Spy shots of the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan have surfaced, expect the new model to use the same engines from the current generation.

BERLIN, Germany - Volkswagen's Tiguan made its debut in South Africa seven years ago and after a facelift in 2011 the next generation has been spied in Germany (heavily camouflaged).

The next-generation Tiguan, to arrive in SA in the second half of 2016 says VW, will be offered in three versions to boost its sales: in standard guise, as seen in these first spy-shots, in the XL version (long-wheelbase developed especially for the Chinese market) and as a Comfort Coupe with a coupe-like roof line.

The upcoming Tiguan will face stiff competition from other popular urban crossovers, among them the Kia Sportage and the Hyundai ix35.

The second-generation Tiguan will use the engines found on other VW models, among them the popular two-litre TDI and the 1.8 TSI.

Design-wise, expect this new model to arrive with elements found on concepts such as the Cross Blue Coupe along with inspiration from the new Passat.
