The first photos of the revised VW Tiguan SUV have been revealed ahead of its public debut at the Geneva Auto Show next month.
Sporting a new front-end defined by horizontal lines to bring it in line with the latest Volkswagen 'design DNA', the new Tiguan is said to look sharper and sleeker than the current model.
Advance sales of the new Tiguan have already begun in Germany - ahead of schedule - thanks to sustained demand for the previous model, which has resulted in it selling out.
The Tiguan has become one of the most popular Volkswagens in the world, selling in high volumes across Europe, Russia, the USA, China, Brazil and Australia.
In Germany, its average market share in the compact SUV segment grew to 21 per cent in 2010, while across Europe it was 12 per cent. Globally, a total of 572,000 Tiguans have been delivered since it was first launched in autumn 2007.
