Volkswagen Tiguan SUV gets new trim levels for 2019

Volkswagen introduces new engine and trim levels for Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace SUVs

Volkswagen has rearranged its Tiguan SUV range, adding more equipment and a new engine into the mix. Match and R-Line Tech trim levels have been introduced, each replacing existing trim levels in the range.

Match trim takes the place of SE and SE Nav trims, bringing improved levels of standard equipment, including a rear view camera, parking assist, keyless entry and 19-inch alloy wheels. Prices for the Tiguan Match start at £26,750 in two-wheel drive, 128bhp 1.5-litre petrol guise with a manual gearbox; the most expensive Match model costs £34,770 and brings four-wheel drive and a 187bhp 2.0-litre diesel with a seven-speed DSG automatic.

R-Line Tech has replaced R-Line trim in the range, adding an ‘area view’ camera system, park assist, keyless entry and a powered tailgate on top of existing equipment highlights like adaptive cruise control, a panoramic sunroof, 20-inch alloys and Volkswagen’s Active Info Display digital dials. Prices start at £33,150 for the 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol model with two-wheel drive and a manual gearbox; R-Line Tech models top out at £38,335 for the new 227bhp 2.0-litre petrol model.

The Volkswagen Tiguan S remains the entry-level option; prices start at £23,990 for the 128bhp 1.5-litre petrol with two-wheel drive and a six-speed manual. Standard equipment includes an eight-inch infotainment screen with DAB radio, 17-inch alloy wheels, a leather steering wheel, front centre armrest, a cooled glovebox, heated electric door mirrors and manual air conditioning.
