Volkswagen Australia has today launched the second generation of its highly popular and much- lauded Tiguan, which arrives in Australia with a full range of petrol and diesel variants in several equipment grades.

The new Tiguan sets new standards in design, driving experience, safety, comfort and functionality. Visually the Tiguan presents a completely new dynamic design character for Volkswagen SUVs. Larger proportions directly translate into a more spacious interior, paired with a significant gain in luggage space and versatility.

Tiguan offers the most comprehensive package of standard innovative safety technologies and assistance systems in the segment.

Standard highlights include
Front Assist, City Emergency Brake, Lane Assist, driver Fatigue Detection, Active Bonnet, Multi- Collision Brake, Park Assist and Rear View Camera (RVC).

The extensive new engine range consists of three TSI petrol engines: a 110kW, a 132kW and a range- topping 162kW, and two TDI diesel engines: a 110kW, and a 140kW engine; each featuring BlueMotion Technology.

These engines (with the exception of the 110kW TSI) combine with the latest generation 4MOTION all- wheel drive system with Active Control, providing the driver with a tangible means of instantly tailoring the driving characteristics of the Tiguan to the road surface and conditions.

The new Tiguan combines space and flexibility with quality finishes and the availability of premium features and technologies. Australian- delivered Tiguans also usher in a new era of technology and functionality with the Active Info Display (digital instrument display) and Area View, which ensures exceptional all- round visibility. The lower load sill and electric tailgate with Easy Open and Close functions ensure loading the boot is effortless. 3- zone climate control air conditioning system including Air Care function delivers precise multi- zone temperature control to all passengers and 8” infotainment and navigation systems combine with App- Connect for complete connectivity.

Despite moving into a larger vehicle category and offering an expansive raft of standard safety and convenience equipment, the all- new second generation Tiguan will be significantly cheaper to buy than the comparable entry level model of the first generation Tiguan, which launched in 2008*.

The all- new Tiguan range begins with the tech- laden 110TSI Trendline manual variant at $31,990; $2,000 more affordable than the comparable first generation entry model at the time of its launch.

As with other Volkswagen passenger models, the all- new Tiguan will be offered in a number of equipment grades, the entry- level Trendline, the mid- level Comfortline, and the high- spec Highline grade.

The model and grade breakdown is as follows:

Tiguan Trendline (110TSI manual and DSG) from RRP $31,990
