Facelifted Tiguan Spied Sporting New Headlights

The new Tiguan might not feel that old, but it’s just about ready for an update. A photo leaked to Intagram shows us what might be the 2021 model ahead of its official reveal.

Although the quality of the photo isn’t great—and the nose is frustratingly cut off—we do get some hints as to what the new car will look like. The headlights of this Tiguan appears to have gained a curlicue that leads into the beltline (not unlike the Mk8 Golf).

The intakes under the headlights also appear to have grown, which is another VW-wide design move. A very slightly wider shot on the CocheSpias website shows a little bit of grille, which follows out slightly under the headlight, suggesting that it will look a little more like the T-Roc’s front end.

Unfortunately, we don’t know where the photo was taken—though, Europe seems likely—but since we share the Tiguan with other markets, it seems fair to assume that this new design will (eventually) reach out shores.
