As Volkswagen's new compact SUV inches closer to its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in December, Hans Lehmann's photogs have grabbed a new set of spy shots of the Touareg's baby brother undergoing testing in the California desert.
Based on the Golf platform, the new 4x4 will slot into the market alongside Toyota's RAV 4, Honda's CR-V, the BMW X3 and the Land Rover Freelander.

      Were they trying to fool us into thinking it was the new 2007 Tuque Backbacon?

      WTF did they airbrush those spy photos or something? Those renderings are about as bad as ones you see in Popular Mechanics from time to time!

      Ugh, in typical VWoA fashion, they're placing the Tiguan in between product categories, which means it probably won't compete effectively in either. Just as the Touareg was slated somewhere between the Jeep Cherokee and the BMW X5, now the Tiguan is going to get lost somewhere between the Honda CR-V and the BMW X3.

      Fortunately for Volkswagen, Honda beat their CR-V with an ugly stick (instead of just making it a mini-Pilot) and if the Rabbit's pricing is any indication, the Tiguan shouldn't cost a fortune.

      Looks good, probably the first Volkswagen designed for the American market.
