This will be the last combustion Volkswagen Tiguan, the Volkswagen Tiguan 2024.
This is how we see the 2024 Volkswagen Tiguan. Originally launched in 2007, the Tiguan has been a real cash cow for Volkswagen and is currently gearing up for a third generation expected to arrive later in 2023. The future compact crossover was recently seen hiding its production body for the first time, indicating the hugely popular C-segment model has entered the next stage of development. Based on those spy photos, an independent artist has speculatively rendered the facelifted model.
In an attempt to peel off the camouflage digitally, the artist envisioned the 2024 Tiguan with a mix of Golf and ID.4 cues that were apparently noticeable on the concept car. The next-generation model appeared to be significantly larger than the current vehicle, giving the impression of a slightly smaller Touareg. It also appeared to be less boxy than today’s crossover and had a completely redesigned front fascia.
We’ll remind you that the test vehicle had body-color tape applied to the tailgate in an attempt to potentially hide a light bar implemented on the adjacent rendering. Hopefully, Volkswagen gets rid of the concept’s hideous fake exhaust tips that have plagued other models in recent history. The rendering portrays the 2024 Tiguan with a soft rear by hiding the exhaust tip under the bumper.
Probably the last generation to come with combustion engines, the refreshed model will use the Volkswagen Group’s cleanest Ice to date. Logic tells us that these are being designed to comply with Euro 7 regulations that are expected to come into force in the next few years. The e-Hybrid version will most likely be modified to unlock more electric miles and we hope there will be another high-performance R version. For what it’s worth, it’s already been confirmed that the US-spec Tiguan will get more power, though it won’t receive the “R” suffix.
The interior is a bit of a mystery at this point, though recent spy photos revealed that the 2024 Tiguan will have a similar configuration to the ID.4 with a small digital instrument cluster and the infotainment touchscreen protruding from the dash. Time will tell if Volkswagen is planning two- and three-row versions once more, but the size increase is understandable since the Wolfsburg brand has the T-Cross, Taigo, Taos and T-Roc as smaller offerings.
