Clearance of the updated model was 200 mm.
Generational change Tiguan has led to radical changes in the external appearance of the car at that style of design of individual elements of the exterior has been preserved.
It is important to note at once that the “face” of new items may have a different design depending on the version.
For example, sports performance R-Line involves the installation of a front bumper with improved aerodynamic profile and a solid “skirt”.
But all that is above the bumper, made in the same way for all modifications.
This, above all, is a stretched almost the entire width of the horizontal strip, which is formed by rectangular headlights and located between the narrow radiator grille with chrome strips.
Such a design of optics and falshradiatora sign for other 2018-2019 Volkswagen models, for example, on the same Passat B8.
The hood of the new Tiguan got charismatic ribs extending from the front roof pillars to the corners svetoblokov.
It is interesting to point that the crossover is equipped with a special mechanism that lifts the hood in the event of contact with him in the commission of a pedestrian collision.

Restructuring within the Tiguan has passed with no less grand scale than the outside.
The front panel has changed beyond recognition, acquiring a completely different architecture.
The new center console, deployed to the driver demonstrates a surprising resemblance to the same element of the interior 2018-2019 Volkswagen Touran.
In both cases, the upper part of the console farmed out to a pair of vents of the ventilation system and attach the bottom of the main screen, a multimedia complex with a side-mounted controls.

It seems that in the new version there will be no second-class seats raw materials.
Good things were and should be with the amount of free space as well as increased wheelbase allowed to extend the salon to 26 mm.
The increase is largely gone to improve the comfort of rear seat passengers who have purchased an additional 29 mm stock in the knee area.
As a result, even the most picky rider of the second row are unlikely to find a reason for criticism, because the rear seats in addition to the convenient profile have the ability to adjust the backrest angle and longitudinal movement.
Roof pre-reform Tiguan was an almost perfectly organized loading space, devoid of unnecessary protrusions.
The new generation has managed not only to maintain the configuration of the cargo compartment, but also add to it the volume.
