Volkswagen released the ongoing Tiguan back in early 2016. They decided to wait for a bit before releasing the car in the US a few months ago. Even so, the Tiguan managed to impose itself as one of the better crossovers in its class. Over its predecessor, the new car has a longer wheelbase, it is slightly longer but it looks more in line with the upcoming 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan. It also features far more advanced tech which wasn’t really available before. Thanks to that, it is one of the better-equipped crossovers out there as well as one of the cheaper ones.

Review and Rumors
The big change with the new version of the Tiguan has to be the car’s platform. While it is quite new, it looks like VW is already going to offer an update. This will likely hit the market with the future 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan.
Just like with the ongoing model, the new car is going to use the same modular MQB modular architecture. This will allow it to be as lightweight and as safe in the case of a crash as ever before.
However, it now looks like VW may alter the car’s behavior on the road. They might do this by giving the new Tiguan a different suspension system. It looks like they will offer better shocks in order to allow the car to drive more like a hatchback.
Also, this time around the higher end versions will likely boast an advanced adaptive suspension system which should make it quite a bit better than before. Its brakes might also change slightly. The ongoing model features roughly the same brakes as the Golf which isn’t really ideal.
2019 Volkswagen Tiguan Redesign
Volkswagen evolved tremendously throughout the years to the point that their new cars look far more premium than they used to. This is also the case with the new Tiguan and we are pretty sure things won’t change with the upcoming update.
In fact, it is safe to assume that the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan will feature roughly the same type of design as the current model. The change will likely come in the form of a sportier version. The current R-Line is nothing more than just a subtle body kit.
This will likely change with the new car which might boast a full R-version. This would feature wider wheel arches, wider wheels, likely a different exhaust as well as new front and rear bumpers.
Considering the past, it is safe to assume the new Tiguan is not going to change at all. Here the car is going to still use the same instrument cluster as before and likely a similar infotainment system.
The higher-end versions might receive new modular seats in the front and possibly a different head unit.
The latter should allow the driver to tweak the car to its own liking without having to go through a really complex set of menus.
Engine and Specs
The European version of the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is likely going to feature a new 1.0 or 1.2-liter TSI engine as its base. This should develop around 120 to 140 horsepower and right around 140 lb-ft of torque. The 1.4-liter engine will also be gone by the time the Tiguan hits the market. In its place, we should see the all-new 1.5-liter TSI engine which managed to impress so many people.
2017 VW Tiguan
|Engine||Intercooled Turbo Premium Unleaded I-4|
|Gas Mileage||20/24 mpg City/Hwy|
|Body Style||Sport Utility|
This will likely offer up to 200 horsepower and it may even replace the iron-block 2.0-liter TSI from the US market. The range-topping versions of the car will come with a 2.0 liter all-aluminum TSI with as much as 310 horsepower.
A range of diesel engines will also be available, but likely only in a few select markets. As before, a 6-speed manual will be available while a 7 or 8 speed automatic will be an option.
2019 Volkswagen Tiguan Release and Price
So far they haven’t released anything about when the car is going to hit the market. Even so, we expect the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan to hit the showroom floor close to the end of 2018. The car will likely go on sale in 2019 which is usually the case with these types of releases.
Unfortunately, we still don’t know the official pricing scheme. Even so, it is likely not going to change much over what the current version of the car costs.
