Volkswagen Tiguan news — VW Volkswagen Tiguan news — Back from Africa
few weeks back we saw the VW Tiguan testing in the
Namibian desert, but the little SUV is back from finding itself in
deepest Africa and ready to enter the big grown-up world of work.
the Golf-based Tiguan has been dusted off and polished off, and now VW has let
us see it in full production guise.
what we’ve got is basically a shrunk-in-the-wash Touareg that’s so pleasantly
inoffensive it won’t even upset the Greens.
will the engine options: the Tiguan will initially come to the UK with a 138bhp
2.0-litre turbodiesel or a 148bhp 1.4-litre petrol, although two more petrol
engines and a 167bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel will follow later in 2008.
will be three trim options, mimicking the Golf, covered by S, SE and Sport, and
all come with 4Motion four-wheel drive.
prices expected to start around £19,000, the first Tiguans should be
on the way in November, when you’ll be free to head back to wildest Namibia for
some mad off-roading. Or just to tackle the Tesco speedbumps. Your
