From Volkswagen press: The 2012 Tiguan design stands out more than ever, incorporating the horizontal Volkswagen brand face giving the 2012 Tiguan a modern and sleek look and feel. A redesigned grille featuring two horizontal chrome strips runs between the updated headlights to form a single unit. Striking LED daytime running lights will be available in combination with Bi-XenonTM headlights with AFS (advanced headlight system) on SEL models. Trapezoidal lower air intakes containing the fog light housings, separated by a new center design element, give the 2012 Tiguan a sporty and attractive new look.
The fun to drive Tiguan comes with the award winning 2.0-liter TSI® engine that delivers turbocharged acceleration and responsible fuel efficiency. While EPA figures are not yet available, the 2012 Tiguan is expected to deliver noteworthy highway fuel economy improvements from 25 miles per gallon highway to an estimated 29 miles per gallon highway.
All three Tiguan trims will feature interior enhancements. The Tiguan S will offer new high quality cloth seating surfaces in black. The Tiguan SE features Volkswagen’s V-Tex leatherette, available in black or beige. Customers interested in the Tiguan SEL will be able to choose from leather seating surfaces with driver memory seat in either black or beige.
