Volkswagen has revealed the North American-spec 2022 Tiguan, expected to reach U.S. dealers in the third quarter of 2021. The new Tiguan will be available in four trims levels, with each offering 4Motion all-wheel-drive system. The photos here feature the SEL R-Line.
The Tiguan facelift made its global debut almost a year ago and the American model carries over all the elements and adds market-specific features such as the front wheel arch-integrated orange lights. LED headlights with running lights and LED taillights come standard. An LED strip on the grille that sort of connects the running lights is an option. Every trim receives new aluminum-alloy rims, ranging from 17-inch to 20-inches. There are 8 exterior colors to choose from including new Oryx White and Kings Red Metallic.
The refreshed cockpit features an 8-inch Digital Cockpit (10-inch Digital Cockpit Pro optional), 8- or 10.25-inch central touchscreen depending on the trim, heated front seats, touch interface for climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel with touch controls (R-Line), and wireless smartphone charging. As you might expect, the options list is a big one and includes a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, leatherette or leather seating surfaces, power driver and passenger seats, panoramic sunroof, Fender premium audio system, and 15-color ambient lighting.
Safety and driver assistance
The IQ.DRIVE driver assistance suite will be standard on all but the base model; it includes Front Assist (Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring), Active Side Assist (Blind Spot Monitor), Rear Traffic Alert, Lane Assist (Lane Keeping System), Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Travel Assist (semi-automated driving assistance), and Emergency Assist (semi-automated assistance in a medical emergency). The base Tiguans come standard with Front Assist, Side Assist, and Rear Traffic Alert, and can also be optioned with the IQ.DRIVE package.
Few more optional assistance systems include Light Assist (High Beam Control for headlights), Park Assist (Parking Steering Assistant), and Dynamic Road Sign Recognition.
The 2022 Tiguan in the U.S. will be powered by a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder TSI (turbocharged petrol) engine that pumps out 137 kW (186 metric hp) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque. An 8-speed automatic gearbox drives all four wheels via a 4Motion AWD system.
