Is the Volkswagen Tiguan getting redesigned soon?

When we received the sad news that the Volkswagen Beetle was going to cancel for the final time, many people around the Team Gunther VW showroom wondered which vehicle would pick up the mantle. According to the automaker, the VW Tiguan has become the most popular platform that the manufacturer currently produces. Even though it has to compete inside one of the most densely packed segments in the industry, the Tiguan continues to rank among the strongest options available to buyers. So, is the Volkswagen Tiguan getting redesigned soon? Yes, it is. VW recently released some interesting information on the subject at the end of June 2020. By and large, most of the vehicle’s updates are centered around its convenience features. Let’s take a look at what we can expect to see.

Technology Upgrades 

In previous versions of the VW Tiguan, the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit has only been available on top trim grades. When the latest version of the Tiguan arrives at Team Gunther VW showroom, all trims will be equipped with either an 8- or 10.25-inch display. The digital cockpit system will help drivers customize the information they see while they’re behind the wheel including navigation information, current speed and the status of the vehicle’s safety systems.  

New Driver-Assistance Technology 

Each model year moves us closer to the dream of completely autonomous vehicles. Volkswagen will be equipping the updated Tiguan with its Travel Assist system. It will be able to handle steering, braking and acceleration of the vehicle at speeds ranging from 0 to 130 mph. However, it’s important to note that the driver remains responsible for control of the SUV at all times.  

Performance Specs 

The VW Tiguan will continue to be powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will be attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Owners can expect the vehicle to make up to 184 horsepower and as much as 221 pound-feet of torque. 

We will bring you more information about the latest VW Tiguan as it becomes available. You can start the pre-ordering process for the popular crossover SUV today when you make an appointment with a Team Gunther VW product expert.
