Spied: New Tiguan R… Or is it an RS Q3?

We objective got a new batch of spy pictures of a Tiguan testing in Germany and despite the fact that there’s absolutely little in the way of camouflage, this may be one of the Volkswagen Group’s most mysterious test cars.

Whereas it most of the time goes for dazzle camo, VW has this time decided to go with conflicting data. What you see is clearly a Tiguan body, that much is clear, but what isn’t so pellucid is why there are so many Audi bits attached to it.

Those oval tailpipes? Faultless Audi Sport. The wheels? Audi. The Ingolstadt license plate is another Audi identification. And finally, the sound, we’re told, has the distinct sound of an inline 5.

We’ve known that a Tiguan was testing with Audi’s machine since late August, when a video emerged of the car testing at the Nurburgring. Uphold then, we thought it might be because the Tiguan would get that engine, but now the online consensus seems to be that this is an RS Q3, wearing an thorough disguise.

It wouldn’t be the first time that the VW Group went to such lengths. Volkswagen dressed up Atlas study cars like Jeeps and Kias when they were testing. They didn’t own the badges, in spite of, so they couldn’t fully commit to the camo. With both vehicles owned by the exact same group, it could be that Audi just decided to follow through.

It does produce sense, meanwhile, that VW would plug a Golf R engine into a Tiguan R, since the machine fits the chassis. Audi has been working with its Group-mates lately, all the same. Audi and Porsche have been using the same twin turbo V6 and pair turbo V8 a lot lately, so the idea of the brand sharing its engine with VW isn’t farfetched.

Whatever the for fear that b if, we’ll continue to follow this story as it develops.
