Volkswagen Tiguan Official Details and Photos

One day after the first images showing the facelifted version of the Volkswagen Tiguan hit the web, the German manufacturer pulled the curtain off the small SUV. What's even more interesting is that Volkswagen decided to open the order books for the model a few weeks ahead of schedule, so if you're into the model, you can order one starting today. The reason behind this is simple: because of the high interest in the model, the car maker has no old Tiguan left on stock to sell. Before you do, however, you might wanna take a look at what has been changed, compared to the previous Tiguan. Visually, there aren't many differences, apart from the fact that the vehicle received the now famous new Volkswagen front end, with the two horizontal lines running in between the two headlights. The headlights themselves have received LED daytime running lights. Engine wise, the lineup comprises the same units offered until earlier this week on the current generation of the model, with minor tweaks meant to make them more fuel efficient: two 2.0l diesel units (140 and 170 hp, respectively) and three petrol engines, 1.4l and 2.0l (the latter in two versions). Volkswagen decided to keep some of the details regarding the new Tiguan to itself, so there isn't any official information regarding the new generation; the reason is the model's presence at the Geneva Auto Show in March. The car maker did, however, release the pricing of the model, so that those who have ordered an old Tiguan on Monday can feel really ripped off. The new Tiguan will be selling for EUR24,175 in Germany for the Trend & Fun version equipped with the 1.4 TSI engine. That is exactly the same price some of you paid on Monday for the old gen Tiguan, but with a lot of extras added. Bummer... autoevolution will be attending the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal shots of the vehicles, as well as for first-hand details of the motorized contraptions presented at the event.
