Just like how the old car was based on the Mk6 Golf's PQ35 platform, this all-new Tiguan sits on VW's modular MQB platform that also underpins today's Mk7 Golf, and a raft of other transverse front-wheel drive models across the vast Volkswagen Group.

The engines are also characterised by gains in efficiency. A broad range of eight engines is available; they have power outputs ranging between 85 kW / 115 PS and176 kW / 240 PS. The drives were made more powerful, yet they are up to 24 per cent more fuel-efficient than those of the previous model.The new 4MOTION Active Control also lets drivers adjust the all-wheel drive system more individually and easier to all possible driving conditions. Thanks to its impressive drive concept, the Tiguan has been engineered for trailer loads of up to 2,500 kg. The assistance systems perfect the vehicle's convenience, dynamism and safety (including Front Assist with City Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Monitoring, Lane Assist and the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, all as standard).

The gearbox range includes a six-speed manual, six-speed DSG and seven-speed DSG. Base engines are FWD only, but all other units can be had with 4Motion all-wheel drive, which works with a fifth-generation Haldex coupling. Along with the Haldex coupling that acts as a longitudinal lock, the electronic differential locks (EDS) integrated in the ESC act as transverse locks for all four wheels.

There's a new 4Motion Active Control switch on the centre console. Four selectable profiles are available - two road (Onroad and Snow) and two off-road (Offroad and Offroad Individual). AWD Tiguans have 11 mm higher ground clearance (200 instead of 189 mm), and there's a special off-road front end with an approach angle of 25.6 instead of 18.3 degrees. The departure angle is 24.7 degrees for all versions.
