The tests saw a prototype of the updated Tiguan crossover – the car almost did not receive camouflage. The debut of the new 2021 model year should take place very soon.

Presentation of the compact Tiguan crossover 2021 model year should be held very soon – the prototype of the new product was seen without any disguise a couple of hours ago. It seems that the car had an R-Line front bumper, however the rear bumper has a simpler appearance with a pair of artificial exhaust tips. Of course, the most significant change is the new appearance of the headlights – they now look like the headlights of the new generation Golf 8 hatchback, where LED “eyebrows” also extend along the sides of the car.

VW designers also changed the false radiator grille – now it has become wider at the bottom, where there is a chrome frame that creates a visual connection with the headlights.

This is the same story with the top to give the impression of a continuous line that combines the grille with the headlights. The prototype had a slightly updated VW logo introduced last year.

The taillights have essentially not changed, but they use new graphics inspired by the Golf 8 taillights. In addition, the model name has been moved to the center of the tailgate, right under the VW badge.

VW Tiguan 2021 model year will receive updated engines, as well as a substantially expanded list of options for each configuration. Buyers will be offered a plug-in hybrid powerplant and, quite possibly, the long-awaited version of the Tiguan R – a high-performance crossover, under the hood of which there will be a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with a power of 315 hp.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that VW is testing a hybrid version of the next generation Transporter / A prototype plug-in hybrid version of the German next-generation Transporter van was spotted on the Nurburgring race track. The debut of new items will take place at the end of this year.
