New Volkswagen Tiguan leaked! Images of new-generation midsize SUV appear online


The Tiguan is set to feature significantly different exterior styling and will see a new interior design implemented, too

We’ve seen some spy shots of the Volkswagen Tiguan, but now fresh online leaks give us our best look yet at what’s to come. 

The new images, which were shared on the MQB-Coding Facebook group and likely originating from an internal Volkswagen database of some kind, it seems that the new-generation Tiguan is set to look significantly different from the current-generation car, with a more curved and sculpted look.

We can see that the grille has been redesigned with what looks to be a LED strip light design to run underneath the Volkswagen badge. 

The grille looks very closed off, also, which could signal the possibility of electrification or, at the very least, hybridisation. 

At the rear, the 2024 Tiguan continues the LED strip light pattern which passes right across the rear of the vehicle. Tiguan brand lettering can be seen towards the bottom side of the boot.

The interior is also set to depart significantly from the current look, with a new large tablet-style centre touchscreen, new air vents and, by the looks of things, the return of physical steering wheel buttons. 

The next third-generation Volkswagen Tiguan is expected to make its debut later this year, before a 2024 local on-sale date. 

The second-generation Tiguan, based on the MQB A2 platform, has been on sale in Australia since 2016.
