Sat Nav Boost Helps Volkswagen Tiguan Find its Way to More Buyers in UK

Volkswagen is boosting the specification of the range-topping Tiguan R-Line model, adding satellite navigation as standard – and giving it an ‘on the road’ price reduction of £750. This means a value enhancement of nearly £1,500, with prices for the R-Line range now starting at £28,490 (RRP OTR).

The Tiguan compact off-roader is Volkswagen’s fifth best-selling model, and offers excellent value for money. This change to the R-Line ensures it will continue to appeal to buyers looking for a genuine 4×4 with a raft of comfort, convenience and safety features.

The R-Line sits above the Match trim, and adds 18-inch wheels, sports suspension,
bi-xenon headlights, an R-Line styling pack with unique bumpers, side skirts and badging, plus bespoke interior features including sport seats with R-Line logo, black roof lining and upholstery upgrade.

These features come on top of the Match specification which includes the RNS 315 colour touchscreen satellite navigation system and as well as Bluetooth, MDI media interface with leads for iPhone and USB, CD/DVD player, SD card provision, DAB digital radio and Park Assist. A multifunction steering wheel, trimmed in leather, just like the gear lever, is also standard, along with standard 2Zone climate control and folding picnic tables on the back of the front seats.

For added convenience, on all Tiguans the rear seats split 60:40 and can be moved lengthways, to increase luggage space or legroom as required by up to 16 cm, while the backrest angle can be adjusted by 23 degrees. The rear seats can also be folded to increase luggage capacity from 470 to 1,510 litres. The front passenger seat backrest can also be folded forwards, to create a load space that is up to 2.5 metres long. There’s plenty of room for smaller items both in the under-seat drawers and also under the boot floor, alongside the space-saver spare wheel.

The Tiguan R-Line is available with a choice of powerful diesel and petrol engines and gearboxes. For more details, visit your nearest Volkswagen Retailers or go to
