Value-packed, realigned MY19 Tiguan range announced

    • Tiguan joins the Wolfsburg pack with special edition
    • Reduced range complexity with more value
    • Class-leading turbo petrol engine performance

Wednesday August 1, 2018: The MY19 Tiguan five seat range retains its two best-selling variants and gains a special edition in a revised, value-added line-up.

Tiguan buyers have overwhelmingly opted for the two most powerful petrol engine variants with all-wheel-drive, so the MY19 range will initially consist of the 132 TSI Comfortline and the 162TSI Highline. Both deploy the class-leading EA888 2.0 litre turbo petrol engine run through a 7-speed DSG transmission and 4MOTION all-wheel-drive.
When the production constraints brought about by the advent of WLTP in Europe lift, an entry level 110TSI will return to showrooms.
Volkswagen Passenger Vehicles Product Marketing Manager Jeff Shafer says that as with the MY19 Golf GTI and Golf R ranges, the Tiguan has been “realigned and enhanced”.
“The MY19 Tiguan is now an even better buy than in 2016 when the then-new SUV won a slew of car of the year awards,” Mr Shafer says.
“The 162TSI Highline already comprises some 50 per cent of Tiguan sales. Up to 90 per cent of those customers take up the optional R-Line package.
“So devising the first Wolfsburg Edition of a Volkswagen medium SUV is very much a case of listening to what our customers want.”
Based on the 16TSI Highline, the Tiguan Wolfsburg Edition includes as standard the Sound & Vision and R-Line packages, unique black exterior trim enhancements, 20″ Black Suzuka Alloys, 90% Rear Window Tint and Head Up Display. Paint choices are Oryx White Pearlescent, Deep Black Pearl Effect or Indium Grey Metallic.
