New Volkswagen Tiguan 118TSI

Volkswagen Tiguan has sporty SUV and is offered in two or four-wheel drive.

Kennedy road tests and the VW Tiguan, with specs, economy and verdict.

For the 2012 season the Volkswagen Tiguan a new frontal appearance to bring it line with the latest horizontal theme. A theme now used on VWs from the Polo to the Amarok utility. Interestingly, the new VW up! hasn’t received this style as Volkswagen is keen for its new car to establish its own individual identity.

The standard Volkswagen Tiguan starts at $28,490 and provides a of standard equipment such as control, roof rails, fog lamps, alloy wheels on the 155TSI, 16-inch on the other with optional 18-inch), and USB audio inputs, Bluetooth and audio streaming, media interface (MDI) and leather steering wheel and gear

The flagship 155TSI will set you $42,990 and adds chrome mouldings, window trim and rails, front fog lamps, front seats with drawers, rain-sensing windscreen dual-zone climate control air low tyre pressure indicator and fatigue detection system.

For those are looking to take VW Tiguan off-road the AWD models with a useful approach of 28 degrees.

In line with its suburban role the front-wheel 118TSI is limited to just 18

In 2011, the Tiguan range its appeal by adding a two-wheel (2WD) alternative to the all-wheel (4WD) models. The entry Tiguan 118TSI we reviewed a 1.4-litre Twincharger petrol with Volkswagen’s BlueMotion to combine performance and fuel

The Twincharger is a clever combination of and turbocharging. The supercharger provides a increase in power when you on the accelerator. The turbocharger then extra grunt as it comes play at higher revs, the two work in combination as the engine calculate the driver’s needs moment to moment.

We were able to drive the Tiguan 118TSI and the 155TSI as of our routine road test The 118TSI with a six-speed gearbox, the 155TSI with self-shifting-manual DSG transmission. While enthusiasts will clearly the semi sporty performance the 155TSI we feel that buyers will be more satisfied with the economy

As well as changes to the frontal the latest Tiguan has revised these also have a look and tie in neatly with the front end. Interiors new seat trim and a redesigned wheel. There’s plenty of leg and in both front and rear with space in the back for adults without too much of a

Rear storage space is a 395 litres, expanding to 1510 with the rear seatbacks Both the rear and front seats in the 155TSI fold and we were able to transport a of 2.4-metre posts without any The front seatback can act as a table folded.

Standard crash avoidance in all Tiguan models include ABS with brake assist and brakeforce distribution, auto-hold brake, electronic stability and control. Six airbags will minimise injuries should still go wrong.

Handling is good for a tallish vehicle good ground clearance and the can be pushed through corners at speeds without too much roll. Having said it’s no sportscar so shouldn#39;t be too hard at bends. Noise and reduction is very good on to moderate roads, although not so on the typical Australian coarse-chip where there can be quite a at times.

Try for yourself if trips to the country are in sights.

Our tests of models at end of the Volkswagen Tiguan range the German maker has a range will appeal to a variety of and buyers.
