In mid-January 2019, the next Tiguan crossover was assembled at the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg. It is the 5 millionth car in the history of the model.
The Volkswagen Tiguan has been produced since 2007. Now its second generation is on the market. The crossover is certainly in demand in all markets which it officially supplied to.
The 7-seat Tiguan Allspace added popularity to the model. Introduced in 2017, it became 220 mm longer, though only kids or passengers of short stature will feel comfortable on the rear seats.
In 2018 alone, four Volkswagen car plants in different parts of the world produced more than 800,000 Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace vehicles.
Each of 12 years, during which VW produced the model, showed sales growth. 120,000 units went off the assembly line in 2007, in 2015 there were already more than 500,000 units.
Arrival of the second-generation Tiguan spurred consumer interest. In 2017, sales amounted to 700,000 units, in 2018 – almost 800,000.
It is worth noting that the next-generation crossover in terms of its equipment and quality can easily compete with the premium segment models – BMW X1 and Audi Q3.
The starting price for the current Tiguan is from £23,990 in the UK, €27.775 in Germany and $25,245 in the USA.
