For drivers who love the feel of leather the steering wheel and gear lever of the Volkswagen Tiguan offers this and more. Riding high on 17-inch alloys, with 18-inch being an option, it is propelled by a 1.4-litre Twincharger petrol engine. The Twincharger concept relies on a supercharger to increase power rapidly, while a turbocharger adds more muscle at higher revs. Available as a 2-wheel or a 4-wheel-drive, this baby is a sure bet for the Australian market and a very safe bet where passenger protection in concerned.
Electronic stability and traction control, electronic brakeforce distribution, ABS brakes with brake assist and auto-hold parking brake ably monitor the wheels, while six airbags protect up to five adult passengers from injury. Good handling through corners with minimal body roll adds to the vehicles safety features, which leaves driver and passengers to enjoy the dual-zone climate control aircon system, media device interface, Bluetooth telephone and audio streaming and auxiliary and USB audio inputs. Legroom and storage space is well provided for.
395-litres of rear cargo room expands to 1510-litres when the rear seats are folded down, while front seatbacks conveniently double as a table. With changes to the front and rear of the Volkwagen Tiguan that includes new horizontally-shaped taillights, the car gets its own uniquely distinctive appearance. Minimised noise and vibration ensures a smooth, pleasurable and sporty drive, while pricing across the range provides everyone with the opportunity to own Volkswagen’s latest offering.
