The Tiguan SE features Volkswagen’s V-Tex leatherette, available in black or beige. The Tiguan SEL will offer the choice of leather seating surfaces, with driver memory seat functionality, in either black or beige.
All 2012 Tiguan models will feature Bluetooth connectivity as standard, aux-in, power-adjustable heated side view mirrors, and six airbags. The 2012 Tiguan comes standard with an eight-speaker radio system, and Volkswagen’s touch-screen Premium VIII radio will be available on the SE trim level. Also available are two color touch-screen navigation systems, the RNS 315 or the RNS 510 system with a rear-view camera.
Volkswagen said it will announce pricing later in the year.
