The shots of VW's new Tigger Tiger Iguana Tiguan are coming fast and furious now that V-dub's new small SUV is out and about for shakedown testing. Its lighly applied disguise cladding can't hide what's to come: a split difference between the Golf and Touareg. Will it take the new Acura RDX and recently regiggered Land Rover Freelander to task in the coming mini-luxo-ute wars of 2008, or will it come in further down-market in the RAV4 zone? Place your bets.
