2015 VW Tiguan TDI USA

The original Volkswagen Tiguan was launched seven years ago so it’s about time for next generation to be launched. Main thing about new Tiguan is a new platform called MQB, which is also used for Golf VII and also some Skoda models. New platform will enable longer wheelbase (to 2700 mm) which automatically means more room both in the luggage and front and back seats. This compact crossover will have great flexibility. With length of 4.9 meters, new 2015 VW Tiguan could easily get third row of seats. But we think that won’t happen because it’s not in company’s plans because they want to introduce one more, a large crossover based on a Cross Blue Concept, which will include third row of seats.

This model could be presented in 2016. In any case, the design of new Tiguan will be heavily influenced by this concept vehicle. The 2015 VW Tiguan will have the characterful, squared-off wheelarches, which is a signature feature of all new VW SUVs. Rear end includes LED tail-lights, a neat, integrated spoiler and, on top-spec R-Line models, twin exhausts. The good thing about new platform is also that it leaves room for up to 19 inch wheels and enables weight reduction to less than 1500 kg. It is expected this car to include 19″ Savannah alloy wheels,  Nappa leather seats, leather steering wheel and leather covered gear knob, sport tuned suspension and also new Haldex 5 system that’s graced the new Skoda Octavia 4×4, Volkswagen Golf R and Audi S3.

Under the hood we expect engine line up similar to a current Golf’s line up. There will be 1.2, 1.4 and 2.0 liter TSI petrol engines. Diesel aggregates will be 1.6 and 2.0 turbodiesels. Both petrol and diesel engines will have improved fuel economy. In that order we expect start/stop system and probably new 10-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission to be included as a standard equipment. The 2015 VW Tiguan TDI diesel engine will probably be replaced with a next-generation version called the EA288.

The place of production and price are still unknown. There are some rumors that new 2015 VW Tiguan will be produced in Chattanooga assembly, Tennessee. The price should be similar to current model, around 30.000 dollars for U.S. and 30,000 Euros for European market. This redesigned Tiguan we expect in late 2014.
