New Volkswagen Tiguan 2020: photo and price, characteristics of the crossover

Its success is due to a good combination of reliability, practicality and a high level of comfort. But to stay at the top, you need to restyling often, which is what Volkswagen does.

Volkswagen Tiguan owners reviews
We have two Tiguans in the family, the first is 170 hp Sport Style, the second is 220 hp Highlight. Both give only positive emotions. They are versatile cars that can do it all, especially the 220 horsepower one. The evolution is striking, a lot of useful features, such as android auto, you can display everything you want: navigation, calls and internet with movies. I suggest you stop by the coders and unlock the useful features. The car rides and drives perfectly, and if you do a chip on this engine, the figures will accelerate in the region of 5.5 seconds up to 100 – normal crossover!
Overall, the car is cool, tasty. Comfort behind the wheel, dynamics and economy. I don’t have any problems with the diesel, I can’t hear it in the cabin even at high speeds. No problems with winter starting. The interior is heated up in 10-15 minutes due to the provided electric heater. Heated windshield, badly iced, takes 3-5 minutes and you can already go. Hasn’t broken yet!
The new Tiguan, of course, is another matter – only the name remains from the old one. Took the City configuration with a 1.4 engine (150 hp) four-wheel drive. I see the uniqueness of this engine (exclusively for me) in that with small volume it has the sharpest dynamics of the classmates, economy and lower tax. I liked the dynamics, steerability, noise isolation, and of course, the richest functionality in this set.
About the dynamics of the car: the function “auto hold” is very convenient – at traffic lights you can take your foot off the brake pedal, and then it is enough just to press the gas. But here is what peculiarity I have noticed. With this function turned on the car behaves as if waiting for the forthcoming braking, i.e. the dynamics is slowed down (it seemed to me so), and when you turn off this mode, the car becomes livelier. The car behaves absolutely differently when you switch on a sport mode. On this car it’s straight up sport, sport. I think, that the declared passport acceleration up to a hundred (9,2 seconds) probably is reached just in this mode. I, by the way, drive it in the city most often.
I report that everything works without problems. Despite the fact that in my configuration does not have navigation, but through the downloaded application on your phone, it is displayed on this central display and works fine – that’s such a trick. The display, of course, multifunctional and there is a lot of information displayed on it. The picture from the rear view camera is very clear, with views from the camera switch in different modes (4 modes, like). Successfully implemented camera washer function, works quickly and efficiently – no need to wipe with a finger or rag).
About the four-wheel drive: I have already driven in snowdrifts and say that the four-wheel drive combats on HORA! There is a small feature – apparently because the engine turbocharged and the car needs speed, then “in a stretch” to go somehow does not work, it is necessary to accelerate then and the car goes!

Video test drive of the new Volkswagen Tiguan
The exterior of the Volkswagen Tiguan 2020 in the new body has not changed much, but even in the photo you can find some differences. The strongest transformation is the front end, which became a little shorter and got a slight slope, which noticeably improves the visibility of the driver. The middle of the hood is decorated with very small smooth height transitions and on the sides you can notice protruding ribs and recesses.
As before, the middle of the bumper is filled with a radiator grille, made in the form of a rectangle. It is complemented by several horizontal strips, which are painted in chrome. On the sides are located quite large headlights, also having a rectangular shape. Their filling depends on the configuration chosen by the buyer. Xenon will be available in the base, and LED lighting is installed for an additional fee.
From the side, the car looks quite solid. Here it is worth noting the very large windows, assembled in the traditional configuration, which will be framed by a thin chrome line. The windows are separated from each other by thick pseudo-posts, which are painted in black gloss and merge with the windows themselves into a single whole.
It is possible to notice quite a lot of stepped relief on Tiguan doors, also extending to slightly widened arches, under which massive wheels are hidden. An interesting solution of the designers is that the turn signals here are not located on the rear view mirrors, but on the wheel arches. As in the front, the body can be strengthened here with plastic plates, covering the skirts and arches.
The car is also slightly transformed from behind. The trunk door now has an even smaller slope, but has added dimensions. It boasts such decorations as a visor, which overhangs the window and includes a massive stop lights, a huge rectangular window of the trunk, stylish parking lights of interesting shape and neat stepped relief, distributed throughout the door. From below, you can see the massive and slightly protruding outward dodger, consisting of barely noticeable fog lights, decorative chrome strip, plastic protective diffuser and a pair of trapezoidal pipes of exhaust system.
The update also affected the interior of the car. The new Volkswagen Tiguan 2020 model year received a higher-quality interior trim made of genuine leather, got more inserts made of metal and wood, and will boast an advanced multimedia with a bunch of useful options and more comfortable seating.
Torpedo design almost has not changed. The console also begins with asymmetrical deflectors of rectangular shape, under which the touch screen of the multimedia system is located. Then you can see a massive console for configuring climate options, represented by several washers and buttons.
The transition from the torpedo to the tunnel is made with a recess, which includes several sockets for connecting third-party accessories to the car. Next comes a small technical panel and cup holders, and the tunnel ends with a massive armrest with a cooled glove compartment inside.
The interior of the new VW Tiguan can comfortably seat five people. All seats have leather trim and are equipped with a number of additional functions, greatly increasing the level of comfort. In front you can find heating, ventilation, side support, as well as a bunch of options for electric adjustments. The second row can be heated and is also equipped with a reclining backrest, a reclining armrest, and a climate control system.
