The Volkswagen Tiguan is VW's next best hope to bring volume to the US market, and the German automaker is pulling out all the stops. First, VW priced it at $22,000, which is a welcome change from the excessive bounties needed to secure many other Volkswagens. VW also intends to parther the 2.0T base car with a 40 mpg diesel model. Sure, so it has a ridiculous and forgettable name, but it looks pretty good, and the interior is terrific.

The video posted after the jump shows how the small CUV was designed with clay, hand tools, and a crazy-looking automated mill that looks like some kind of James Bond torture device. Hit the jump to view it. It's pretty interesting to see these craftsmen applying their trade using some of the most basic tools to create something so complex.
