The 2024 Volkswagen Tiguan gets a facelift in a design update


The Volkswagen Tiguan will receive a major facelift next year, aligning the popular SUV with the design language of the Volkswagen Golf and Volkswagen Polo.

Scheduled for release in 2024, the new Tiguan model featured a completely new front end with sharper headlights, a larger grille and a redesigned front splitter.

Indicators have also been added to the Tiguan’s rear mirrors, while the SUV retains its unique three-tone chrome accent on the nose.

The rear, in turn, closely resembles the existing Tiguan, except for more extensive bodywork.

The model was largely obscured by black paint that hides the lines, but it is clear that the new Tiguan will have a longer wheelbase than the current car, but shorter than the seven-seat Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace.

A visible spoiler and quad rear exhaust trick suggest that the Tiguan will retain internal combustion power for this generation, before its inevitable switch to an electric powertrain.

The 2024 model will retain the same engine as the current Tiguan, which is sold with a selection of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid engines with up to 242bhp.

When contacted by Autocar, Volkswagen did not comment on the model’s powertrains or whether they would be the final internal combustion Tiguan. A company spokesperson, however, confirmed a possible release date of 2024.

The refresh of the model’s image comes after Volkswagen’s head of design, Jozef Kaban, said the company would go in a design-friendly direction, making more “smiling” cars.
