2012 Volkswagen Tiguan.

The Tiguan’s European tuned suspension enables precise handling, while also providing a smooth and compliant ride. With significant improvements to fuel economy, upgrades to the interior and new color options, the 2012 Tiguan exterior now incorporates the Volkswagen family design.

With an anticipated on sale date during the fall of 2011, pricing information for the 2012 Tiguan will be released later this year.

Exterior.
The 2012 Tiguan design stands out more than ever, incorporating the horizontal Volkswagen brand face giving the 2012 Tiguan a modern and sleek look and feel. A redesigned grille featuring two horizontal chrome strips runs between the updated headlights to form a single unit. Striking LED daytime running lights will be available in combination with Bi-XenonTM headlights with AFS (advanced headlight system) on SEL models.

Trapezoidal lower air intakes containing the fog light housings, separated by a new center design element, give the 2012 Tiguan a sporty and attractive new look.

A chrome accent along the lower body of the Tiguan will be added to SE and SEL trims, for a sleek and polished look. The taillights for the Tiguan have been redesigned as well. The new and modern tail light design exhibits cues similar to all new VW models—drawing the eye to a striking “double L” pattern.

The 2012 Tiguan will offer a factory-installed19” wheel option, for the first time. The R GmbH developed “Savannah” alloy wheel and a sport-tuned suspension will be standard on SEL trim level, with the result being a Tiguan SEL with a premium look, and a sporty driving experience.

Pepper Gray will replace Alpine Gray for the 2012 model year, while Night Blue, first offered in 2011, will add depth and color to the palette.

Interior.
All three Tiguan trims will feature interior enhancements. The Tiguan S will offer new high quality cloth seating surfaces in black. The Tiguan SE features Volkswagen’s V-Tex leatherette, available in black or beige.

Customers interested in the Tiguan SEL will be able to choose from leather seating surfaces with driver memory seat in either black or beige.

Engine.
The fun to drive Tiguan comes with the award winning 2.0-liter TSI® engine that delivers turbocharged acceleration and responsible fuel efficiency. While EPA figures are not yet available, the 2012 Tiguan is expected to deliver noteworthy highway fuel economy improvements from 25 miles per gallon highway to an estimated 29 miles per gallon highway.

Premium Features.
All 2012 Tiguan models will feature standard Bluetooth connectivity, aux-in, power-adjustable heated side view mirrors and six airbags-- helping keep drivers safe while also connected on the road.

The 2012 Tiguan comes standard with an eight speaker radio system, and Volkswagen’s touch-screen Premium VIII radio will be available on the SE trim level. Also available are two color touch-screen navigation systems, the RNS 315 or the RNS 510 system with a rear-view camera. Top trim levels will feature a Dynaudio® 300 watt sound system.

It's pretty Obvious what the Volkswagen logo is (a V over a W in a blue background, sorounded by a circle). It's origin is rather mundane though. The logo was the result of an office competition to see come up with a logo. The winner of the competition (who won 50 Marks for his troubles) was an engineer named Franz Reimspiess (the same man who perfected the engine for the Beetle in the 1930's).
