Volkswagen Tiguan facelift gets styling tweaks, more tech

After the Volkswagen Golf received a new iteration that was released a few months ago, it’s its Tiguan SUV sibling’s turn to get a facelift that ties it in with the rest of the family’s styling language. Enter the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan.

The headlights on this update are new, as are the taillights. The bumpers fore and aft have been revised as well. And buyers can get wheel sizes that range from 17-inchers all the way to 20s, depending on the trim level.

The inside also gets a redesigned steering wheel, along with a central touchscreen that now features the latest MIB3 infotainment system. All Tiguan variants also get a fully digital instrument cluster that starts out with an 8-inch display and goes as large as 10 inches.

Speaking of tech, the 2022 Tiguan gets the Travel Assist feature that comes with goodies like adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, as well as lane keep assist. The safety suite is available as standard on higher spec variants while optional on lower trim levels.

Buyers have a choice of engines that range from the base 2.0-liter turbo four that produces 184bhp and 221lb-ft of torque, to a plug-in hybrid that puts out 241bhp, all the way to the R that is good for 315 horses. There seems to be a Tiguan for every type of driver.

The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan will go on sale in Europe beginning next month.
