As the German automaker’s best-selling product in Canada, the Tiguan compact SUV benefits from a mid-cycle update for 2022. The most obvious changes include redesigned bumpers, headlights, taillights and grille. The interior is updated with the latest generation of Volkswagen’s infotainment system. The turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine under the hood remains the same, however. It’s mated to an eight-speed transmission and 4MOTION all-wheel drive system as standard.
