Updated VW Tiguan Coming to Geneva

2012 Volkswagen TiguanToday we got our first glimpse of the refreshed 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan, which will debut March 1 at the 2011 Geneva International Motor Show.

VW didn’t reveal mechanical or feature updates, but we can see that the SUV gets a new front end and some rear-end updates. The front features a new grille, taut headlights and a revised front diffuser and fog lamps. The rear gets new squared-off taillamps encased in the same covers as the previous-generation model. Overall, the look is more in line with the new Passat and Jetta sedans.

The Tiguan is a world product, meaning it’s virtually the same across the globe besides engine differences. The model will go on sale almost immediately in Europe for the same price as the previous model.

Expect a U.S.-specific Tiguan update soon. For now, check out more images below and let us know if you think this update is a worthy one.



I always that the past tiguan was a bit awkward looking, but this is great. The shrunken touareg look works great.


I was always a bit intrigued with the previous edition but this a vast improvement with the exterior.


Looks good. Needs larger side mirrors for visibility.
