Fresh from its global launch in 2021, Volkswagen has released a special edition of its updated Tiguan SUV known as the Urban Sport. The Tiguan first debuted locally in 2008, selling over 41 000 units in South Africa, with the current model selling with a starting price of R521 700.
The Urban Sport package is largely cosmetic with a colour-coded rear bumper, a black rear spoiler, a front bumper with high-gloss black accents, black wing mirror casings and an 'Urban Sport' lettering and light projection. The fitment of black, 18-inch Sebring alloy wheels come as standard.
Tiguan with a twist
The Urban Sport's interior remains relatively standard bar the pedals and footrest in brushed stainless steel, seating with integrated lumbar support in the rear, newly-designed seat covers in black and anthracite with red stitching.
A Digital DAB+ radio, Air Care Climatronic air conditioning with active combination filter, controls in the rear, 3-zone temperature control, and Lane Assist round off the convenience features.
Also offered in the model is a head-up display, Harman Kardon sound system with 8+1 speakers and a digital 16-channel amplifier and subwoofer, LED matrix headlights with LED daytime running and cornering lights, headlight range adjustment and adverse weather light.
