Last time, we saw heavily camouflaged models from a distance. This time around, the camo is basically the same but the shots are more detailed. Among other things, we see the headlights much more clearly, and they look very similar to the CrossBlue units.
We expect this SUV to show up with a V6, probably the 3.6-liter unit from the current Passat, but a 2.0-liter turbo gas engine and a hybrid model are also likely. Front- and all-wheel drive versions are expected. Want a diesel? It's probably not coming, given the state of things in the US regarding all things diesel right now.
Though we're also expecting a three-row version of the refreshed Tiguan to come to the US in 2017, the model in these shots will sit at the top of the VW SUV heap. Size-wise, it'll be similar to the Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer, and Toyota Highlander. Whatever VW officially names this SUV, it should go on sale early next year.
