As with the Atlas, the new Tiguan leaves us with mixed feelings.

Nine Things The Euro-Spec Model Taught Us About America's Next Tiguan

We spend some time with a Euro-spec Volkswagen Tiguan in northern Sweden and get a taste of what's in store for the US-spec car that launches next year.

Detroit

The VW Tiguan GTE Active Concept combines a tougher look and plug-in hybrid powertrain for the second-generation crossover in Detroit.

Official

The Volkswagen Tiguan GTE Active Concept is a unique plug-in hybrid crossover with sporty on-road and rugged off-road credentials. It will debut at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show.

Frankfurt

The new Volkswagen Tiguan is bigger, and features styling that gives it SUV-like styling, rather than the soft-road looks of the last-generation model.

Official

Volkswagen moves the Tiguan over to the MQB platform from the crossover's second generation. The transition allows the CUV to get larger, while also shedding some pounds.

Teased

Volkswagen released a simple teaser for the new Tiguan, showing the first CUV on the line in Wolfsburg before its debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Report

Autocar says VW is planning a 300-hp Tiguan Coupe R based on the styling of the CrossBlue Coupe. It would be the fourth model in the Tiguan line.

Recalls

Volkswagen is recalling 420,000 vehicles in the US from several of its model lines because the wiring for the driver's side airbag can be torn. If this happens, then the safety device wouldn't work in a crash.

Report

Toyota, Land Rover and Renault also affected

Volkswagen lost thousands of cars and crossovers in the explosion that rocked the Chinese city of Tianjin yesterday, including over 1,000 Touaregs.

Spy Shots

With just over 90 days until its Frankfurt debut, Volkswagen has rolled out the camouflaged, production-ready body of the second-generation Tiguan crossover.

New three-row Tiguan crossover to hit the market in 2017 after a billion-dollar investment by Volkswagen to expand its already enormous factory in Pueblo, Mexico.

Report

VW is preparing to announce a major investment in its Puebla, Mexico factory that will add 1,900 jobs and prepare for production of the next-gen Tiguan.

Report

A 15-year-old boy in Russia is in trouble after crashing his Aston Martin in Saint Petersburg, and then allegedly leaving the scene because he didn't have a driver's license. The boy, who is a soccer player, reportedly bought the sports car with his own money and owned it just three days before the collision.

Report

The Russian auto industry is not in a great place right now. A weakened currency, the rouble, is stinging automakers, and in the case of Volkswagen, has prompted a trimming of production.

Recalls

Volkswagen and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have announced the recall of over 150,000 Tiguans over fuel issues. In the affected units, bubbles may form in winterized fuel that could cause the vehicle to stall. And "a vehicle stall," says the NHTSA, "increases the risk of a crash."

Report

The Volkswagen Tiguan is starting to get a little long in the tooth, and the German automaker is reportedly already deep in development on the second-generation model. If rumors prove true, Volkswagen may be keeping a big secret when it comes to the new compact crossover. Company insiders speaking to Autocar claim that there are both five- and seven-passenger versions of the next Tiguan in the works. It raises an interesting question about the future of the larger Crossblue concept, though.
