Volkswagen Tiguan for 2011
6th February, 2011
The 2011 Tiguan’s world debut will be at the Geneva Motor Show
The release of the Tiguan in 2007 marked the arrival of one of the great success stories for Volkswagen.
Practically from the start, this Volkswagen advanced to become an SUV sales leader in Germany. That is still
true today. Now, its successor is about to launch. The reasons for the Tiguan boom are apparent: with five stars
in EuroNCAP crash testing, the Tiguan is one of the safest SUVs, and with its TDI and TSI engines it is also one
of the most fuel efficient SUVs; it offers great comfort and quality as well.
The Tiguan has been one of the most popular Volkswagens in the world. Its highest volume markets: all of
Europe, Russia, USA, China, Brazil and Australia. In Germany, its average market share in the segment of compact
SUVs grew to about 21 per cent in the year 2010, and across Europe it was twelve per cent. Globally, a total of
572,000 Tiguans have been delivered since it was first launched in 2007. The Touareg’s little 'brother' is now
poised to continue this success story with a new look.
An Australian release of the 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan is anticipated during the 3rd quarter of the year.
