Volkswagen Australia has today announced availability of the updated-for-2011 Volkswagen Tiguan, bringing the company's acclaimed DSG automatic transmission to all variants.
Standard equipment with the Tiguan 147TSI, the seven-speed DSG automatic transmission can now be optioned with all models in the Tiguan line-up.
Paired with the DSG transmission, the fuel consumption on the Tiguan 103TDI is reduced by 16 percent to 6.6l/100km. Both the Tiguan 125TSI and Tiguan 147TSI now return matched consumption figures of a claimed 8.8l/100km, a reduction of 13 percent.
Styling, equipment and safety features remain unchanged for the 2011 model year.

2012 Volkswagen Tiguan
This latest update to the Tiguan is likely to be the last for the Australian-delivered model, with a new facelifted model expected to debut internationally in late 2011, ahead of the 2012 model year.
As shown on our speculative rendering (below), the updated Tiguan will likely carry similar headlight styling to the Scirocco, Golf VI, Polo V, Touareg and the updated Phaeton.
An updated engine range is likely, focusing on compliance with the strict new Euro V emissions laws. An e-mobility version of the Tiguan is also expected, although this is more likely to appear with an all-new Tiguan around 2013 or 2014.
