vehicle (CUV) manufactured by German automaker Volkswagen. Introduced in
2007, the first generation model uses the PQ46 platform of the B6
Generation Volkswagen Passat. All first generation (5N) Tiguans featured
two row seating and transverse mounted four-cylinder engines.
The Tiguan debuted as a concept vehicle at the November 2006 LA Auto
Show and in production form at the 2007 International Motor Show
Germany. Manufacture began in the winter of 2007, at Volkswagen’s 2001
to 2009 subsidiary Auto 5000 (an experimental company within a company)
in Wolfsburg and continued subsequently under the company’s standard
contract arrangements, at Wolfsburg and in Kaluga, Russia.
As of 2011, more than 700,000 Tiguans had been sold worldwide since
September 2007, with the greatest sales in Europe, Russia, the United
States, China, Brazil, and Australia. The Euro NCAP gave the Tiguan a
five-star safety rating. The name Tiguan (pronounced [‘ti?gu?a?n]) is a
portmanteau of the German words Tiger (“tiger”) and Leguan (“iguana”)
and won a naming contest by German car magazine publisher Auto Bild —
from a field of names that also included Namib, Rockton, Liger, Samun
and Nanuk.A three row, seven seat version of the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan
has been confirmed to be built at the Puebla assembly plant in Mexico.
