Volkswagen now offering Tiguan R-Line with £28,435 starting price

Article by Anita Panait, on October 4, 2012

German carmaker Volkswagen is now offering a new trim level to its Tiguan compact sports utility vehicle line-up, the R-Line. This trim level was one of the most popular models among the first generations of the Tiguan compact SUV, as the R-Line accounted for almost 20 percent of the total sales. With the return of the Tiguan R-Line, VW expects the vehicle to account for around a quarter of the total sales of the Tiguan.

The new Tiguan R-Line is based on the SE trim level, with the addition of bi-xenon headlights, 18-inch ‘Mallory’ alloy wheels painted in Sterling Silver with black wheelarch extensions and body-colored unique front and rear ‘R’ design bumpers and rear spoiler. The latest Tiguan model also bears an R-Line logo on the front grille and aluminium front door sills.

This theme is carried over into the interior of the Tiguan R-Line, accentuated with front sport seats, two-tone upholstery and an R-Line logo on the front head restraints. The vehicle also sports stainless steel pedals and a leather multifunction steering wheel with aluminium inlay and R-Line logo. The Tiguan R-Line is available in three powerful engine choices: a 2.0-litre TSI with 210 PS and 4MOTION four-wheel drive, and the 2.0-litre common rail TDI engine with either 140 or 170 PS and 4MOTION.

The engines are paired with a standard six-speed manual transmission. All models boast of carbon dioxide under 200 g/km. The Tiguan R-Line powered by the petrol engine emits 199 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer.

The Tiguan R-Lines powered by the 140-PS and 170-PS diesel engine emit 150 grams and 158 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer respectively. The petrol model has a starting price of £28,435, while a buyer needs to add just £680 premium to acquire the 170 PS diesel model. Interested buyers could now order the Tiguan R-Line through Volkswagen Retailers. Deliveries start in January 2013.
