Volkswagen’s new Tiguan SUV will make it’s public debut in September at the 2007 Frankfurt International Motor Show, but here we have some official press photos to look at before it’s public debut.
Five engine options are available – three TSI gasoline engines and two TDI turbodiesel engines. The two new TDI engines have two outputs – 140hp and 170hp with 320Nm or 350Nm of torque respectively churned out at 1,750rpm. They meet Euro 5 emission standards.
The TSI engines are of 150hp, 170hp and 200hp variants and thanks to turbocharging they all make healthy amounts of torque, with the base 150hp model putting out 240Nm of torque from a low 1,750rpm, matching diesel levels of torque achievable at low ends of the rev range. The more powerful TSI models both make 280Nm from 1,800rpm.
The Tiguan is supposed to have Audi and Porsche brothers as it would only make sense, but only the Audi Q5 has been confirmed so far, with Porsche denying any plans to make a baby Cayenne based on the Tiguan-Q5 platform.
