Journalists came across a camouflaged prototype of the “charged” performance of the German VW Tiguan crossover. The car received dual exhaust pipes. The date of presentation of the novelty is still unknown.

We have been sharing “spy” images from the tests of the high-performance Tiguan R SUV for more than three years, but the long-awaited “hot” novelty from Volkswagen has not yet been presented. A new batch of car test shots that took place in northern Sweden has just arrived and is a bit more special than the previous ones because it depicts an updated version of the crossover. Despite the fact that VW previously tested the “charged” version of the old-style VW Tiguan, now, the team of brand engineers took as the basis the most current version of the model, the presentation of which has not yet taken place.

Pictures at first glance may not seem so interesting, but if you look at the car from behind, you will notice two twin tailpipes of the exhaust system.

In addition, there are drilled rotors with blue brake calipers on the front wheels. There is also some deceptive camouflage at the front that tries to hide the large air intakes supplying air to a powerful engine.

 There are some interesting rumors regarding the motor. According to insiders, under the hood of the novelty will be the already familiar 2.0-liter TSI four-cylinder engine, connected to the 4Motion all-wheel drive system and DSG transmission. It should have a capacity of about 330 horsepower. This is not official information, but the fact that the high-performance T-Roc R crossover has a 296-horsepower engine is in its favor, and in the automaker’s lineup, the T-Roc is a notch below the Tiguan.
