Volkswagen Tiguan GTE Active Concept
Even before its emissions scandal broke, VW was suffering from a lack of offerings in the hot SUV segment so this plug-in hybrid concept, representing the second generation Tiguan, was key. Concept cars are supposed to provide a glimpse of exciting future designs. Instead, the Tiguan's bland styling did nothing to make it stand out from the many SUV offerings. The company needs more SUVs, but this one doesn't quite have the luster to help Volkswagen’s turnaround efforts.
