2012 VW Tiguan UK Price

Volkswagen also revealed official pricing of the latest iteration of the Tiguan crossover.

Volkswagen’s revised Tiguan compact SUV goes on sale on 1 July, with prices starting from £21,085 and rising to £28,020 (RRP OTR).  Customers will be able to order a new Tiguan, with the first customer deliveries arriving in the UK in September, just like the Golf Cabrio. Come to think of it, it’s riced relatively similar to the Golf, so yo have to decide whether you want a drop-top sportscar, or a capable crossover vehicle.

The thing about the new Tiguan is, the car is fantastically well-equipped with items like Fatigue Detection, Lane Assist and XDS for the first time. It offers a whole a new experience in this segment.

More details about the 2012 VW Tiguan in the press release below:

Like the previous model, the latest Tiguan is unique in being available not only with a choice of two- or four-wheel drive, but also with the option of two front ends.  One has a front end biased towards on-road driving with an 18 degree angle of approach while an ‘Escape’ model has a 28 degree angle of approach and additional technologies for off-road driving.

Whichever version is chosen, all new Tiguans feature a new look dominated by horizontal lines on the front grille, bringing the model into line with other new Volkswagen models.  The Tiguan now also once again bears a strong resemblance to its ‘big brother’ the Touareg.  At the rear, new two-part light clusters give the Tiguan a distinctive appearance.  Again, similar to those of the Touareg, they form an ‘L’ shape, while the lower border of the lights also follows a horizontal geometry.

Four trim levels available: S, SE, Sport and Escape.  All models will be well equipped, with 16-inch alloy wheels, Climatic air conditioning, DAB radio and alarm standard on even the entry-level S.  SE adds 17-inch alloys, 2Zone electronic air conditioning, Park Assist, iPod and Bluetooth preparation plus Fatigue Detection system (as fitted to the new Passat) as standard.  Sport versions gain multi-function steering wheel and Bluetooth connectivity, plus chrome plated roof rails, heat insulated and tinted glass from the B-pillar back, sport seats, front fog lights and sports suspension among other items.  The new Escape model features comfort and convenience features (including Bluetooth and multi-function steering wheel) which were not previously available, reflecting a change in customer demands for off-road capability and a high level of equipment.

Six engines are available, three petrol and three diesel, four of which are new to the Tiguan.  New engines include a twin-charged 1.4-litre TSI with 160 PS (up from 150 in previous generation), a 2.0-litre TSI with 180 PS and a 2.0-litre TSI with 210 PS (previously 200 PS).  Despite the increase in power CO2 emissions have remained as before or improved.

A 2.0-litre TDI 110 PS engine is offered in two-wheel drive and with a CO2 output of 139 g/km.  A further two diesel power units are carried over from the previous generation (the 2.0-litre common rail TDI with 140 and 170 PS).  All have improved carbon dioxide emissions values: the 170 PS engine now emits 158 rather than 165 g/km; while the 140 PS unit has been improved substantially meaning it is now in a lower VED band (reduction from 164 to 150 g/km manual and 169 to 158 g/km for seven-speed DSG).  Diesel engines will account for around 90 per cent of Tiguan sales; the best-selling derivative is expected to be the 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS.

Both the 2.0-litre TDI 110 and 140 PS models, as well as the 1.4-litre TSI 160 PS with two-wheel drive are designated BlueMotion Technology models.  As such they feature Stop/Start and battery regeneration systems to enhance fuel economy and reduce emissions.

A number of options are available for the first time on the latest Tiguan, including Kessy (Keyless Entry and Start System), the RNS 315 satellite navigation system, Lane Assist (which helps prevent accidents caused by the driver drifting out of the lane) and Light Assist which switches between dipped and main beam depending on oncoming traffic.

Also available as an option is XDS electronic differential lock – as fitted to the Golf GTI.
A functional extension of the electronic locks already integrated via ESP, XDS improves handling when driving quickly through bends.

Naturally the latest Tiguan retains all the versatility and practicality for which the previous model was renowned, being a four-door, five-seater.  The rear seat (from SE upwards) is a 60:40 split bench that can be adjusted forwards and backwards by up to 16 cm and also reclined, while cargo capacity ranges from 470 to 1,510 litres.

The first images of the new Tiguan were revealed in February, ahead of the car making its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.  The Tiguan is Volkswagen’s fourth best-selling model (after Golf, Polo and Passat), and in the four years since launch nearly 600,000 have been sold worldwide.  For more information, go to www.volkswagen.co.uk.
