    The Volkswagen R performance division looks to be readying a new addition to its lineup based on the Tiguan small SUV. A test mule for a potential Tiguan R has been spotted in Germany, suggesting that VW's go-fast division will soon launch another SUV. The division only February launched the T-Roc R in the compact segment. The test mule looks like a regular Tiguan equipped with the SUV's available R-Line sport appearance package. However, a closer inspection reveals a set of quad-exhaust tips with the same design as the exhausts on the T-Roc R and Golf R. This suggests the same 2.0-liter...
