Ahead of its global reveal at the 2015 Frankfurt International Motor Show, the new Volkswagen Tiguan SUV has been spied testing undisguised in the form of a scale model. This indicated that the German car manufacturer is all set to launch the 2016 VW Tiguan.

The upcoming SUV has ditched the outgoing PQ35 platform (in the international markets) and is now based on the new MQB platform, which is light in weight by around 100 kg.

Likely to receive the 2015 Volkswagen Golf’s powertrains (which also used the MQB platform), the new Tiguan will come powered by 1.2 TSI, 1.4 TSI and 2.0 TSI petrol motors and 1.6 TDI and 2.0 TDI diesel units. However, the exact power output has not been disclosed yet by the carmaker, which will be revealed only during the time of its unveiling. It is also expected that the Tiguan will come mated with the company’s new 10-speed DSG automatic transmission or the current 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox.

As seen in the images, the upcoming Tiguan will now come with a contemporary exterior design that looks premium. It is also expected to get bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lamps and chrome finished front grille.

At the rear, the SUV will be offered with split LED tail lamps, sloping rear tailgate and a new bumper with a strip of chrome all around and twin exhausts. The top view of the scale model reveals that it will feature chrome finished roof rails, sunroof and shark fins. The automaker has also equipped the scale model with the new 18-inch diamond-cut alloys.

The German auto giant will launch the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan in the Indian market by late 2016 or early 2017. The upcoming Volkswagen Tiguan might be sold as a CKD (Completely Knock Down) unit from its Chakan plant near Pune.
