The new face of performance.
What’s the best way to describe the perfect amount of space and comfort, the power of a sport-tuned engine, and the renowned Volkswagen safety, all complemented by a gorgeous new exterior? In a word, balanced. Introducing the new 2012 Tiguan. Refreshed inside and out, it features a redesigned grille and updated headlights, restyled taillights, new high quality cloth seating surfaces, and improved fuel efficiency, all of which make it stand out more than ever. Of course, the Tiguan still blasts down the road with its 200-hp turbocharged engine and available 4MOTION® all-wheel drive, so it can effortlessly adapt to any environment. That’s the key to its charm. It’s designed to fit into your versatile life, and a compact parking space, perfectly.

Getting there is more than half the fun.
Inspired by our belief that the journey is just as important as the destination, the 2012 Tiguan delivers a memorable driving experience every time you get behind the available leather-wrapped, multi-function steering wheel. That’s because while the Tiguan is all compact SUV on the outside, under its hood beats the heart of a sports car. A GTI to be exact. Powered by the 2.0L turbocharged engine with 200 horsepower and 207 lbs/ft of torque, the Tiguan takes you from zero to 60 in
7.9 seconds while getting a better-than-ever 27 highway mpg. It’s the type of power you’ll appreciate whenever you have to get on a busy freeway, and fuel efficiency you’ll notice every time you drive past the filling station.
Every Tiguan comes with FSI combustion chamber of each cylinder. What does that all mean? Well, it makes the engine 25% more efficient than conventional injection engines. And that equals lower emissions and more power. It also gives you a few more victory laps around the city before you stop for gas.
