The iconic model has been redesigned and engineered to outline the compact SUV segment, introducing a modern interior space, practicality and safety while also showcasing modern technology and connectivity.
The exterior is exquisitely proportioned and shaped, with waist and character lines that define the rear section, striking wheel arches and panoramic sun roof. The interior generously-proportioned, with more head room and knee room than previously – up by 29 mm in the case of knee room – and 1,655 litres cargo space with the rear bench folded, 145 litres larger than before. The rear bench has been upgraded to permit up to 180 mm of adjustment -20 mm more than in the previous model. When it slids forward, the boot provides 615 litres of space. Towing capacity is up to 2,500 kg (depending on model and drivetrain) which is one of a kind in the compact SUV class.
The new Tiguan is the first one to sit on the ingenious MQB platform. As standard, the vehicle highlights fantastic levels of safety such as Front Assist, active bonnet, automatic post-collision braking , Lane Assist, City Emergency braking and Pedestrian Monitoring, while hi-tech features include Active Info Display, Head-up Display, Area View and Trailer Assist. The safety equipment also includes a network of seven airbags (including a knee airbag on the driver’s side).
The model is available in five trim levels: S, SE, SE Navigation, SEL and R-Line. Starting price will be around £22,500 and deliveries can be expected this summer.
The Head of Marketing at Volkswagen UK, Rod McLeod said: “This exceptional new car showcases the very best of what Volkswagen can deliver. Ingenious engineering, exceptional practicality and fine styling sit alongside class-leading safety in a package that brings a premium look and feel to the compact SUV class.”
