Volkswagen's Tiguan will be launched in South Africa shortly, and these undisguised models were recently spotted in Namibia by a reader.

Volkswagen SA has confirmed that the Tiguan can be expected in South Africa from April and reader Harold Akwenye reported seeing these Tiguans in 2.0T and 2.0TDI guises in Windhoek.

The production version of the latest German SUV was first shown at last year's Frankfurt Motor Show with styling clearly influenced by the Concept A design study.

The soft-roader is equipped with Volkswagen's 4Motion permanent four-wheel drive system, but is reportedly equipped with a range of electronic systems aimed at making the vehicle more capable off road.

Tiguan's engine line-up comprises a range of turbocharged direct injection engines only, including three TSI and two new TDI units that are Euro 5 compliant. Euro 5 emissions standard come into effect from 2009.

These units produce 103 kW and 125 kW and from 1 750 r/min already churn out 320- or 350 Nm of torque.

Turbocharged direct injection petrol engines produce 110 kW, 125 kW and 147 kW.
