Don’t Expect Many Changes In The New 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan
Volkswagen has been trying for a very long time to make a place for itself in the crossover segment in the American markets. After years of struggling, the company has finally understood the fact that the size of their crossover vehicle does have an impact on the success of the same. With this realization, came the first successful crossover from the company this year. The compact crossover offered by the company had enough space for both people as well as cargo. It has designed to be 10 inches longer and got a more muscular appearance. With such a recent success, there are not many changes that we are expecting from the next launch of the company, the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan.
The Tiguan is going to be the second generation crossover vehicle of the company, and the first look of the same was unfurled at the recently held Frankfurt Motor Show. As said above, there are going to be some very minor changes that going to happen in this vehicle. However, there are bound to be some new features added to the vehicle in order to give it a more advanced and a new generation feel.
Officially, the visuals of the vehicle have not yet been released by the company, but based on the spy shots that we were able to capture of the same, some of the most prominent changes that we noticed have been detailed below:
You can expect the new vehicle to get a more muscular and rugged look. This look would be in keeping with the demands and expectations of the American public from a crossover vehicle. The brand new truck has been made bigger in size. The length of the same has been increased by 60 and overall it has become larger by 30mm. However, we did notice that the height of the vehicle has been lowered by about 33mm. With these changed measurements, the wheel base of the vehicle also had to be changed and the new clearance level of the vehicle is going to be somewhere around 200mm.
Some of the styling changing made to the vehicle includes inclusion of sporty looking R-lines to the front bumper giving the vehicle an aerodynamic profile along with a strong skirt. The hood of the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan comes with charming ribs, which extent right from the front pillars of the roofing system and go way back till the corner svetoblokov.
Overall, the looks of the new vehicle are pretty vibrant
Checking Out The Interiros
There is not much changed inside the vehicle, except for the added seating capacity of two passengers and a new infotainment system. The infotainment system added to the vehicle is completely new and offers many new technological features including a more advanced environment control system. Other than that, everything else is pretty standard is similar to what is available in the current crossover model of the company.
This is the biggest and most attractive feature of the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan. The vehicle has been designed in such a manner that it would be able to offer comfortable seating for up to 7 passengers and at the same time, it will also have the capacity to haul cargo up to 73.5 cubic feet. This basically means, that in comparison to the earlier version, this vehicle will be able to accommodate 2 extra passengers and carry cargo weighing 17.4 cubic feet more.
One of the biggest additional safety features added to the car is that in case of a pedestrian accident, the hood of the car will rise automatically. As a result of this, additional cushioning and safety will be provided to the passengers of the vehicle and it will also reduce the chances of any sort of injury.
The IIHS and the NHTSA tests have not yet been conducted on this vehicle and therefore, there are no official ratings available for this car.
Under The Hood
Just like the interior, do not expect too many changes in the engine of the vehicle. The vehicle will continue to be powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine, which generates a powertrain of 184 horsepower, and is able to give you a torque of 221 pound feet. The power to the vehicle is transmitted through a 8 speed automatic transmission system. The standard model of the vehicle will be available in a 4 wheel drive mode, but on special request from the customers, an all wheel drive will also be made available to them.
