VW Tiguan

Tiguan to take on Honda's CR-V

Volkswagen (VW) has released a faster and more powerful version of its compact 4x4, the Tiguan.

VW says that while the new diesel Tiguan has greater torque (pulling power) than a Golf GTI, and that it has the efficiency, lower emissions and refinement you'd expect from a modern diesel.

As with the rest of the Tiguan range, the new 2.0-litre engine uses the advanced '4Motion’ system.

Lower emissions

This allows it to divert up to 100% of drive to any wheel depending on the traction available.

The new Tiguan can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in 8.9 seconds, has a top speed of 125mph and standard equipment includes six airbags and a touch-screen entertainment system with a six-disc CD auto-changer.

Prices start at £22,670 - rising to £23,370 for the Sport model – and for an an extra £450 you will get an auto-parking option.

‘Park Assist’ is more than a reversing sensor; it turns the steering wheel while you're parallel parking, so you just control the throttle and brake.

Which? put the Tiguan through its paces earlier this year.
