Tiguan Black Rino: how to turn a crossover into a hatchback

FineAuto

The German automaker is expanding its lineup of extravagant 2021 Volkswagen Enthusiast Fleet vehicles with the VW Tiguan SE R-Line Black RiNo crossover concept. The car received a very low ground clearance and became more like a hatchback.

Named after the Riverside North arts district in downtown Denver, USA, the low-rise crossover was designed by Jamie Orr. The most obvious change is the low ground clearance, thanks to the height-adjustable suspension, complemented by 20-inch custom wheels with matte anthracite finish and 285mm tires, which are about 50mm wider than standard rubber.

Larger brakes have also been added on the front axle complete with six-piston calipers for optimal braking in all conditions.

The “sinister” crossover has received additional enhancements that include aluminum side steps painted black to match the body color, and a Borla stainless steel exhaust system with glossy black square tailpipes reminiscent of those found on the “charged” Tiguan R.

There are at least three spoilers on the back, but they were tastefully done. Removing the rear wiper did not spoil the look of the rear of the car – without it, this Tiguan looks a little smoother. A Thule T1 bike rack with carbon fiber bike has also been added.

Rounding out the extended range of modifications is a CNC-machined DSG gear knob, complete with hand-stitched Alcantara cover.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that VW was making fun of the unsustainable Subaru Outback, while praising its ID.4 crossover. The American division of Volkswagen has released a video showing the all-electric crossover ID.4. The video also shows a Japanese station wagon equipped with a classic internal combustion engine. Using various techniques, it is said that an electric car is better than a gasoline station wagon.
