Facelifted 2021 VW Tiguan Spied Free Of Any Camouflage

The facelifted 2021 VW Tiguan features tweaked front and rear fascias reminiscent of the Golf Mk8.

Shortly after our spy photographers snapped the facelifted 2021 VW Tiguan undergoing winter testing, an example free of any camouflage has been outed thanks to Cochespias on Instagram.

It remains to be seen where this image of the facelifted Tiguan was snapped but it appears to be somewhere in Europe and probably during an official photoshoot for the SUV. We say that because the SUV features Wolfsburg plates and the background includes an older Tiguan and an aqua-colored five-door Mk1 VW Golf.

The front of the 2021 Tiguan clearly stands out from the outgoing model thanks to headlights reminiscent of those of the latest Golf and complete with complex LED daytime running lights.

Evidently, the Tiguan model pictured isn’t an entry-level variant as it also features a sporty set of silver and black spoked wheels. Recent spy shots of the SUV have indicated that the rear end will also undergo some changes such as the inclusion of tweaked taillights and a modified bumper.

We understand the 2021 VW Tiguan will be available with many of the same petrol and diesel engines as the Mk8 Golf, some of which should offer mild-hybrid assistance. The updated Tiguan may premiere at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.
