2010 Vw Tiguan Match launched in the U.K.

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 4, 2010

A new Match model has been added to the Tiguan range, according to the British division of Volkswagen. But so far, this name has been applied to the Polo, Golf and Touran lineup. The model, which replaces the SE trim level, costs £250 more. But then, the Tiguan Match has many more practical features over the SE.

These include Park Assist, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity, climate control, a touchscreen DAB digital radio and a leather multifunction steering wheel.

The Tiguan Match' standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a six-disc CD autochanger, heat insulating glass from the B-pillar back, six airbags, Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP) and ABS. Two petrol and two diesel engines are being offered.

The petrol engines are a 1.4-litre TSI unit, producing 150 PS and a 2.0-liter TSI engine generating 170 PS. The diesel variants are based on a 2.0-litre TDI engine with either 140 or 170 PS outputs.

The 170 PS petrol and the 140 PS diesel engines can be specified with the recently launched option of a seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox. The Tiguan Match, which is currently available, is priced from £22,110 OTR RRP for the 1.4-litre TSI BlueMotion Technology model with two-wheel drive.

PREPARE FOR THE BIG MATCH WITH VOLKSWAGEN’S LATEST TIGUAN MODEL

Volkswagen is set to launch a new model into the Tiguan range – the Match.

Although a familiar name in the Polo, Golf and Touran model ranges, it’s the first time the Match name has been applied to the Tiguan. Replacing the SE trim level, the new Match model promises to deliver greater value and equipment to the comprehensive list of comfort and convenience features already fitted to the Tiguan.

The new Tiguan Match will add Park Assist, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity, climate control, a touchscreen DAB digital radio and a leather multifunction steering wheel.

This comes in addition to the existing standard specification which includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a six-disc CD autochanger, heat insulating glass from the B-pillar back, six airbags, Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP) and ABS.

Despite these gains, the Tiguan Match commands a premium of only £250 over the existing SE model.

The Match is available with a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines. The petrol engines are a 1.4-litre TSI unit developing 150 PS and a 2.0-litre TSI engine producing 170 PS. The diesel variants are based on a 2.0-litre TDI engine with either 140 or 170 PS outputs. Both the 170 PS petrol and the 140 PS diesel engines can now be specified with the newly introduced option of a seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox.

The Tiguan Match is on sale now with a starting price of £22,110 ‘on the road’ RRP for the 1.4-litre TSI BlueMotion Technology model with two-wheel drive. The full Match model line-up is shown below.
