A refreshed Volkswagen Tiguan has been spied during a photo shoot, and looks likely to be unveiled in the not-too-distant future.

This photo was posted by Coche Spias on Instagram and, despite the low resolution of the image, we can see the updated Tiguan will have a significantly revised front end.

The new slimmer headlights have squared-off LED rings around the main and high beam units. The smaller size of the headlamp enclosure, as well as their stepped design and pulled back top corner, should give the revised Tiguan a more dynamic look.

There's also a redesigned bumper with a thin-like metal arc defining the boundary of the fog light enclosure. Although it's not visible, it's probably safe to say there will be a new grille and Volkswagen's redesigned badge.

Although we can't see the rear of this car, the Tiguan facelift will likely also feature redesigned tail-lights.

We also expect there will be prominent "Tiguan" lettering along the central spine of the tailgate, as this setup is now present on everything from the new eighth-generation Golf to the revised Passat.

Under the bonnet, the Tiguan may gain some new drivetrains from the Golf, with 48V mild hybrids a strong possibility for the European market.

If we were to place bets, extra safety features and updates for the infotainment system seem to be sure fire bets.
