A Look at the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan Interior and Exterior

The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan was recently unveiled, and it’s got us pretty darn excited. Though there is a lot that’s still not known, a fair amount of alterations, specifically on the visual and technological front, have been revealed. So, what changes can drivers expect on the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan?

The main changes to the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan revealed thus far are a completely redesigned front end along with new technology and features on the interior; basically, the model has received a heady styling and technology refresh. The changes bring the Tiguan even closer to the new Golf GTI, a comparison that’s already been drawn thanks to the snazzy drivability of the crossover SUV.

The alterations have been well received; the new design of the model is highly captivating, and who can say no to loads of new standard and available technology? The 2022 Tiguan will be keeping the same engine under the hood as that of the current model.

What’s new on the exterior of the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan?

The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan features a completely redesigned face, which includes a new, sleeker grille, enlarged lower air dams, and sharp standard LED headlights. The result is a look significantly different than the squared-off front end of the 2020 model. Aside from the front, however, the rest of the exterior is similar to the current Tiguan.

What will the R-Line model look like?

Europe will be getting a highly attractive R model, but, sadly for us, that won’t be available in North America. To slightly numb the pain, we will at least be getting an SEL R-Line, which adds a variety of delightful stylistic features to the 2022 Tiguan including 20-inch wheels, R-Line-specific bumpers, and black accents.

The 2021 Atlas has a cool package of its own with the Basecamp.

What’s new on the interior of the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan?

Every 2022 VW Tiguan will come standard with a fully digital cockpit; this includes a digital steering wheel with touch-sensitive buttons. Heated seats come standard, which can also be adjusted with touch sliders. Each model is equipped with the MIB3 infotainment system wired through a standard 8-touchscreen. Higher trims get a larger 10.3-inch standard screen.

Further standard interior elements include a 15-color ambient lighting system standard on all trims, as well as a Fender audio system. A Travel Assist system is available, which can take over the vehicle at speeds up to 130 miles-per-hour using adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist.

When will the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan arrive, and how much will it cost?

U.S. customers can look forward to the arrival of the long-wheelbase version of the 2022 Tiguan. This machine is expected to arrive in the fall of 2021, with an estimated starting price around $25,000.
