As for premium fuel...good grief. ...
I guess you're right. At 15000 Miles/Year and 25 MPG, it equates to $150/Year ... but it still bugs me for some reason. Maybe I'm thinking I could instead buy two more fill-ups of 87 Octane for the same amount. I wonder why so many of the European manufacturers insist on gas turbo engines? At least VW is offering a manual tranny in some configurations (hooray!) on Tiguan.
With the USD's weakness and VW lacking a US plant, it'll be interesting to see if VW can stick to its pricing hopes.

Volkswagen today introduced the production version of the Volkswagen Tiguan at the 2007 LA Auto Show. Powered by the 2.0 liter TFSI engine from the GTI, the Volkswagen Tiguan produces 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft. of torque.
The Volkswagen Tiguan will be available in a choice of either a 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission options.
The long-awaited Volkswagen Tiguan will make its debut in the U.S. in the summer of 2008 and will carry a price tag of $22,490.
#14 of 32 Tiguan Track & Field
Jan 06, 2008 (9:18 am)
I am only interested in the Tiguan Track & Field, so how could I order this car into the US. Does anyone know when this model will be in the US. Who is responsible in the VW US to determine what car will be available in the US. What are the main reasons?
I have seen the Tiguan in Europe and its dimensions are similar included the cargo area to the Hyundai Tucson. Only the Track and Field has the rear seats mechanism similar to the Tucson, i.e. folded flat completely. My partner and I have slept many times in the Tucson when it was required, e.g. too late for a camping resort to open the doors, or got lost in the wilderless.

Not really acquainted with the diesel but sounds appealing, especially in the Tiguan. Can you explain "after treatment due to increased weight/load on engine?"

This little truck is meant to be off-road. I know its a brand-new vehicle, but if anybody hears about people modifying them for off-road use I'd be interested. Like a few others here, I'm waiting for the diesel 4x4 manual. I'm guessing for the additional cost of a Track & Field edition, you could take it to a shop and get some work done that would trounce what the factory truck can do off-road.
According to Carguide magazine, interior space is officially 16.6 cu.ft seats up, 53.3 cu.ft seats down. For comparison, a new GTi has 14.1 cu.ft. with seats in place.

Does anyone know if the Tiguan will have the DSG transmission?
#18 of 32 Tiguan s/a Touran

Is the Tiguan the same as the Touran which is a model available in Europe now?

I don't know if you are serious or not, but the Touran is a van while the Tiguan is an SUV.
Visit www.vw.com or www.volkswagen.com for more info.
I spoke with a local VW dealer who attended a meeting of the local VW dealerships in Chicago and he confirmed a May 31, 2008 release date. Now when they will actually be available is still not clear. Hope this helps.

My bad! I should have been more specific in referencing the two vehicles as having the same and/or similar engines. I was hoping to share the experience I had driving a Touran in Europe last month for 1600k with the 2.0 TDI 140PS engine but I guess it's not relevant. Let me know when you get off your high horse & if your interested in my opinion.

No DSG but it will get tiptronic.
