2012 VOLKSWAGEN TIGUAN SUV CAN BE ORDERED IN TWO MATERIAL
The new VW Tiguan is an SUV with design parallels to the larger Touareg with powerful and at the same time fuel-efficient engines; fuel consumption is 5.3 litres per 100 km for the two front-wheel drive Volkswagen Tiguans 2.0 TDI with BlueMotion Technology (81 kW / 110 PS and 103 kW / 140 PS).
An SUV that shuts off the engine completely whenever possible in city driving thanks to a Stop/Start system. SUV that is ideal, versatile companion for life on the move with its excellent all-round characteristics, great practicality, 1,510 litres cargo space, up to 2,500 kg trailer load (with 4MOTION all-wheel drive) and many cleverly designed features. In Germany, the perfected Tiguan will arrive on the market in mid-June 2011; other European countries will follow at the beginning of August, and overseas markets at the end of August.
The front end design was completely reinterpreted. The Volkswagen Tiguan is still the only SUV in its class that can be ordered in two different versions: one for on-road use and one specially tuned for off-road driving. Visually, the two models differ in their front ends (“On-road” has an 18 degree angle of approach, “Off-road” 28 degrees).
Both models now show greater independence, better dynamic performance and more stylistic precision. In addition, like the on-road version, the off-road version is now also available with a top equipment line. In this case, the off-road specialist is known as the Track & Style (on-road: “Sport & Style”).
