The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan made its official debut in Germany this week at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The German automaker is hoping to capture more of the booming crossover and SUV market with a series of new products starting with the Tiguan. Arriving as a 2017 model year in the U.S., the Tiguan is the first crossover to ride on Volkswagen’s MQB modular architecture that will eventually underpin other models. Compared to its predecessor, the new Tiguan is 2.3 inches longer and 1.1 inches wider, while overall height has been reduced by 1.3 inches.
