The second generation Volkswagen Tiguan has been rendered with styling cues borrowed from the recently unveiled Cross Coupe GTE concept.

It's been several months since we last heard anything about the new Tiguan but at least we already know from Volkswagen Australia managing director John White it will be "totally redesigned" and will look "phenomenal." So far our spy photographers captured on camera only test mules wearing the body of the current model so there aren't any exact details regarding its design. However, the Cross Coupe GTE concept exhibited in Detroit at 2015 NAIAS could give us an idea about the looks of Volkswagen's upcoming compact crossover which is why Remco Meulendijk of RM Design decided to render the revamped Tiguan with a digital variation of the concept's body.

The second generation Volkswagen Tiguan is bound to ride on the familiar MQB platform which has also underpinned the Golf VII and will reportedly be offered in three body styles: standard five-seater, long wheelbase with seven seats and also in a sporty five-seater flavor. The standard variant is scheduled to hit the assembly line next year at the Hanover factory in Germany while the other two should follow shortly.
