2007 Frankfurt Motor Show Cars: 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan

2009 Volkswagen Tiguan

As Volkswagen news before said, Volkswagen had disclosed their 2009 new model Volkswagen Tiguan. The 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan will be launched at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show 2007 (62th IAA International Motor Show ), and will go on sale in Europe in early 2009.

The 2009 model year for Volkswagen Tiguan is 173.2 inches long, 72.8 inches wide, and stands at 66.5 inches. It has the modified Golf/Rabbit as its platform and some specifications and attributes of the Touran MPV (which was sold in Europe) have been incorporated into this new compact off-roader. Three turbocharged gas engines and two turbodiesels are included in its global lineup of engines.

The likely engine specification that U.S would have is a 200 hp, 2.0L turbo four with direct injection. There have been plans for a Jetta line having clean diesels and Volkswagen had also shown a Tiguan concept with clean diesel power during the 2006 L.A Auto Show but there is still no news on whether the upcoming 140 hp TDI engine will suit into the Tiguan.

Volkswagen introduces another car technology in the form of the Offroad Mode to the 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan. This is a button found on the dashboard that will activate a raft of alternative safety features. However, this technology will only be available on the Track & Field car, and this will switch on the hill descent control and hill climb assist. It wil also improve the throttle response to allow more accurate delivery of torque, and boost braking on loose surfaces.
