Even though it wasn’t a completely new model, it still sported some differences to make it appealing for a few years more. But, just like its predecessor, the second generation of the Tiguan received the facelifted version after five years since its introduction.
For the exterior, the 2022 Tiguan designers took their inspiration from the Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport range, with LED daytime running lights that guarded the headlights’ bottom and outer sides. The grille’s crisp lines received a new chromed treatment to make them look bolder than before. Depending on the trim level, the roof-rails were black on S and SE R-Line Black, while the SE, SEL, and R-Line were black. The heated front seats were fitted as standard, and ventilation was available for the upper trim levels. Another welcomed improvement was for the FWD version, which received a standard three-row seating, with a 60/40 split-folding system for the second row and a 50/50 for the third one.
Volkswagen installed standard MIB touch-screen infotainment systems on the entire Tiguan range, with a 6.5” display for the Tiguan S and an 8” unit for the others. Also, the Virtual Cockpit Display was the only option available, with an 8” display and an option for a 10.25” cluster available as an option for specific versions.
