The difference between the Tiguan X and other variants is the B-pillar and the rear. Like most coupe crossovers, the roofline drops sharply towards the steep rear window and chunky boot lid. In addition, the Tiguan X is distinguished by new taillights with a thin LED strip connecting them and a large badge that says “Tiguan X”.

The Tiguan X is on display at Volkswagen’s booth in Beijing, equipped with the R Line design package, which includes distinctive bumpers and a new set of wheels. It is noteworthy that the VW Tiguan X is based on the long-wheelbase Tiguan, that is, it has a wheelbase of 2,791 mm long. It was designed and will be built by the SAIC-VW joint venture.

According to the press service of the German brand, in China, prices for a compact coupe-crossover range from 246,000 to 306,000 yuan.
