More practical as well as efficient Tiguan will go on sale inside the UK next spring, which has a plug-in hybrid type on the way
The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan made its debut at the Frankfurt motor show in September, as well as will go on sale inside the UK next spring. the idea’s shown here in R-Line form in our exclusive studio pictures.
Volkswagen is actually claiming the brand new Tiguan comes with much-improved upon Internal space as well as fuel efficiency gains of up to 25%. The brand new type is actually 60mm longer, 30mm wider as well as 33mm lower than its predecessor – as well as its wheelbase is actually up by 77mm, to 2681mm.
VW claims rear-seat kneeroom is actually up by 29mm, thanks to a redesigned split-fold rear seat that will offers up 180mm of longitudinal adjustment. The boot capacity is actually up, too – by 145 litres to 615 litres with the rear seats in place or 1655 litres with them folded down.
The core of the Tiguan’s engine line-up will be EU6-compliant diesel engines. There’s a 114bhp 1.6 as well as a trio of 2.0-litre units offering 148bhp, 178bhp as well as 217bhp. Certain markets will get a variety of 1.4-litre as well as 2.0-litre turbocharged petrols too, although the UK is actually unlikely to see more than a couple of these at most.
The lower-powered engines get front-wheel drive, while the more potent units have a four-wheel-drive system offering four driving modes. Gearbox choices include a standard six-speed manual as well as an optional six- or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
All four-wheel drive variants right now have 200mm of ground clearance – an extra 11mm over the front-drive versions. There’s also an optional Off-Road package that will brings a reworked front bumper to boost the approach angle coming from 18.3 degrees to 25.6 degrees. Depending on the engine, the towing capacity extends to 2500kg.
VW also previewed a Tiguan GTE plug-in petrol-electric hybrid at the Frankfurt show. the idea uses the same basic powertrain as the recently introduced Passat GTE, mixing a 154bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine with an electric motor for a combined output of 215bhp. the idea includes a range of 575 miles.
Together, they provide the most economical of the brand new Tiguan versions with combined consumption of 149mpg as well as CO2 emissions of 42g/km – as well as the idea can also travel for more than 30 miles in pure electric mode.
More details on the Tiguan’s pricing as well as specification inside the UK will be released closer to its market launch inside the spring. Close rivals include the Land Rover Discovery Sport, Audi Q5, BMW X3 as well as Mercedes-Benz GLC. The current Tiguan is actually priced coming from £22,975 inside the UK.
