Overview of the Volkswagen Tiguan
When it first came out in April 2017, the locally-assembled Tiguan was offered in two variants, the Comfortline and Highline.
In looks, the Volkswagen Tiguan has a recognizable front-end with the signature front grille that is finished in chrome. The square-shaped headlights and upper, lower LED daytime running lights further give the Tiguan its appealing front-end look, thanks to a V-shaped character line. Front foglights are positioned on the lower bumper to express a more sedan-like feature. Double five-spoke wheels complete the exterior package. From the rear, the Tiguan impresses with the new LED lights and slim proportion.
Moving to the inside, the Tiguan houses a premium cabin with soft-touch and high-grade materials. Highlights include the semi-flat bottomed steering with intuitive switches, two-ring meters, a TFT information display, a 12.3-inch touchscreen, three-zone air-conditioning and keyless entry. If that’s not enough, there are six themes for the info display tailored to the driver’s requirement.
The car’s seats are made of Vienna leather and comprise a 12-way driver electric seat. Rear passengers get foldable tables, like an MPV or airplane. Meantime, ambient lighting illuminates door linings and side steps to give that premium effect.
Lastly, a host of active and passive safety features available in the Tiguan consist of six airbags, ESC, ABS wtth Brake Assist, Multi collision brakes, Intelligent Crash Report System, Electrronic Parking brake anti-pinch windows and ISOFIX.
