Volkswagen's Concept Tiguan is a dressed-up prototype, looking a lot like a shrunken Touareg, that is set to hit dealership floors towards the end of next year. Tiguan is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine using VW's next-generation clean TDI technology. The vehicle also uses several components of the Bluetec emissions system co-developed by Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen. The automaker expects the diesel to be available in all 50 states when it goes on sale in the US. Volkswagen also plans to offer a gasoline engine for the vehicle.
A key design cue for Concept Tiguan are the trick 19-inch tires developed by Continental that feature an orange stripe beneath the tire profile that matches the paint color of the Concept Tiguan. Other exterior details include a more pronounced grill, aggressive fog lamps and its blinding orange color.
