Facelifted VW Tiguan opens for orders

By / 7 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

Like the previous model, the Tiguan comes with a choice of 2WD and 4WD and two front ends – one aimed at on-road driving with an 18 degree angle of approach plus an "Escape" model with a 28 degree angle of approach and additional technologies for off-road driving.

The new model also features a new design, including revised front grille and new two-part tail-light clusters.

Six engines are available, three petrol and three diesel. New engines include a twincharged 1.4-litre TSI with 158bhp (up from 148), a 2.0-litre TSI with 178bhp and a 2.0-litre TSI with 207bhp (previously 197bhp). All offer the same or improved CO2 emissions compared to before.

There's also the 108bhp 2.0-litre TDI engine in two-wheel drive and with a CO2 output of 139g/km. And the 138 and 168bhp 2.0-litre TDI units have  been carried over but with lower emissions. The 168bhp engine now emits 158 rather than 165g/km; while the 138bhp drops from 164 to 150g/km for the manual and 169 to 158 g/km for the seven-speed DSG.

Both the 2.0-litre TDI 108 and 138bhp models, as well as the 1.4-litre TSI 158bhp with two-wheel drive are designated BlueMotion Technology models and feature Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems.

Four trim levels available: S, SE, Sport and Escape. All models will be well equipped, with 16-inch alloy wheels, Climatic air conditioning, DAB radio and alarm standard on even the entry-level S. 

OTR prices range from £21,085 for the 1.4 TSI 2WD in S trim to £28,020 for the 2.0 TSI 4WD DSG in Sport trim.
