Future Cars VW Sends All-New 2016 Tiguan SUV To The Gym
Volkswagen's Tiguan has mostly been successful for the German manufacturing company. One could set this down to its strong dynamics, acceptable operation, and generally inoffensive, but good-looking VW styling. To put it differently, for the fanatic amongst us, it was as useful as a plastic pail and fascinating as a potato.
Now for people who value some level of visual intrigue within their day-to-day school run form of transportation - we've some fantastic news! The VW scientists in Wolfsburg have been hard at work analyzing their next generation Tiguan, and first signs seem quite promising...
Muscle Germanic Styling:
When the present Tiguan was shown, it was a breath of fresh-air when compared with the apparently junky options of the exact same age - its tight, though reserved styling was similar to wearing a tuxedo to the neighborhood pub.
For 2016, that tux has become brawnier and much more fit. Following on from other current VW introductions, the styling is quite clean with sharp creases and folds across a lot of the body work. Frontal facets have powerful doses of newest EU Passat and Polo, as the the DLO (day opening location) follows on from your outgoing auto; albeit in a sharper, more polished nature.
An Up-Scale Inside:
Sitting inside the departing 2015 Tiguan is quite nice - if a small dated, and arguably behind the existing pack. Great news for 2016 is that there are going to be two editions; a-5 seater and bigger 7-seat providing. Noticeable progress are said to possess been made to biological engineering, cottage space and driver support technology.
Interior decoration is thought to mimic protections of the most recent European-marketplace Passat, VW cross-blue Coupe and Cross Coupe GTE Ideas. Here one can anticipate powerful flat styling, modern detailing, superior stuff, and remarkable build quality.
What's Going To Drive It:
As it is in line with the MQB modular system, the next Tiguan will probably use current four-cylinder engines shared with all the Golfing; therefore clue either an 2.0-liter TSI petrol, or 2.0-liter TDI diesel device for The United States, with other markets such as Europe acquiring a more comprehensive line. The inquiry remains if Volkswagen will include hybrid vehicle and plug-in hybrid power trains.
Volkswagen's Tiguan remains inside the school run section of compact SUV's. Here it fight for football-mum chariot of selection against Honda's CR-V, Toyota Rav4, Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5, Kia Sportage, Nissan Rogue and Subaru Forester.
All the above are extremely capable and worthy opponents, however I guess Volkswagen may only trump the lot with upper class 5 and 7-seat variants when it comes to show time after in 2013.
