2016 Volkswagen Tiguan teased for Frankfurt image

Volkswagen has officially released the first image with the 2016 Tiguan which will be making its public debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, this month.

Volkswagen is getting ready to officially pull the wraps off the new generation of the Tiguan. The compact crossover is still hidden away from public eyes at this point but it will be making its debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, in less than a couple of weeks. The image posted above represents the first teaser released by the German based automaker but sadly it is being covered up, so if you came here looking to spot some lines, you will be disappointed.

Rumor has it that the brand new Tiguan will be following the same footsteps of the recently facelifted Touareg in terms of design and it is expected to get a slender grille, a stylish dual exhaust system, a slightly sloping roofline, a more rakish tailgate, door mounted side mirrors, roof rails and several other goodies. The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan will be riding on the MQB platform and it will be approximately 2.2 inches longer than its predecessor. It will also give birth to a 7-seat version, which will be 7.9-inch longer than the standard vehicle.

Details on the engine lineup of the new compact German SUV are limited at this point but this is expected to get the familiar four-cylinder petrol and diesel burners found on the Golf Mk7. The Tiguan has been in production since 2007 and it is currently put together in Germany, Russia, China and Vietnam, getting a front engine and front-wheel / all-wheel drive layout. More details on the new-gen of the vehicle are limited at this point.
