Volkswagen Tiguan

Best of the best.

We knew that the new Tiguan would be a game changer, but to be crowned 2016 CarsGuide Car of the Year, Drive Car of the Year and Drive Best SUV of its size was a pleasant surprise. But then again, with a 5-star ANCAP safety rating, a stylish new design, spacious interior and advanced technology, it’s easy to see why the Tiguan was named the best of the best for 2016.

Spoilt for choice.

The stylish new Tiguan comes in six different options. Choose between petrol or diesel, as well as the level of safety and infotainment that’s right for you.

The family SUV that doesn’t look like one.

Exterior
Fine form

With its striking proportions, the new Tiguan exudes a powerful presence, wherever it appears. The upright front end, prominent wheel arches and distinctive sill elements underline the masculine SUV styling. Attractive design details complete the stylish look – and make an impression time after time.

Interior
Swagger comes standard

The Tiguan wouldn’t be a Volkswagen if it didn’t convey a sense of refined comfort with every touch. The dashboard itself is the epitome of clean and functional design, with everything the driver needs readily at hand.

The Tiguan Highline flashes a confident face to oncoming traffic, with slimline headlights, LED daytime driving lights and integrated chrome strips. They sit below a high bonnet complete with V-shaped character lines. Full LED headlights with Dynamic Cornering lights offer exceptional illumination of the road ahead and when turning.

Driver cabin
A tailored fit

The front cabin has been designed to make the driver feel in charge and completely at one with the vehicle. A high-positioned gearshift and leather multi-function steering wheel with gearshift paddles in the Highline, are just two examples of Volkswagen’s focus on driver enjoyment.

Next level infotainment.

The new Tiguan backs up its swagger with considerable smarts thanks to the inclusion of all the latest Volkswagen intelligent technology.

Active Info Display
Something to look forward to

The eye-catching Active Info Display, part of the optional Driver Assistance package, takes the place of the traditional instruments that sit behind the steering wheel. This 12.3” high-definition digital screen, with configurable views for navigation, infotainment, driver assistance, off-road and vehicle performance functions, puts everything you need right in front of your eyes.

Active Info Display
App-Connect
The apps from your phone in your car

Access your smartphone’s screen, selected apps, maps, and music through App-Connect on your car’s touchscreen and Voice Control. You can do this thanks to three innovative technologies: Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® interfaces.

Discover Media navigation system
Always head in the right direction

With two SD card slots for navigation and media, 2D and 3D (bird's eye) map views, CD player with auxiliary input and an 8" colour display with touchscreen, getting where you want to go has never been easier.

Rear View Camera
Eyes in the back of your head

Whether reversing out of a busy parking lot or trying to squeeze into a tricky spot, an extra set of eyes is always handy. The Rear View Camera displays a live picture on your screen that not only shows what's behind you, but also multi-angle views and dynamic guidance lines, which all come together to make reversing safer and easier.

Driving Profile Selection
You’re in the driver’s seat, literally

How you drive is up to you with a choice of selectable driving profiles: Normal, Sport, Eco, Comfort and Individual. While the Tiguan 4MOTION all-wheel drive offers improved fuel efficiency as well as the stability and safety you would expect.

You may forget it’s a family car, but we haven’t.

Your mind will be set at ease in the impressive new Tiguan with all the superior safety features as standard. Plus, class-leading driver aids put cutting-edge technology at your fingertips. The new Tiguan is proof that safety and style go hand in hand.

Driver Fatigue detection2
Driver Fatigue detection
A welcome wake-up call

This potentially life-saving system continually evaluates steering movements and other independent signals, and if fatigue is detected, warns the driver with an alarm, and on the Multi-Function Display recommends the driver takes a break.

Airbags
Protect your precious cargo

The safe new Tiguan comes with seven airbags, strategically positioned throughout the vehicle. So if something does go wrong, you’ll be pleased you’re in a Tiguan.

Airbags
Multi-collision brake
Multi-collision brake
Prevent follow-on collisions

When the airbag sensors detect a collision, this state-of-the-art system applies the brakes to slow down the vehicle so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are turned on and stay on. The driver can take over at any time.

Park Assist
Parking's a piece of cake

Using sensors on either side of the front and rear bumpers, together with parking distance sensors front and rear, Park Assist actively helps you 90 degree park, back into a park and get in and out of a parallel park.

Park Assist2
Lane Assist2
Lane Assist
Stay right where you are

Using a camera to monitor the markings on the road ahead, Lane Assist helps keep you safe by working to prevent you leaving your lane unintentionally. If you start to leave your lane without indicating the system takes corrective steering action. If you still don’t respond a message will appear in the Multi-Function Display in conjunction with a warning tone.

