2017 Volkswagen Tiguan rendered image

New renderings with the future generation of the Volkswagen Tiguan are showing us how the model may look like with influenced from the Cross Coupe GTE Concept.

Spy shots with the second generation of the Volkswagen Tiguan haven’t revealed anything so far, because the test mules have been wearing the same body as the current model, so we cannot really say anything about its design, but with the unveil of the Cross Coupe GTE at the 2015 NAIAS in Detroit recently, we can dare to say that the one-off vehicle might inspire the looks of the new Tiguan.

The two images posted below are actually renderings of the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan which have been signed by designrm.wordpress.com and they might provide us with a first look into the upcoming generation. The vehicle is expected to ride on the same MQB platform, which has been used on the new Golf generation, but also on other vehicles produced by the group. The new Tiguan is rumored to come in three versions, the 5-seater, the long wheelbase and the 7-seater, as the first one should be hitting the production line next year, in Germany.

The Volkswagen Cross Coupe GTE Concept came with an aggressive front fascia, gloss black accents, a tailgate mounted spoiler, a sloping roofline, 22-inch aluminum wheels, touch screen climate control in the cabin, 10.1-inch display, semi-aniline Nappa leather seats and so on. Power was provided by a 3.6L V6 and two electric motors, producing a total of 355 HP (264 kW) and 379 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque.
