2022 Volkswagen Tiguan: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The Volkswagen Tiguan will see its next major update for the 2022 model year. Last updated for 2018, the vehicle remains not only the brand's most popular SUV but its bestselling model. According to VW, the vehicle will offer wider access to its best technology, a heavily revamped interior, and a sleek refreshed exterior.

Although full specifications haven't been released just yet, recently-issued photos show a new front featuring high-end touches like LED headlights on all trims. The model's main rear badge will also occupy a more central position on the liftgate in line with newer VW models like the new Atlas Cross Sport crossover.

Inside, VW says all Tiguans will feature its high-tech Digital Cockpit. The technology uses an 8-inch display on base trims, with up to a 10.25-inch option on higher trims to display vital information, maps, and more. This is a feature that initially debuted in Audi models but has since made its way to more affordable VWs.

Under the hood, the Tiguan will continue to feature a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. For 2022, the automaker says it will produce 184 hp with up to 221 lb-ft of torque. That, along with an 8-speed automatic transmission, are both identical to the current Tiguan. Unlike the larger Atlas, there are no signs that shoppers will get a V6 option.

In terms of safety, VW says the Tiguan will offer more safety features. However, our analysis finds that technology like adaptive cruise control will remain limited to top trims while competitors like the Toyota RAV4 currently offer it across the board. We're still waiting on details on other features like automatic emergency braking.

Stay tuned for new information as it becomes available.
