Where did the name Tiguan come from?
We get it. Some of the Volkswagen vehicle names can be a little hard for us Americans to wrap our heads around. With names like Touareg, Passat, and Tiguan, it’s really easy to get tongue-tied when you’re on a VW lot. Have you ever wondered where the names come from? Many of them are German translations, like the Volkswagen Tiguan. The name is a mix of the words Tiger and Leguan, which translate in German to Tiger and Iguana.
