We must be the last motoring site to have covered the Volkswgen Tiguan, but its better late than never. Volkswagen 14th model series, the new Volkswagen Tiguan SUV will hit the display stands at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September.
Volkswagen says the Tiguan was conceived as a borderliner between the urban world and endless landscapes, right, stuck in traffic for 3 hrs a day seems more accurate.
Volkswagen will be offering the Tiguan with a choice of five turbocharged engines. Three TSI and two TDI engines. The two turbo-diesel (TDI) engines produce 103 kW / 320Nm and 125 kW / 350Nm.
Volkswagen, as well as other European manufacturers have been hard at work to meet the exceptional European emission standards, Euro-5, which comes into affect in 2009, both TDI engines already meet the Euro-5 standards.
As for the turbocharged petrol engines, there is a choice of a 110 kW / 240Nm and the new 125 kW / 280 Nm and 147 kW / 280Nm engines.
