Official Pics: VW Tiguan

Posted Image

After teasing a few weeks ago with photos of the new Tiguan undergoing final testing in Africa, sans badges, Volkswagen has now given us official photos of the production model. The world at large will get to see the new crossover in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but in the meantime you can enjoy a high-res gallery right here.

WAAAAAY too borrowed. I love the front end. It's expressive and sexy somehow. But A pillar back, I see RDX, and every other small CUV. And the rear looks like a swollen GTI/ Rabbit /Golf. I want that front end on a Jetta MCE.

And BTW... German interiors are getting to businessy... they end up looking fussy and overly puposeful. That interior just doesnt seem like a fun place to be.

Meh...it's ok. The front is good. But the beltline is too low, and the rear seems like it was snubbed off.

Interior-wise, the center stack is really the only thing that doesn't look good. I like the 2-tone.

I think it'll do well. It makes more sense than the overengineered, overweight tank that is the Touareg. This will be especially sweet if it arrives in the US with the Jetta's 50-state diesel.

BTW, I've checked out a Qashqai in a Belgium Nissan dealership, and it looks competitive. The small SUV segment really is hotting up.

First impression: Its nicer than I thought it would turn out. Much nicer than the gaudy, orange concept version (which I thought was pretty ugly). I like the tail-lamps.

Agreed. I've seen this CUV a million times before they even built the prototype.

Won't sell. It's not special enough, it's not in a market people are used to seeing VW play in, and VW has a rep for poor quality and terrible dealers.

bingo. nothing about this is different, cool, or cute enough for the market VW is chasing.

I don't know.......I'd much rather have one of these than a RAV4 or CR-V......(or even a LR LR2.)

Oh me too.... but I'd rather have the new Vue over the Tiquan so I don't have to know my service adviser on first name basis.

Isn't that being a TAD presumptuous for a new model that hasn't even hit the market before?

Indeed. Remember the Golden Rule.

We certainly don't want people to make the same presumptions about GM cars.
