The car will be presented on March 1 at its world debut at the 81st Geneva International Motor Show.

The Tiguan is still the only SUV in its class that can be ordered in two different versions for on-road use or tuned for off-road driving, as well as with two- and four-wheel drive.

The two versions have different angle-of-approach values, indicating its suitability for off-road driving. The classic variant, for example, was designed for the challenges of urban driving, and has an 18-degree angle, while those who like to use their SUVs on rough terrain can get off-road version with a greater 28-degree angle of approach.

New assistance systems such as fatigue detection, the camera-based high beam headlight control systems Light Assist and Dynamic Light Assist, as well as the lane-keeping system Lane Assist, will now expand the range of available options. Also new in the Tiguan: the XDS electronic differential lock.

Three of the seven engines offered in Europe - all of them charged four-cylinder direct-injection engines - are new to the Tiguan line-up.

The four gasoline engines (TSI) produce between 122 and 210hp. The three diesel engines (TDI) span a power range from 110 to 170hp.

The 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DSG) is also available as an option in the new Tiguan. All Tiguans with BlueMotion Technology (BMT) also have a Stop/Start system.

The new Tiguan will launch In Europe in August.
