The first VW Tiguan went into production in 2007 as the company’s first-ever compact crossover SUV.
It was the German automaker’s second crossover SUV model after the Touareg (a mid-size crossover SUV) was launched 5 years previously.
Originally the first models were built using a chassis taken from the Passat but when the car entered its second generation it moved to the more generic MQB platform.
VW offers the car with both gasoline and diesel engine options, occupying the smaller end of the engine size scale.
It has always been offered as a 5-door model with a front-wheel-drive as standard and a four-wheel-drive as an upgradeable feature.
The Tiguan is the best-selling SUV in Europe as well as the best-selling Volkswagen model for the company since 2020.
Since its release, it has managed to hold onto a perfect crash-testing score with both NHTSA and Euro-NCAP failing to fault it in any discipline.
A high-performance version of the Tiguan is available under the R trim that features the turbocharged 2-liter engine from the Golf R.
This Tiguan R is sat on the same four-wheel-drive system as its hatchback cousin and boasts a lowered-suspension setup and 21-inch alloy wheels.
