Volkswagen Middle East has used the Geneva International Motor Show – Qatar to reveal the third generation of the Tiguan, a first outside of Germany. One of the most successful Volkswagen models in the world today, more than 7.6m buyers have chosen the compact SUV since its debut in 2007.
Matthias Ziegler, Managing Director, Volkswagen Middle East, said, “The Tiguan has been a global success for the Volkswagen brand and this is true as well when it comes to the Middle East. The Tiguan has proven to be the perfect versatile SUV for our customers in the region, allowing them enough space to enjoy an active lifestyle and compliment their drive with high-tech features and a charismatic design.”
Expressive design and improved aerodynamics
The compact SUV comes with a completely new design. As a particularly striking feature, the front of the vehicle has a powerful look with flat LED headlights and glass-covered horizontal strip. The radiator grille openings are now located at the outer sides of the bumper, where air curtains ensure optimum air routing.
New cockpit and infotainment system generation
The interior of the Tiguan features a completely new concept and design. It stands out with its high quality material and craftsmanship. In addition, the new cockpit landscape is intuitive to use, closely integrated, and has a clean and smart design. The modules include the new Digital Cockpit (digital instruments with anti-reflective coating in tablet landscape format), a 15-inch infotainment screen and a redesigned menu structure and graphics, as well as a new head-up display, which projects the speed and other notifications on to the windscreen. A new multifunction driving experience switch with integrated OLED display with its own mini screen can be used to control the driving profile, radio volume or also the background lighting colors.

This is the first time the third generation Tiguan has been shown outside of Germany and its first appearance at a motor show. The Tiguan was officially revealed at the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg on the 19th of September and shown in camouflage at the IAA in August.
