights. Newly centered Tiguan lettering on the rear matches Volkswagen family styling from the Arteon to the all-new Taos. The 2022 Tiguan will be available in eight exterior colors—including new Oryx White and Kings Red Metallic—and every trim level receives new wheels, ranging from 17-inch to 20-inch aluminum-alloy designs.
Inside, the Tiguan boasts updated technology throughout its cabin. The Volkswagen Digital Cockpit instrument cluster now comes standard with an 8-inch display (10-inch Digital Cockpit Pro available), as does Volkswagen Car-Net® with in-car Wi-Fi capability when you subscribe to a data plan. From the second trim in the revised lineup, MIB3 infotainment is standard along with wireless charging and wireless App-Connect for compatible devices.
There is so much more we will cover about the new Tiguan in the weeks ahead.
