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.

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.
