Even though it is only set to make its world debut at the Geneva International Motor Show on the 3rd of March, here is a sneak peak at VW’s 2012 Tiguan. This latest Tiguan comes with a number of small changes and upgrades and will no doubt maintain the current Tiguans popularity on South African roads.
The grille has been revamped and brought in line with Volkswagen s other new models and includes 2 horizontal chrome strips that run between the headlights. Those headlights are now available in daytime running LED’s in combination with Bi-Xenon headlights with AFS (advanced headlight system) in the SEL model.
VW also note that the fuel economy has been improved, and while the official EPA figures have not yet been released, VW claim that the 2012 Tiguan clocks in at 8.1 litres/100km highway driving. This is quite an improvement over the previous 9.4 litres/100km, which is not bad for its class.
Rounding off the list of changes, the new Tiguan also comes with a number of premium features as standard, including: Bluetooth connectivity, aux-in, heated side view mirrors, 6 airbags and an 8-speaker radio system. There are some new paint colour options to choose from but otherwise that just about raps up the new 2012 VW Tiguan. Check back here for information on a local release date and pricing once that information is available.
