"They are coming! They are coming!"
Looks like someone at VW listens to customers - maybe.
Just like my request several months ago it looks like they will put it together with the right stuff: Tiguan XL (@ 2" wider and 20" longer) 2.0L TDI 200 HP and 7 spd DSG, 4motion, Touchscreen Navigation, Dynaudio Premium 10 speaker audio, 7 seats (with two being tight), 20" wheel option (or at least 19"), Xenon director headlights, LED running lights, Sirius and HD radio, CD and USB interfaces, Dual Zone Auto AC < $40K
(Ok, I made some of it up, but if you want us to spend money VW, make the right stuff.)
And he said, "Go forth and spend money."
