2006 L.A. Auto Show: VW Tiguan Concept


We hate the name but everything else about this concept sure looks good. What is a Tiguan you ask? It’s Volkswagen’s attempt at a compact SUV to be slated above a Honda CR-V but below a BMW X3. The company calls it a “small Touareg” but that’s not really accurate. The Touareg is based on the same platform as the Porsche Cayenne while the Tiguan is based on the VW Golf, a small economy car. The concept is powered by a clean diesel engine.

If the Tiguan makes it to production — and all indicators say it will — it should sell well. We’re a bit surprised VW didn’t come out with something like this sooner. More on the Tiguan later today.
