The Volkswagen Tiguan provides a comfortable ride in its spacious cabin, as well as plenty of luggage capacity. This smartly-styled mid-sized crossover is also economical to run and is off-road-capable.
Well-built and crisply designed, the Tiguan features lightweight and stylish 17-inch alloy wheels, a chrome-trimmed three-louvre front grille and black roof rails. Labour-saving fixtures include a remotely operated tailgate, a heated rear windscreen and electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors that come with integrated indicators. Further illumination includes automatic follow-me-home headlights, LED rear number-plate lighting and a high-level brake light.
A roomy five-person cabin provides height-adjustable front seats, and a rake-and-reach-adjustable three-spoke steering wheel which is also leather-trimmed. Other standard features include electric front and rear windows, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, air conditioning, three-zone climate control and a 12-volt power point. An illuminated 502-litre luggage space can be expanded to 1,542 litres with the rear seats folded.
A 2.0-litre 84kW diesel engine is the most fuel-efficient option available for the Tiguan, returning as much as 4.7 l/100km and CO2 emissions as low as 123g/km. For optimal performance, a 1.4-litre 111kW petrol unit delivers 0-100km/h in approximately 9.7 seconds (0-80km/h in roughly 7.8 seconds), while still returning up to 5.7 l/100km. Each option is paired with six-speed manual transmission.
An eight-speaker sound system (with a CD player and DAB radio), USB, SD and AUX inputs and an eight-inch colour touchscreen display are all included as standard. The Tiguan comes with Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star rating, and among its driver aids are Electronic Stability Control, Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Assist System. Passive safety features include a rigid safety cell (with strategically placed crumple zones), multiple airbags, ISOFIX child-seat preparation and three-point seatbelts.
If you require an SUV that is big enough for comfort but compact enough to weave in and out of traffic, the Tiguan could be just what you are looking for. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to book a test drive.
