When the Volkswagen Tiguan received its first update at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show , a lot of people believed that it was only a matter of time before a next-generation crossover arrives in dealerships.
We all know now that an all-new Tiguan is scheduled to be unveiled early next year so these spy shots of a Tiguan mule has arrived at just the right time.
Our initial response upon seeing these spy photos aren’t all that impressive. Unless our eyes deceive us, the new Tiguan looks a lot longer than its predecessor, all while riding higher than we initially thought and carrying a bigger set of wheels.
That, of course, is partly explained by Volkswagen’s decision to base the new Tiguan on the MQB platform, which has a slightly longer wheelbase to allow more space for rear passengers to be comfortable, particularly in the legroom area. It’ll still be a five-seater because adding those two extra seats would mean it would overlap with Volkswagen’s plans of offering a new SUV that will be based on the CrossBlue Concept .
The front end doesn’t appear to carry any drastic changes in design, although there’s no clear shot of the front that would lead us to believe that its styling characteristic has been dramatically altered.
