In a world premiere, Volkswagen is presenting the all-new Tiguan and with it the third generation of the best seller. The Tiguan is one of the most successful Volkswagen models in the world today. More than 7.6 million buyers have chosen the compact SUV since its debut in 2007. The new model will reach dealerships as early as the first quarter of 2024.

Kai Grünitz, Brand Board Member for Technical Development: "The latest evolutionary stage of the Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB evo) forms the highly innovative technical basis of the third generation of the Tiguan. Thanks to the large economies of scale of the MQB evo, Volkswagen is once again democratizing numerous high-tech developments such as the DCC Pro or the new hybrid drives with an electric range of about 62 miles and making them available to hundreds of thousands of drivers."

The new technological developments realised with the MQB evo improve the Tiguan in practically every area. New hybrid drives with an all-electric range of about 62 miles make this SUV more efficient than ever before. In addition, AC charging will be faster in all eHybrid versions, and fast DC charging will also be possible as standard for the first time. A cleanly designed Digital Cockpit based on the MIB4, the fourth-generation modular infotainment matrix, offers the highest level of information and brings digital services and apps on board. The operating concept is designed to be consistently self-explanatory. In addition, new systems such as a pneumatic massage function for the front seats or the IQ.LIGHT HD matrix headlights – used for the first time in the Tiguan – are derived from the premium Touareg model. The new adaptive chassis control DCC Pro2 optimises comfort and dynamics. The latest Park Assist2 generation automates driving in and out of parking spaces.

Expressive design and improved aerodynamics. The compact SUV comes with a completely new design. As a particularly striking feature, the front of the vehicle has a powerful look with flat LED headlights and glass-covered horizontal strip. The radiator grille openings are now located at the outer sides of the bumper, where air curtains ensure optimum air routing. The cleanly designed front end highlights the fact that the drag coefficient has improved from 0.33 to 0.28. This silhouette is characterised by athletic shoulders over the wheel housings (with up to 20-inch wheels). A new horizontal LED strip adds emphasis to the unmistakeable Tiguan rear end.

Picked up my new Tiguan Elegance 1.5 eTSI today. Quite a learning curve after having had a 2020 Tiguan SEL 1.5 TSi 150ps DSG for just short of four years. The greatest challenge is going to be mastering the entirely digital interface especially without a hard copy owners manual. Now it is only available online and you can only access it by logging in to the Volkswagen App. Disappointingly you can’t download it to your iPad or phone to peruse at leisure!. I’m always quite happy with Tech but I think perhaps VW are taking things a bit too far! Sometimes a button or switch is the best option rather than having to scroll through endless touchscreen menus!

You don't need to access it via the app. You can go to the owners section of the VW website and on the right is an option to get owners manual https://www.volkswagen.co.uk/en/owners- ... nuals.html. You just need your VIN so it can give you the correct version for your car. If you can then have internet access to your laptop or tablet while sitting in the car you can go through everything at your leisure. To be honest the digital interface is fairly logical and in reality there is only a limit to what you need to configure and in reality I find (as was the case with my A6 before) I rarely need to touch anything while driving. The one thing I do find a bit irritating is when IDA bursts into life for no reason. seems to be especially sensitive to my wife talkimngh, but a quick press of the voice button on the steering wheel sends her back to sleep

Thanks for your response elan2s!

Yes, having got to grips with things over the last few days I’m feeling more comfortable with the digital manual.

Agree with you about the IDA intrusions on conversations! I’ve now found his off switch and now use the voice command button on the steering wheel when I need assistance,
