Volkswagen’s next-generation Tiguan could debut sooner than expected, if reports out of Germany are to be believed.

According to German website Auto Motor und Sport, the new midsized SUV will debut before the year is out, possibly at October’s Paris Motor Show.

This follows an announcement from Volkswagen in March that the new Tiguan would appear in time for the 2016 model year, likely late next year.

If Volkswagen has brought the new Tiguan’s debut forward, it will mean an earlier and timely retirement for the current generation that first appeared in 2007. (A significant updated appeared in 2011.)

A Paris debut would make the new Tiguan the third VW Group model planned for the event, joining the new Skoda Fabia and the new Passat sedan.

The new Tiguan (speculatively rendered in this article by independent designer Theophilus Chin) is expected to take its styling cues from the recent T-Roc concept, revealed at March’s Geneva Motor Show.

The Tiguan will be noteably larger than the T-Roc however, measuring closer to 4500mm in length - compared to 4165 for the T-Roc and 4432mm for the current Tiguan.

As with the new Golf and a number of other Volkswagen Group models, the 2016 Tiguan will be built on the company’s versatile MQB architecture.

Expect a range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines to debut with the next Tiguan, along with the usual six-speed manual and seven (or more) speed DSG automatic transmissions.
