Class Compact crossover SUV (J)

The Volkswagen Tiguan is a compact crossover vehicle (CUV) manufactured by German

automaker Volkswagen. Introduced in 2007, it uses the PQ35 platform of the Volkswagen Golf.
All first generation (5N) Tiguans featured two row seating and transverse mounted four-
cylinder engines.
The Tiguan debuted as a concept vehicle at the November 2006 LA Auto Show[1] and in
production form at the 2007 International Motor Show Germany. Manufacture began in the
winter of 2007, at Volkswagen's 2001 to 2009 subsidiary Auto 5000 (an experimental company
within a company) in Wolfsburg and continued subsequently under the company's standard
contract arrangements, at Wolfsburg and in Kaluga, Russia.[2][3]
As of 2011, more than 700,000 Tiguans had been sold worldwide since September 2007, with
the greatest sales in Europe, Russia, the United States, China, Brazil, and Australia. [4] (Euro
NCAP) gave the Tiguan a five-star safety rating.
The name Tiguan, pronounced TEE-gwan, is a portmanteau of
the German words Tiger ("tiger") and Leguan ("iguana")[5] and won a naming contest by
German car magazine publisher Auto Bild from a field of names that also
included Namib, Rockton, Liger, Samun and Nanuk.[6] A three row, seven seat version of the
2017 Volkswagen Tiguan has been confirmed to be built at the German brands Puebla
assembly plant in Mexico.[7]

The import version of Tiguan appeared on the Chinese market in 2009, with a locally built
version (aka Shanghai-Volkswagen Tiguan) debuting at 2009 Guangzhou Motor Show. The
Chinese built Tiguan uses 1.8 TSI (118 kW) and 2.0 TSI (147 kW), and has a revised front
fascia. At the same time the import Tiguan is still sold in China, which has 2.0 TSI and R-Line
kit as highlights. The basic design of the import model is the same as the international one. In
order to differ locally built and import models, Shanghai-VW Tiguan is given a Chinese name,
known as (tiguan), and the import one keeps the original letter name.
On July 17, 2009, the general manager of Shanghai Volkswagen as well as the company's
public relations chief and two other executives of the company, died in a company owned VW
Tiguan in a high speed traffic accident.
According to Chinese media reports, Shanghai VW General Manager Liu Jian and PR chief
Zeng Jialin, plus two other executives, were traveling at 220 km/h (140 mph) far exceeding
the expressway maximum of 110 km/h (68 mph) when the Tiguan hit a truck and burst into
flames. However, this has been questioned by "many", because according to VW, the Tiguan
has a top speed of only 200 km/h, and because there is a toll station 2 km away from the site
of the crash.[8]
At the November 2007 Michelin Challenge Bibendum, in Shanghai, China, Volkswagen
showed the Tiguan HyMotion study powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. The fuel cell produces an
output power of 80 kW (110 hp) and the electric motor has 100 kW (130 hp). These figures
give the Tiguan HY.MOTION a top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph) and an acceleration from 0 to
100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 14 seconds.
The lithium-ion battery has a charge capacity of 6.8 ampere-hours and is an auxiliary energy
storage system. Power output from the lithium-ion battery is 22 kW. Battery charge is
recovered from braking energy or the hydrogen fuel cell.

Facelift (2011)[edit]
The Tiguan was facelifted in July 2011. The headlights were made bolder and more angular,
and the prominent horizontal grille bars of the Golf and new Passat were incorporated, as were
the angular lines in the two part rear light clusters. Performance was also enhanced. The trim
was revised, and a three spoke steering wheel introduced.
