It transfers the Touareg idea of the sovereign cruising and off-road SUV to another class. Just like his larger brother, the more compact Tiguan also masters the ride through both worlds

Last week Volkswagen premiered the Touareg's little sibling at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, the all new Volkswagen Tiguan. The Tiguan is destinated to fill the gap between the large Touareg and the estate models from the Volkswagen Group. There is a small SUV hype happening, and Volkswagen just can not afford to miss the bandwagon.

The Tiguan comes with two different front fascias while they offer three model versions, namely the on-road Trend&Fun and Sport&Style models, and the Track&Field for off-road driving. The SUV measures 4.43 meters in length, has a ground clearance of 195mm and is capable of carrying 650kg or pulling 2500kg on a trailer. Engine options are as follows: a 150 hp, 170 hp or 200 hp TSI petrol engine or a 140 hp or 170 hp TSI diesel (Euro-V ready).

Expect all the usual safety options, 4-wheel drive, a 1.510 liter boot, 16" or 17" inch alloy wheels, Park Assist, radio-navigation, rearview camera and a panoramic sunroof.  More information in the press release.
