Breaking: Actual photos of the Volkswagen Tiguan

The very first photos of the Volkswagen Tiguan were snapped by spy photographers this week. The car appears to be further along in the development process than one might expect. Codenamed VW416, the Tiguan is riding on a PL/PQ48 platform - a combination of the Golf/Rabbit and Passat platforms - one which will eventually be shared with Audi's A4, A5 and Q5. In mid July, Volkswagen released the first official sketch of the Tiguan, which will arrive as a 2008 or 2009 model. Production will begin in Wolfsburg at the end of 2007, at the soonest.
