VW Tiguan

We have the US launch details of the VW Tiguan for you.

The 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan, which debuts this week at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show, will go on sale this fall in the U.S., with an eye to providing consumers with better fuel economy, said Volkswagen of America.

Pricing will be released later this year, the company said in a statement.

While the EPA has yet to rate the 2012 Tiguan, Volkswagen said the compact crossover will get a highway fuel-economy improvement of about 16 percent. The 2011 Tiguan front-wheel-drive model delivers 20 mpg in city driving and 25 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. VW says the revised Tiguan with the carryover 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine will return “an estimated 29 mpg highway.” It did not spell out how it achieved those fuel economy gains.
