2023 VW Tiguan Preview, R, Release Date, Canada, Hybrid, Colors


The current generation of VW’s compact crossover has been around since 2016 but if we consider that last year’s update, it’s pretty much for sure that the current version is about to remain in production for some more time. This also indicates that the 2023 VW Tiguan is about to carry on in the same way. We count on a familiar design and features, though there is always room for minor updates, such as new color options and standard equipment.

In any case, the overall layout will remain the same, which means that you may count on familiar pros and cons. The Tiguan is generally a pretty good vehicle. We like its premium cabin, as well as the generous passenger and cargo room. Furthermore, the ride quality is pretty good, while sound insulation is excellent. On the other hand, the biggest complaint goes to the powertrain, which is underpowered and thirsty. Furthermore, the infotainment system is a little bit complicated to use.

As there are no bigger changes to come, we presume that the 2023 VW Tiguan will hit the market sometime late in the year.

2023 VW Tiguan Design

Design-wise, the 2023 VW Tiguan definitely won’t feature any changes. The last year’s update has brought a lot of updates and things will continue in the same way. You may count on an updated styling, which brings a new front face, inspired by the eighth generation of VW Golf. Furthermore, there are new wheels, new color options, as well as some modifications on the rear end.

However, the overall layout hasn’t changed. We are still talking about a vehicle that rides on a familiar MQB platform, which hasn’t changed much since the initial launch, in terms of mechanics. The ride quality is very good and you may count on a pretty impressive balance between comfort and athleticism.


The recent update has also brought a new interior design, which now looks even better than before. The cabin is arguably the strongest point of this SUV, which looks very premium, thanks to the excellent build quality and massive use of quality materials. The sound insulation is pretty impressive, while the generous offer of tech features makes this cabin look very premium.

Besides excellent quality, this cabin also offers plenty of space. It is one of the rare models in the class that comes with three rows of seats and what’s even more impressive is that the third row is also pretty functional and can be useful in many situations. On the other hand, we would like to see a little bit more comfortable front seats.

Another aspect where this model impresses is the cargo area. You may count on about 12 cubic feet of space behind the third row, 33 cubic feet behind the second, and a total of 65.3 cubic feet. If you pick a version with two rows of seats, you will get even more space – 37.6 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 73.4 cubic feet behind the front seats.


We don’t believe that the next year’s model could bring bigger changes in terms of standard and available equipment. Therefore, all models should come standard with goodies like push-button start, keyless entry, a 6.5-inch touch screen, a six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, Android Auto, Mirror Link, Apple CarPlay, two USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and an 8-inch digital gauge cluster (Volkswagen Digital Cockpit). The list of upgrades should include features like dual-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, an 8-inch touch screen, a 10.25-inch digital cockpit, a nine-speaker Fender audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, navigation, two more USB ports, and wireless device charging.

2023 VW Tiguan Engine

This crossover impresses with its cabin quality and space but things aren’t that great under the hood. In this aspect, Tiguan lags behind Japanese competition. It is both less powerful and thirstier. Of course, it comes with a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which puts out around 184 horsepower and comes in pair with 8-speed automatic transmission. Rivals like Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 are quicker and also more efficient.

As we already mentioned, fuel economy is pretty low for the segment. You may count on no more than 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

2023 VW Tiguan Release Date and Price

We expect that the 2023 VW Tiguan will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year, with a starting price of around 27.000 dollars.
