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.

      Very nice.
      If it comes with a power-train that enables it to tow 3500lbs, I'm getting one!

      The current one is off my list because of the 2200lbs limit...

      Handsome restyling to join the rest of its sibling's new corporate face!

      The question that everyone is waiting for is: will VW release a TDI model of this here in the US, or continue on with only a 200 hp turbo-4 engine that doesn't exactly deliver that good of fuel economy. If VW were to say, we're releasing the Tiguan with a TDI option, I would be excited - excellent torque and nearly 40 mpg out of an SUV. But, without that TDI option, it's just another cookie cutter small SUV that doesn't really bring anything new to the game.

      Great, the last vw with decent styling and deSilva had to screw it up, too. Now it looks just like a touareg, which looks like a golf, which can be confused for a jetta, which is just a smaller passat, and the phaeton looks like that too, but also looks like an A4, which is a smaller A6, which is an A5 minus two doors, that closely resembles the A8, which is a huge A3, that looks like the Q5, which is eerily similar to the Q7.

      I like the new gruff look

      Styling has improved but I wouldn't consider it (or any other truck) without diesel power.
      VW's TDIs are MOST excellent and are a no-brainer in something like this.

      Not bad....it looks better with the new styling than the Jetta and Passat interpretations of it.

      It may stand a chance if they bring it with a diesel option now that can be had in a reasonable trim level. It definitely doesn't stand out enough on its own in the sea of CUVs these days.

      If you priced it next to the Kia which is a lot slower, the VW is only a bit more cash. The Sportage can easily hit 30k.

      Longtime VW owner...not real crazy about the current styling family at VW. Kind of dull, really...

      A little too much for my tastes. I'm getting a little tired of LEDs and liked the simple, less aggressive front end of the current model year.

      How is VW going to overtake Toyota and GM with these yawn-inducing designs? The Passat and Jetta used to have some uniqueness to them but they are crushed by the outstanding car design coming from Hyundai, Ford, and even GM. I like the look of the Malibu better then the new Passat.
