With over six million sold worldwide since its launch in 2007, the Tiguan is the leading light for Volkswagen’s success in SUVs. Brian Luckie, Tiguan Product Manager at Volkswagen UK, said: “The Tiguan is the Volkswagen Group’s biggest-selling model worldwide, and one of the UK’s favourite SUVs, so an enhanced version with even more technology, connectivity and style should bolster its already strong positioning. Its sophisticated and premium new look also reflects the rest of the Volkswagen family, with a sleek new front being the highlight.
The new MIB3 infotainment system is a prominent feature for the Tiguan with an 8-inch touch screen, DAB+, and streaming and internet capabilities. The R-Line gets 30-colour ambient lighting, heated front seats and the Digital Cockpit Pro dashboard instrument panel, and also has keyless entry and start. Comfort and convenience is improved with height adjustment for the front seats, dusk and rain sensors, a leather-wrapped gear shifter and multifunction steering wheel, and electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors.
Of these top trims, the 2.0-litre TDI in both Elegance and R-Line are the fastest with an identical top speeds of 134 mph, and 0-62 mph sprint times of 7.5 seconds. With the entry level 1.5 TSI engine having a top speed of 121mph and 0-62 mph in 10.9 seconds.
