Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line now better value

The Tiguan R-Line is now £750 cheaper and comes with standard sat nav

The top-of-the-range Volkswagen Tiguan SUV has been made even more appealing thanks to the addition of sat nav, along with a £750 price reduction. The changes amount to a £1,500 real-world saving and the car now costs £28,490 in total.

The Tiguan off-roader is Volkswagen's fifth-best-selling model and the changes aim to keep it that way. The R-Line model comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, sports suspension, bi-xenon headlights and an R-Line bodykit. The latter includes unique bumpers, side skirts and badging. There are also new interior features such as sport seats with R-Line logos, black roof lining and upgraded upholstery.

Inside, there’s a touchscreen sat nav system, a Bluetooth phone connection, a DAB digital radio and parking assistance. You also get a multifunction leather-trimmed steering wheel, two-zone climate control and folding picnic tables on the back of the front seats.

All Tiguans have rear seats that split 60:40 and can be moved lengthways to offer increased luggage space or improved rear legroom. The rear seats can also be folded to increase luggage capacity from 470 litres to 1,510 litres.

Buyers can choose from three engines – two 2.0-litre diesels with 138bhp and 177bhp, plus a 2.0-litre petrol with 207bhp. The lower-powered diesel can return fuel economy of 47.1mpg and costs £145 a year in road tax. The more powerful diesel gets the same fuel economy, but costs £180 to tax every year, while the petrol is the most expensive model to run, with fuel economy of 32.8mpg and high CO2 emissions for £265-a-year road. All R-Line models have four-wheel drive fitted as standard.
