New VW Tiguan coming in 2024 – Everything we know

The next generation of VW’s Tiguan SUV – its best-selling model around the world – will be making its debut in 2024.

The Wolfsburg-based carmaker has published photos of its prototype model decked out in camouflage while also providing details on what we can expect from its latest creation in the coming year.

What we know

Unlike the Golf and Polo, which are expected to either ditch their internal combustion engines (ICE) or be scrapped entirely as a result of the global shift towards electric cars, the new Tiguan will still be offered with a number of powertrains that use both petrol and diesel.

The automaker has announced four different engines for the SUV – a turbocharged petrol (TSI), a turbocharged diesel (TDI), a mild-hybrid turbocharged petrol (eTSI), and a plug-in hybrid (eHybrid) – but has not yet revealed the performance figures for any of these systems.

It did, however, state that the eHybrid has an electric driving range of up to 100km depending on equipment, suggesting that the plug-in model may be offered with different battery sizes.

It also said that its AC charging technology had been improved and that DC charging would be supported as standard for the first time.

The third-generation Tiguan is built on the brand’s new modular MQB platform, much like the latest Golf GTI, which gives it adaptive chassis and suspension control, electronic differential locks, and controllable shock absorbers.

The SUV will only be available with an automatic transmission, and gearshifts will now exclusively be handled by paddle shifters and a switch on the right side of the steering wheel is installed for drive and reverse.

Feature-wise, the Volkswagen will be optionally available with IQ.Light Matrix LED headlights – something that was previously reserved for the brand’s range-topping entries like the Touareg and top-spec Amarok.

It will also come with a revamped interior with a digital driver display and an enormous 15-inch infotainment screen, letting users operate the car’s functions and cabin settings like the on-board navigation, climate control, sound system, and ambient lighting.

Another optional extra is the ergoActive front seats which have heating and ventilation, pneumatic four-way adjustable lumbar support, and 10-chamber pressure-point massage functions.

While the vehicle has only grown by three centimetres, the boot has increased by 33 litres for a new total of 648 litres when all the seats are up.
