The first glimpse of the new 2016 VW Tiguan TDI shows us that Volkswagen is sticking to the same body as is used on the existing Tiguan vehicles. Perhaps they are doing this in order to conceal the latest mechanicals. Even so, when we looked at the panels that seem to fit quite oddly and we looked at a few interior elements we knew instantly that we were looking at the new Tiguan TDI.

As for price, the company has not released any concrete information on this.
The new 2016 VW Tiguan TDI will compete against the Honda CR-V and the Ford Escape. To help Volkswagen close the current gap in sales that exists between its vehicles and the competition, VW will need to undergo some major changes.
