Volkswagen’s new Tiguan remains capable off-road, with a rugged 4MOTION all-wheel drive system that includes premium class technology for use on and off road. With its new 4MOTION Active Control, the Tiguan guarantees smooth acceleration and an exciting driving experience in all situation and every type of driving surface.
The new Tiguan will be offered in two 1.4 TSI engines with a power output of 92kW and the other with power output of 110kW. The 2.0 TDI engines would offer the power output selection of 81kW, 105kW and 130kW. There would also be the range topping 2.0 TSI with 162kW of power but which would be introduced later in the year.
The price would start at above N$378 000 for the 92 kW 1.4 TSI Trendline while the Comfortline would cost above N$419 000. The 1.4 TSI Comfortline DSG would be priced from N$458 000. The price for the 2-litre TSI would only be released at a later date.
The high powered engines will be offered with 4MOTION drive system as standard.
A spacious interior paired with a significant gain in boot space – when the rear bench is folded the cargo space, at 1,655 litres, is now 145 litres larger than its predecessor – makes for even more practicality in everyday use.
Safety features in the Tiguan includes driver and front passenger airbags, an airbag curtain system and front seat side impact airbags. Hazard lights flash automatically under hard braking, while Electronic Stability Control, XDS transverse differential lock and fatigue detection (Rest Assist) are all standard. The new Tiguan received a five star rating from Euro NCAP making it one of the Europe’s safest cars.
Manual air conditioning, electric front and rear windows, cruise control, front fog lights, leather multi-function steering wheel, connectivity package (Bluetooth & USB interface) & roof rails are among the many standard-fit features on all models in the range.
All TSI engines feature BlueMotion Technology. As such they include Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems to enhance fuel economy and reduce emissions.
The unmistakable SUV profile of the new Tiguan radiates authority, confidence and control. At the front the unit formed by the radiator grille and the optional LED headlights reinforces the car’s powerful impression and upright stance. At the sides, the waist and character lines as well as the eye-catching wheel arches attest to the creativity of the designers.
