The new VW Tiguan family workhorse is on sale now with a choice of five different trim levels ─ S, SE, SE Nav, SEL and R-Line ─ and seven different engines, with prices starting from £22,510 for the entry-level model.
A 2.0-litre TDI with 150PS can be had with 4Motion all-wheel drive and a seven-speed DSG automatic or front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual gearbox. That and a 2.0-litre TSI petrol are expected to represent the bulk of sales in the UK.
Fuel economy ranges from 58.9mpg for the 2.0 TDI 150 PS front-wheel drive down to 38.2mpg for the 2.0 TSI 180PS 4Motion, while CO2 emissions come in at between 125g/km and 170g/km, respectively.
Standard equipment across all Tiguan models includes Front Assist, City Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Monitoring. Optional extras previously unavailable on the Tiguan include a Head-Up Display and Trailer Assist.
The new VW Tiguan is 33mm lower than the outgoing, 30mm wider and 60mm longer, while the wheelbase has increased by 77mm, resulting in 29mm more knee room. Design wise, the car has a more sleek look.
Meanwhile the boot is 145 litres bigger, at a total of 1,655 litres with the rear bench folded flat and 615 litres with said rear bench slid to its most forward position. Up to 180mm of adjustment is available, 20mm more than the outgoing Tiguan.
As for optional extras, there are many of them. Luxury carpet mats? £85. Barrier to keep your pets in the boot? £210 fitted. Bicycle holder? £103 fitted. CobraTrak Plus vehicle tracking system in case your car goes walkies? £536.
There are also some style-oriented upgrades for the new Tiguan, including the Style Pack that adds a chrome-look protective strip for the tailgate and door sill trims in aluminium. Best to head to the VW website to configure a Tiguan if the idea of a German SUV appeals.
