Here you will find monthly and yearly Canadian and U.S. sales figures for the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Volkswagen Tiguan is a compact crossover SUV produced by Volkswagen since 2007. It is currently in its second generation, which was introduced in 2016. From Model Year 2018 the Volkswagen Tiguan is only available as a long wheel-base version in the US. This model is called Tiguan L in China and Tiguan Allspace in Europe. Since the regular wheel-base version won’t be sold in the US, is will just be named Tiguan. To differentiate it from the first generation in terms of sales, we’ll still call it Tiguan L on our pages, especially considering the 2017 Tiguan will continue to be sold alongside the new generation for about a year.
