Five million Tiguans

Volkswagen has celebrated the production of the five millionth Tiguan SUV, which left the assembly line in Wolfsburg in the middle of January, writes Brian Byrne.

First launched in 2007, with the longer Allspace version added in 2017, it is now in its second generation.

Last year was the model's most successful, with just under 800,000 units produced.

The vehicle is produced in four Volkswagen locations (China, Germany, Mexico and Russia) and offered in the most important markets worldwide.
