Yesterday a picture of the new-look VW Tiguan was leaked through their website and for that reason it seems they unveiled it with a bit of a hurry. One thing is clear about the new Tiguan, it is the car for those who want a Touareg but can’t afford it!
Price should not be an issue with the 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan though, since it starts at 24,175 Euros. For that you get the redesigned Tiguan with 1.4 TSI (90 kW / 122 PS) engine, and the design changes and the improved interior are complementary apparently since the base price is the same as 2010 model.
The old Tiguan was a huge success and one of the best crossovers in this segment. The new with it’s improved Tiguan-like design is more aggressive and SUV like while maintainig the old model’s great qualities and value. It comes with a range of TDI and TSI diesel and petrol engines, it is very efficient and it is very safe with 5-star rating from Euro NCAP.
The new head and taillights are the part piece of the new model while the new grille and wheels give it a more luxurious look.
The Tiguan has long been one of the most popular Volkswagens in the world. Its highest volume markets: all of Europe, Russia, USA, China, Brazil and Australia. In Germany, its average market share in the segment of compact SUVs grew to about 21 percent in the year 2010, and across Europe it was twelve percent. Globally, a total of 572,000 Tiguans have been delivered since it was first launched in autumn 2007. The Touareg’s smaller brother is now poised to continue this success story with a new look and advanced technologies.