Side Assist
Embrace the change

The Side Assist function can help make changing lanes even safer. You still need to use your rear vision mirror and glance over your shoulder but the system’s sensors will alert you to presence of a vehicle you may have missed that could be a risk if you change lanes.

Front Assist with City Emergency Brake

Stay on the front foot around other drivers

Using a radar sensor, Front Assist detects when the vehicle in front is too close. It will warn you and prepare the car for braking. If nothing changes, it partially applies the brakes giving you a better chance of avoiding or minimising a collision. When you’re travelling below 30km/h, City Emergency Brake will prepare the brakes if a collision is likely. If the driver doesn’t brake, the system will do it automatically.

Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP)

Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP)
A good steer on safety

Helps you stay in control of your vehicle by preventing understeer or oversteer. If your vehicle starts to skid, the Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP) will apply the brakes to individual wheels and adjust the engine's power output to correct the problem.

Turn a corner on traction

An extension of the Electronic Differential Lock function, this clever addition applies pressure to the wheel on the inside of the corner in order to help prevent wheel spin. As a result of this precise braking pressure, cornering is sportier and more accurate.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
Smart cruising

The cruise control system with Automatic Cruise Control (ACC) lets you set the speed you want to travel and the gap you want to allow between you and the car in front. Using a radar sensor, the car then maintains your speed and your distance. In doing so it makes life easier for the driver, particularly on long journeys, and reduces the risk of exceeding the speed limit.

You'll always want to take the scenic route.

Seat flexibility

Cabin space to share

At 615 litres* with the seats up, which expands to a cavernous 1655 litres with the seats folded, there’s no need to worry about that extra suitcase or bags of groceries. Apart from the driver’s seat, all seats can be folded down and the divided rear bench seat can be moved lengthways. A low loading sill makes for easy use of the boot space, as does a luggage compartment floor that can be adjusted to two different heights.

*With rear seat in the forward position.

Three-zone climate control
Now your family can agree to disagree

We’ve all had arguments over the temperature in the car before, but in the Tiguan, driver, front passenger and back seat passengers can choose the temperature that suits them. Plus, with the added benefit of an air-quality sensor and allergen filter to maintain optimum air quality.

*3 zone for Comfortline and Highline; all models have rear air vents.

Great care has been taken to improve driver and passenger comfort, which is why the Tiguan now features a new generation of seat with updated foam contours. Choose the Highline variant and feel the difference offered by Vienna leather appointed upholstery.

Easy Open and Easy Close tailgate
For when you’ve got your hands full

With the Easy Open function, the tailgate can be opened simply by waving a foot in front of a sensor, making it enormously convenient when carrying a load of shopping. Closing the tailgate is as easy as pressing a button or allowing the Easy Close function to shut the tailgate automatically when the user moves away from the vehicle.

Powerful enough to handle almost anything.

Our turbocharged diesel TDI engines feature the latest in common rail injection technology, making them responsive and fun to drive, as well as being incredibly efficient. How they work is through injecting precise amounts of fuel at extremely high pressure, resulting in impressive torque and performance.

Petrol engine
TSI technology

TSI is Volkswagen’s award-winning technology for petrol engines. It results in excellent drivability and instant acceleration in every gear. Plus, overtaking is safer and you can power up hills effortlessly.

Diesel engine
TDI technology

Volkswagen’s cutting-edge TDI engine with diesel particulate filter features common rail technology that injects precise amounts of fuel at extremely high pressure. This results in impressive torque and performance.

BlueMotion Technology
Better for your engine and your wallet

BlueMotion Technology, including the Start/Stop system, brake energy recuperation and gear shift recommendation, lowers fuel consumption. It comes from our ‘Think Blue.’ concept: to develop fuel-efficient vehicles that place less burden on the environment over their entire lifetime.

Stop/Start system
Pulls out all the stops on economy

Part of BlueMotion Technology, this money-saving feature automatically stops the engine when you come to a standstill; and starts again on take-off, helping you cut back on fuel consumption.

Brake energy recuperation
Recycles breaking energy

Brake energy recuperation recharges your car battery using the energy created from braking or when coasting. Because the battery is charged, the voltage in the alternator can be reduced which means lower fuel consumption.

4MOTION all-wheel drive
Gain some traction

The 4MOTION all-wheel drive coupling ensures excellent traction, optimal handling and steering response and dynamics.

4MOTION Active Control
You're spoilt for choice

Active Control allows the driver to tailor his or her driving experience by choosing one of four special all-wheel drive modes (snow, on-road, and two off-road settings: one automatic and one variable) via a rotary switch. A central mode button activates the Driving Profile Selection, which offers further personalisation of the on-road mode with Normal, Sport and Eco profiles available to the driver.
