2016 Volkswagen Tiguan

2016 Volkswagen Tiguan

The current model is already at the dearer end of the compact SUV class, but Volkswagen has hinted the price of the new edition is set to rise, with a vast model range likely to stretch from $30,000 to $50,000.

It’s part of Volkswagen’s plan to continue to build the brand as a bridge between mainstream and luxury.

Given our VW insiders suggest a Tiguan XL market launch overseas in early 2017, expecting an Australian launch before mid-late 2017 seems ambitious.

The Volkswagen Tiguan XL will be one member of a burgeoning Tiguan ‘family’, with a sportier crossover version also on the cards for a 2017/18 launch. However, as we reported exclusively last week, there will not be a performance-focused Tiguan R.

It’s the right car for the moment – there’s no shortage of demand for handsome, tech-laden SUVs – and a fine way for Volkswagen to climb from the canvas and come up swinging from what could have been a knockout blow.
