A compact crossover vehicle, the Tiguan has been in production since 2007, selling more than 2.6 million units in the process. Now, in time for its launch in May, the all-new Tiguan has been revamped inside and out and top to bottom.

Utilising Volkswagen’s MQB platform, the Tiguan is longer and wider than its predecessor, and is available in short wheelbase and long wheelbase iterations. The all-new Tiguan is even more stylish than before, with sleek headlights, a lean and expansive three-slat chrome grille and a subtly pleated bonnet.

In the rear of the car, there’s room for five adults with plenty of legroom for each. The vehicle’s boot has increased in size to 50 litres too; with all seats up, luggage capacity is now 520 litres. Sliding the rear bench forward frees up an extra 95 litres, and with rear seats folded, capacity rises to 1,655 litres.

Among the engine choices available is a 2.0-litre 148bhp diesel option which is paired with seven-speed direct-shift transmission and 4MOTION four-wheel drive. Volkswagen claims that this will deliver up to 50mpg while still being able to handle a full complement of passengers and caravan in tow.

Driver aids will include Lane Assist, which warns you if you inadvertently drift out of lane at speeds of over 40mph, and guides you back into position. Also featured is Trailer Assist, which helps you manoeuvre both car and trailer into a space. All you need to do is decide on the direction and simply use the accelerator and brake.
