2017 Volkswagen Tiguan: Here’s Your First Look

The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan has been teased once again, this time with sketches from the German automaker.

Making its debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show that’s just around the corner, the next-generation Tiguan will be heavily influenced by the Cross Coupe GTE concept that debuted earlier this year at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. Volkswagen has already announced that the new Tiguan will be built at its plant in Puebla, Mexico, or at least the units heading to the U.S. market will be.

Expect the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan to share engines with the Golf, including a standard 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The new model is built on Volkswagen’s MQB platform that is underpinning the Golf, Audi TT and A3 models.

Compared to the current Tiguan, the new model is reportedly 10 inches longer, making room for optional third row seating and additional cargo space. The Tiguan will also be wider but don’t expect it to be heavier since the new platform will shed a few pounds on its own.
