It showcases the new Volkwagen design philosophy with bold and strong lines running from the from the front to the sides. The focus is indeed on the bold new grille that now flows into the new headlamp cluster.
The rest of the design, although fresh and new, looks functional and practical at best. The SUV gets LED headlamps with LED DRLs, five spoke alloy wheels, along with a skid plates and a roof mounted spoiler at the rear.
Moving to the interiors, Volkswagen Tiguan gets a panorma sunroof with LED surroundings, automatic climate control and a touch screen infotainment system at the center of the dashboard.
