Volkswagen is preparing an update for its Tiguan SUV and the refreshed model is slated to launch in the U.S. sometime in 2021 for the 2022 model year. A teaser photo previews its freshened front-end styling, and VW also says the 2022 Tiguan will have a new infotainment system and additional tech features. We don't expect significant mechanical changes, although the company did say that it's considering some sort of more powerful engine option for our market.
Visually, reshaped LED headlights and taillights will be standard, and we expect new wheel designs and some reworked body panels as well. The grille looks slimmer and more shapely, with VW's new logo design prominently displayed in the center. Inside, the Tiguan will benefit from a redesigned steering wheel and the company's newer MIB3 infotainment system that should bring crisper graphics and increased connectivity options.
