First unveiled at the Geneva Show, the restyled Tiguan features improvements to fuel economy, upgrades to the interior and an exterior that incorporates the brand’s design DNA.


Volkswagen Tiguan Design SketchThe design of the 2012 Tiguan is characterized by the horizontal Volkswagen brand “face”, with a redesigned grille – featuring two horizontal chrome strips – that runs between the updated headlights to form a single unit.

A sporty look is provided by the trapezoidal lower air intakes, that contain the fog light housings, and are separated by a new center design element.

At the rear, the taillights have been redesigned and now have a design with cues similar to all new VW models – drawing the eye to a “double L” pattern.
