Volkswagen introduced the third-generation Tiguan in Europe last fall, featuring a two-row configuration. However, the upcoming American version will differ significantly based on the Tayron platform sold in Asia. Set to debut for the 2025 model year, the US Tiguan will offer seating for up to seven passengers.

Recent sightings of prototype testing in Sweden and Germany offer a look into the design direction of the upcoming Tiguan. Despite attempts to disguise the vehicle with a sticker-covered grille, distinctive styling cues are evident, including sizable vents and an integrated bumper apron.

Notably, the model may feature a full-width light bar similar to the latest Golf iteration, with additional stickers hinting at quad exhaust tips and a rear light bar. Inside, bucket seats and OEM attachments suggest a sporty R-Line variant, emphasizing visual appeal over performance enhancements.

While specific powertrain details remain scarce, reports suggest a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with forced induction and mild hybrid technology. Transmission options may include a seven-speed gearbox, with all-wheel drive available on higher trims.

With the possibility of an electrified powertrain, Volkswagen aims to cater to evolving consumer preferences while maintaining a competitive edge in the compact crossover segment.
