THE new Volkswagen Tiguan is a great all-rounder with distinctive styling which redefines its class and confidently points the way to the future.

The new Tiguan, which will be launched in South Africa towards the end of 2016, kicks off the comprehensive SUV offensive by Volkswagen. It is the first Volkswagen Sport Utility Vehicle to be based on the modular transverse matrix (MQB), and it sets new standards in design, comfort and functionality. This however does not compromise its off-road capabilities which have been enhanced with a rugged all-wheel drive system that includes premium class technology for use on and off the highway.

The new Tiguan has been receiving positive reviews from the international media.

In the latest comparative test conducted by the largest motoring magazine in Germany, Auto Motor und Sport, the new Tiguan was chosen as the best SUV in its segment against its direct competitors. Recently, Auto Bild Allrad, Europe’s largest magazine for off-road vehicles, announced the new Tiguan as the 2016 “All-wheel Car of the Year”.

The new Tiguan also won the “2016 Design Trophy” in the SUV category from Auto Zeitung, German’s special interest magazine.

The new Tiguan engine line-up and retail prices for the South African market will be announced closer to the launch date.
