The Volkswagen Tiguan is getting a mid-cycle update for the 2022 model year. As previously reported, the changes are mostly cosmetic, with a revised front fascia, some tweaks in the rear and a more modern interior featuring the next generation of Volkswagen’s infotainment system.
All four trim levels are powered by the returning 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. For 2022, 4MOTION all-wheel drive is included as standard and paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
