    Restyled 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan leaks out ahead of Geneva debut

    Here we have our first look at the facelifted 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan, courtesy of an apparent slip from the automaker's domestic website.

    From the sole image we have so far, it looks like the Tiguan is getting a tweak to more closely resemble the new Touareg, with a new front end encompassing revised headlights with LED elements. The blue vehicle in the background also appears to feature off-road cladding incorporated into the front bumper.

    Volkswagen is expected to debut the restyled SUV at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. Stay tuned for more.

    Based on this one image alone it is starting to resemble the MB GLK. I wonder if the Tiguan will be following the new approach put forth by the new Jetta (ie. starting at a more affordable price to attract more customers.) I like the Tiguan but I know many people complain that the price is too high especially when compared with the competition.
    Research is what I am doing when I don't know what I am doing.

    I am seeing similarities between this, the Jetta and the Passat.

    Front end, of course.
    85 cars since 1975....
    Good night and good luck.

    One of the much better looking VW vehicles. Same that it doesnt come in TDI trim.

    On a cool note though, you can get one on a manual.

    The TDI would really fire up sales for sure.

    I could see a TDI making 26-28 city/36-38 HWY. It would certainly make me think twice about owning another one.

    Will the photographer go on Facebook and write out an essay damning those responsible?
