2011 Volkswagen Tiguan Overview (See Available Styles)

You have to give credit to the folks at Volkswagen for coming up with not only a creative name, but also for an impressive compact luxury SUV in the 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan.

Somewhere between a tiger and an iguana lies the 2011 Tiguan.  Part car, part SUV, this German-made vehicle is a blend of on-road sport with off-road ability that you won’t find in other crossover SUVs like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.  The Tiguan roams with other compact luxury SUVs like the Land Rover LR2 and the Acura RDX.  The Tiguan seats five and features a total of 56.1 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seat folded (23.8 cubic feet behind the rear seat).

Powering the 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan is a 200-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is mated to either a six-speed automatic or manual transmission on to the front wheels or to the 4Motion all-wheel drive system.  Fuel economy ratings check in at 18-19 mpg city and 24-26 mpg highway.  A tow rating of 2,200 pounds and a payload rating of 1,352 pounds enables you to bring along whatever you need, wherever you need to.

The 2011 Tiguan is available in three trims: S, SE and SEL.  Inside, key trim pieces are made of real aluminum, while others feature a chrome finish.  A CD player and an eight-speaker audio system come standard on the S.  The SE includes higher quality cloth seat skins, heated front seats, a leather steering wheel with audio controls, and an audio system with touch-screen interface and auxiliary inputs.  The Tiguan SEL gets leather seats, upgraded armrests and door trim, and a Dynaudio 300-watt, eight-channel stereo.  A sunroof, iPod cable, backup camera, touch-screen navigation system with 30 GB hard drive, and power sunroof shade are optional, while Bluetooth connectivity is now standard across the board.

The 4Motion all-wheel drive system is great for all-weather traction, while an electronic stability system and antilock brakes help the 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan stop and maneuver without slipping and sliding.  A tire pressure monitoring system and dual front, two-row head and front-side airbags are all standard on the Tiguan.

For unsurpassed German craftsmanship and all the versatility you can handle, the 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV is truly wunderbar.
