If it feels like German automakers accept spent the accomplished bristles years giving aloof about every SUV a coupe-like variant, apparently in acknowledgment to some beachcomber of appeal that had deluged dealerships, we affliction to acquaint you the trend does not assume to be abating. And it appears it’s not bedfast to affluence models awash in the U.S. If there is one affair we can be abiding of back it comes to German automakers, it’s that entries in new niches rarely go changing by competitors.
Enter the Tiguan X, a coupe-like adaptation of the long-wheelbase Tiguan SUV activity on auction in 2021, aloof not here. Rather, Volkswagen affairs to action this archetypal alone in China for now, area five- and seven-seat versions of the Tiguan are produced for the calm market. By comparison, the Tiguan is offered stateside alone in long-wheelbase form.
The Tiguan X will booty the long-wheelbase alternative and accord it a abandoned roof while addition the SUV a few added inches in the process.
The aftereffect appears added like a action account auto back beheld in contour rather than a coupe, conceivably attributable to the continued wheelbase of the approved Tiguan SUV basement this variant, and it doesn’t attending like it robs the rear-seat cartage of any cogent headroom. The Tiguan X’s all-embracing breadth additionally does not arise to rob the burden alcove of too abundant usability, admitting it’s bright this isn’t necessarily the Tiguan you would aces to booty some furniture.
Volkswagen’s abounding 2.0-liter four-cylinder admiral the Tiguan X, commutual with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, so it’s not aiming at the added achievement which sometimes accompanies affluence SUV coupes. And confined up a austere addition in application isn’t absolutely what this exercise is about. Rather, it’s added about appearance and some exceptional appearance inside; we apprehend the Tiguan X to be offered alone in top trim flavors, compared to its SUV siblings.
If you’re agog for an SUV with a coupe-like contour from a VW Group brand, agenda that the accessible Audi Q3 Sportback will not be offered stateside either, but the Q5 Sportback, due to access assembly abutting year, has not been definitively disqualified out. If it makes its way here, it’s activity to attempt with the brand of the Mercedes-Benz GLC Auto and the BMW X4.
