These are the first official pictures of the new 2008 Tiguan SUV that is going to be revealed at the Frankfurt Auto Show this September. The new small VW SUV will compete against the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV-4 and will have AWD standard.
In Europe there will be three different TSI motors that all displace 1.4L with 150, 170 and 200 horsepower. There will also be two TDi diesel engines that displace 2.0L and produce 140 and 170 horsepower.
The US powertrain specs have not been released. Is it safe to assume that it will be offered with the 170 horsepower 2.5L 5-cylinder and the 200 horsepower 2.0L turbo from the current US VW lineup? A diesel would also be nice.
The Tiguan will be in showrooms in Europe by the end of the year.
