So far Volkswagen had only released three images of the new facelifted 2012 Tiguan. Now apparently they found dome spare time and took the car out for a photoshoot. It does look good.
Getting closer to the Touareg style, means the Tiguan has become more manly and muscular and therefore more sporty. The car gets a revised range of TSI and TDI powertrains as well. The petrol powered engines offer 90 kW / 122 PS and 155 kW / 210 PS and the diesels 81 kW / 110 PS to 125 kW / 170 PS. They’re all fitted with BlueMotion and start/stop technology for maximum efficiency.
What’s more you can order VW’s 7-speed dual-clutch DSG for the Tiguan as well which enhances the fuel economy even further.
The Tiguan is more of a city crossover and you can’t expect off-road capability equal to the Touareg from it. Still, it’s not that afraid of rough surfaces thanks to XDS differential or Track and Style off-road package that adds items like underguards. It is also well equipped with latest high-tech stuff such as fatigue detection, Lane Assist and Dynamic Light Beam Assist.
2012 Volkswagen Toguan has a starting price of 24,175 Euro.
