The year 2020 will definitely bring some news from the popular German carmaker as well, especially when it comes to its market of SUVs. Besides its well-known Atlas, it seems that the Volkswagen Tiguan should be also expected to hit the roads as a 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan model, although little has been confirmed at the moment.
- affordable price, .
- possible plug-in hybrid available.
- lots of information still not confirmed.
Since the VW Tiguan has received some serious updates for the year 2018, its exterior design can be described as quite fresh. Therefore, we should probably not expect any revolutionary changes when it comes to styling of this 2020 SUV. Instead, this new midsize crossover will rather keep that recognizable shape and look, combining those rugged and elegant features pretty well. Also, the 2018 model got that 10-inch longer wheelbase that enables more space for you and your passengers, but also the cargo. The new Tiguan will probably ride on the same platform, but the carmaker might use some carbon fiber elements in order to save its weight as much as possible. The styling of this muscular SUV has often been compared to its cousin Atlas, which will probably be the case with the upcoming 2020 vehicles. It has also been said that we should expect one new body paint option at least.
When it comes to interior of the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan, lots of information about this section haven’t been confirmed either. Its previously extended dimensions will allow more space inside the cabin, so you should expect some quite roomy and comfortable interior. Being the 2020 model, the new Tiguan should employ some high-quality materials inside and show some serious changes and updates in terms of technology and safety as well. The driver will get a smaller information display in the instrument cluster and a larger, probably a 12.3-inch infotainment touch-screen in the center console. Also, its safety systems and driver assist features would include adaptive cruise control, parking camera system, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking and others.
No major changes should probably be expected when it comes to regular version of the 2020 VW Tiguan. This model might keep its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, which delivers the output of 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, a rumor has it that the carmaker might release a plug-in version as well. It could come with a 1.4-liter gasoline engine combined with an electric motor and a battery pack. However, we are waiting for more official information at the moment.
2020 Volkswagen Tiguan Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2020 VW Tiguan has definitely been a mystery. Its price will start under $30,000 while the plug-in hybrid version should be more expensive.
