From the latest report, the German’s famous automaker is working on the all-new SUV that will be called 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan X Coupe. Based on the famous Tiguan model, the new coupe version will bring many changes over the regular SUV. A few days ago, the new “Tiguan X” model was spotted undergoing testing undisguised and we must say that this model promises.
As you may know, the Tiguan SUV is the best-selling Volkswagen’s car that is also available in versions as R performance and GTE plug-in hybrid. This model has too many cons and some of them are advanced in-cabin technology and excellent safety scores.
2022 Volkswagen Tiguan X Coupe First Look
The exterior design of the new 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan X Coupe will not depart too much from the regular model. However, some styling changes are visible and we like its coupe design. The prototype that is caught shows the steeply raked roof, which is unique on the market.
Also, this model is using the same architecture as the American Atlas and its small cousin, the Atlas Cross Sport. We must say that Volkswagen Tiguan X remains as more on the Audi Q8 than the squished BMW X4/X6. The new Tiguan X adopts an all-new LED tailgate with an angular rear window and integrated rear spoiler.
Volkswagen Tiguan X Coupe Cabin
Inside, the upcoming 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan X Coupe offers plenty of cues taken from the regular non-Coupe version. This model hosts quality materials across the cabin. Also, like the base model, the Tiguan X will come with the same layout. There will be plenty of room inside and because it’s a coupe version, we cannot expect the same comfort as on the non-coupe version. There are 2nd-row of seats that can be slides and reclines, divided in a 40/20/40-split for maximum versatility.
Like the regular model, the Coupe version will come standard with a Wi-Fi hotspot, an infotainment system of 6.5-inch, Bluetooth and USB smartphone connectivity, and a rearview camera.
The standard safety equipment list is long and it includes blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert with emergency braking, forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and much more.
2022 Volkswagen Tiguan X Coupe Under the Hood
According to some reports released a few months back, the upcoming Tiguan X will use some of the European engines. Most likely, it will use a famous 2.0 TDI that will produce between 116 and 240 hp. Besides, one can also expect 1.5 TSI and 2.0 TSI. An R-performance might also be available and expect no less than 300 horsepower. All models might use the same 8-speed automatic transmission as the regular model.
Like the base Tiguan, the X model will use the same variety of driver-selectable modes, including On-Road, Snow, Off-Road and Custom Off-Road. Besides, the new model will definitively be equipped with 4Motion all-wheel-drive (AWD) system as standard. This system features a mechanical center differential and electronic differential locks, allowing it to transfer power front-to-back and side-to-side.
Release Date and Cost
The upcoming 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan X will be firstly available in China and later will be also sold in Europe. From the information that we got, the all-new coupe will arrive sometime in the following year as the 2022YM. However, not all of the details are available at the moment and we are still waiting for its price reveal.
