Volkswagen has just added the new Tiguan Offroad to its range of successful compact SUVs. When it comes to the Tiguan Offroad, the name and visual lines say it all.
The characteristically designed front not only looks stylish and robust, but also stands out with a larger ramp angle and integrated engine skid plate. In addition, the 4Motion four-wheel drive with 4Motion Active Control fitted as standard ensures good traction at all times. The Tiguan Offroad is available to order now.
The Offroad has been optimised for use on off the beaten track. In addition to the characteristic off-road look, the newly-designed front bumper with its silver applications also boasts a ramp angle of 24 degrees. The larger ramp angle is just as important for moderate all-terrain use as the skid plate for the mechanical units.
The technical features of the Tiguan are also perfect for trips into the great outdoors: it comes with 4Motion four-wheel drive with 4Motion Active Control and driving mode selection as standard, and the system is operated via a multifunction switch in the centre console. The driver can use this switch to activate “Onroad”, “Offroad” and “Snow” driving modes. Depending on the driving mode selected, all drive and assistance systems are adapted to suit the respective terrain and the drive situation, ensuring optimum traction.
Besides the characteristic bumper, the visual lines also impress with door trim components with an off-road look, a bumper middle section in matt Reflex Silver with blackened chrome trim strips, and the black roof rails and black exterior mirror covers. The model also features a distinctive Offroad sign on the B-pillar.
The package also includes the comfort seats in the front with a centre storage compartment in “Austin” fabric, a black headliner, the Active Lighting System, Dynamic Light Assist and the dynamic cornering light. The Offroad variant comes with black 18-inch Sebring alloy wheels as standard. Customers can also choose between the optional 19-inch “Auckland” and “Victoria Falls” wheels and the 20-inch “Kapstadt” wheel.
Also standard are the multifunction steering wheel and the gear knob in leather, aluminium decorative inserts, pedals and foot rest in brushed stainless steel, and rugged rubber floor mats.
Customers can also choose from a wide range of optional extras such as the “Active Info Display” digital instrument cluster, “Discover Pro” navigation system, “Trailer Assist” trailer manoeuvring system, and DCC adaptive chassis control.
The Tiguan Offroad range starts at the powerful 110 kW/150 PS diesel, equipped with 7-gear DSG and 4Motion four-wheel drive, priced at €40,925 ($47,060). The range will include various other diesel and petrol engines. All variants available in Germany are equipped with four-wheel drive and DSG transmission as standard.
