Volkswagen is planning to market one new generation of Tiguan, the third. The body is 4.54 meters long (3 cm longer than the previous model) and has practically the same height and width. It will be launched in the first quarter of 2024.
There will be versions with a motor Diesel from petrol (TSI), light hybrid (eTSI) e Plug-in hybrid. It is only offered with an automatic transmission. The drive can be on the front wheels or on the four wheels (4Motion).
Volkswagen says that the plug-in hybrid versions will have an electric range of up to 100 km (the PHEV version of the current Tiguan can travel 55 km; 2021 Tiguan eHybrid technical data sheet) and that they will recharge faster can use alternating current, but this is also possible with direct current.
The dashboard of the new 2024 Tiguan follows the usual trend where a large central screen – in this case 15 inches – combines most of the vehicle’s functions. This screen and the operating system (called MIB4) is that the Volkswagen Group has recently introduced Tavascan in models such as the ID.7 and the CUPRA.
The Tiguan gearshift lever is located next to the steering wheel, as in the ID or Passat models. The is located between the seats Driving experience control, is what Volkswagen calls the rotary controller (with OLED screen), which is used to control, among other things, the driving modes, the volume of the sound system and the ambient light (picture). Another detail of the interior is that there are no longer touch controls on the steering wheel, but traditional buttons (pictured).
Come on more expensive front seats (ergoActive Plus) They may have ventilation as well as heating and a massage function with 10 chambers that inflate and deflate in the backrest (it’s a better system than, for example, the Arteon, where the lumbar support increases and decreases pressure as it rises and falls ). There is a function that can activate ventilation and heating automatically depending on the outside temperature. In the more sporty versions there are seats with headrests integrated into the backrests.
The sidewalks are divided into two parts (40:60) and you can pass on some lanes. There is one in the rear center armrest (which can be removed when no one is in the seat). extendable and adjustable cup holder (Picture). In the extension of the center console there are controls for regulating the temperature and airflow that reaches the rear seats, as well as two USB-C sockets.
Volkswagen states that the trunk volume up to the edge of the rear seat backrest is 652 liters, but we do not know whether the volume below the shelf (the information we always publish in the km77.com files) is the same or lower. The rear seat backs can be folded down using levers in the trunk. The resulting surface is not flat, but has a slight slope (picture).
The new DCC suspension with variable hardness Pro will be available as an option. This suspension independently regulates the hardness of each shock absorber.
It is possible that these are so-called matrix headlights IQ.LIGHT HD which are similar to those of the Touareg. These headlights are present on the Tiguan 19,200 microLEDs per headlight. Volkswagen has not currently announced whether these headlights can project warning or driving aid signals onto the road.
Another innovative device is an automatic parking device (Parking Assistant Pro) What allows you to move the car from outside using a mobile phone application.
According to Volkswagen, this Tiguan has significantly improved the aerodynamic coefficient, which has increased from 0.33 to 0.28, which is a good value for a car with such a body. There are strange solutions at the front, such as the fact that the air inlets to the radiator are not in the middle, but on the sides of the bumper. Wheels can be up to 20 inches in diameter
