The next generation 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan is scheduled to make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show merely days from now, and to kickstart the hype train, the German carmaker has released these official sketches of the compact crossover vehicle.
Full details of the all-new Tiguan aren’t released yet but we do see influences of the Volkswagen Cross Coupe GTE concept, which debuted at this year’s Detroit Auto Show, and the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show's CrossBlue Coupe concept in its design.
The front end features slim, sharper headlights (with integrated daytime-running lights) that flank a two-slate front grille. More muscular wheel arches are also seen along with a new skid plate.
At the rear, the theme continues with taillights inspired by the all-new Volkswagen Passat (B8) and Cross Coupe GTE/CrossBlue Coupe concepts. It even adopts the angular exhaust tips and five twin-spoke alloy wheel design.
Underpinning the all-new Volkswagen Tiguan is said to be the company’s modular transverse (MQB) platform that boasts and longer wheelbase while retaining the vehicle’s previous dimensions. This also opens the possibility of a seven-seater variant and even a BMW X4-like coupe, although it has yet to be confirmed
We’ll have to wait till the next generation 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan makes its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show for more details.
