Volkswagen has shown off the mid-size SUV, the Tiguan, at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Volkswagen gave the vehicle a facelift, which includes changes in numerous areas such as the exterior, interior, and the engine range. The vehicle first came out in the market in 2007 so a facelift was to be expected.
The Tiguan is now offered with three new engines. The most appealing one is a 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline unit that has an output of 210hp. This engine has also been used to power the Golf GTI.
The exterior revisions are found on many areas of the car but they’re focused on the front end. Volkswagen has given the Tiguan the horizontal VW face, which includes a redesigned grille with two horizontal chrome stripes and fresh headlights.
The fog lights are housed in the trapezoidal lower air intakes. They are separated by a new center element that gives the vehicle a dynamic appearance.
The Tiguan also now has a sporty image, the result of the new design of the taillights. Regardless of the trim level, the interior has been fitted with enhanced materials. The car also features Bluetooth connectivity, aux-in, power-adjustable heated side view mirrors and six airbags. The revamped Tiguan is priced from EUR24,175 (the German market price).
