Maybe 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan comes as an unchanged model this year, but it is still beautiful and popular among buyers in the US. For this time, the manufacturer has slightly upgraded infotainment system, details in design and offered a hybrid engine. However, there is still possible to see surprises since we have seen the model only on test driving covered.
- The model is beautiful and modern.
- There is a hybrid engine as optional.
- The cabin has no many changes.
- There are no changes in design.
We have not been able to see the design of 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan so far. The reason is undoubtedly camouflaged that the manufacturer has used on test driving and secretly made changes on chassis. However, we expect more aggressive details, especially on the front end, as the manufacturer has already done in Volkswagen Atlas. When it comes to the sports badge, it is even more attractive, mostly because of additions on the front bumper that looks attractive and sporty.
The model should have a longer wheelbase for the US market, with excellent off-road suspension and large bumpers in specialized trims. The manufacturer has offered larger wheels and much prettier front lights, this time made in LED technology. The rear end is the same, with slightly upgraded taillights and favorably positioned bumper. For most buyers, it is a little small for the class it represents but still beautiful and modern for American buyers.
There is no specific information about how the cabin in 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan will look like. We expect a few changes in design, though. It is for sure that they will upgrade the infotainment system, software that it uses, and few details included. The model should have a Wi-Fi connection, a new audio system, and other performances. There are the original steering wheel and potentially material changes or at least upgrades in high trims.
2021 Volkswagen Tiguan Engine
There is information that 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan will not change the engine at this moment, so it means that we should expect the same model, with possible upgrades or additions. However, 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four is a model that has been good enough for the buyers before, so the manufacturer will not change in the future. With 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque, it is strong enough even for the hardest usages.
The engine comes in combination with the eight-speed automatic transmission as the only option. The machine comes as a front-wheel driving system, along with the optional all-wheel model. However, the engine has not been much interesting to the buyers because of weakness and a little slowness, but the manufacturer has not taken it seriously.
There should be another option for buyers, a Tiguan R model with the same engine and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It is the same engine that the manufacturer has used on the Golf R model. There should be in offer another engine, a hybrid one, as a combination of the small turbo engine and single electric motor. The battery should produce 14 kWh with an electric range of 20 miles.
2021 Volkswagen Tiguan Release Date and Price
It is expected that the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan will be on the market later this year, with all changes and upgrades we have mentioned. When it comes to the price, it should be in the same range as last year, meaning $24,000 for the base model.
