Volkswagen has shared the first details of its third-generation Tiguan, which will be available with a new active suspension control system and full-size features. Based on MQB evo, a new generation of the modular transverse remix, the PHEV will offer up to 62 miles (100 kilometers) of all-electric range. The OEM expects its new compact SUV to launch in 2024, following its world premiere in autumn 2023.
Inside the Tiguan is a newly developed cockpit, which itself offers a new infotainment system. Heading the vehicle’s technology offering is a 15-inch screen that displays its navigation, music, and climate control functions – all of which can be customized with quick access. Further along, the center console houses the Driving Experience Control – which has its own ‘mini screen’ and can be used to control the Tiguan’s drive mode, radio volume, or ambient lighting colors.
In future, the new Tiguan will be offered exclusively with an automated shift gearbox (DSG). Much like Volkswagen’s ID. models, the gear position is now changed by means of a steering column switch on the right of the steering wheel with an accompanying operating principle. Here, the switch is turned to ‘D’ to drive forwards, backwards to ‘R’ to reverse, and the parking brake is activated by pressing the side of the switch. Paddle shifters are also available behind the steering wheel.
