THE wave of new-model makeovers at Volk­swa­gen is set to break over the Tiguan. The com­pact SUV has been an Aus­tralian favourite since it ar­rived, de­spite a pre­mium price against South Korean con­tenders, and is now get­ting its first facelift. It’s not as big in the makeover stakes as the Pas­sat, which gets a ma­jor tweak later this month, and the only real signs of change are around the nose and tail.

Lat­est pic­tures from Carparazzi have the front-end dis­guise that points to a ma­jor change, as well as a re­vi­sion around the rear end.

Carparazzi sources say the up­dated Tiguan will pick up the new Volk­swa­gen fam­ily grille and cleaner lines around the lamps, which are ex­pected to in­clude LED run­ning lights.

En­gines are ex­pected to be much the same as to­day, but with ef­fi­ciency im­prove­ments.
