The Volkswagen Tiguan concept which was unveiled at the 2006 LA Motor show was a thinly disguised production model small-SUV which will sit under the Volkswagen Touareg in VW's lineup.

The production version of the Tiguan, was revealed in 2007, and the road-going model is almost identical to the concept, with the exception of the orange highlighted wheels and paintwork.

The Tiguan is a development of a previous Volkswagen concept, the Volkswagen Concept A shown at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, and both vehicles have a similar aesthetic design, although the Tiguan displays a far more practical shape than the fastback styled Concept A.

At the rear of the Volkswagen Tiguan, the taillights have been integrated into the shoulder section in a manner similar to those found on the Volkswagen Eos (See Volkswagen Concept C and Passat.

Inside, the Tiguan concept has been appointed with a similar black, silver and orange color scheme as that found on the exterior. Furthermore the orange tread pattern of the wheels is emblazoned on the vintage style black leather seats. A panoramic sunroof brings light to the interior which can seat up to five occupants. A folding rear bench seat allows the interior to be configured for hauling cargo or people.

Powering the Volkswagen Tiguan concept is an entirely new type of diesel engine called BLUETEC. The engine, developed in partnership with Audi and Mercedes-Benz, is designed to significantly reduce emissions by using nitrogen oxide storage catalytic converters to reduce nitrogen oxide by up to 90% over conventional diesels.
