The Volkswagen Tiguan first rolled off the production line in 2007, signifying the German marque’s entry into the flourishing 4x4 market. Using the Golf Mark V platform as the basis for the vehicle, Volkswagen created this upmarket and solidly built mini-SUV.
The first-generation Tiguan – which was manufactured until 2016 – is an impressive-looking vehicle, not least because of its expansive bumpers and wheel arches and raised ride height. The car’s modular sub frame is made with a blend of aluminium and steel, providing the vehicle with its lightweight yet seriously robust construction.
The off-road-capable Tiguan is an accomplished urban cruiser, one that delivers a refined and comfortable ride for four full-size adult travellers (or three younger passengers in the rear compartment. Among the Tiguan’s standard features are air-conditioning and
DAB radio, ensuring that everyone on board feels suitably refreshed, as well as entertained. A class-competitive 615-litre boot space can be expanded further when the vehicle’s 60/40 split-folding rear seats are flipped, revealing a 1,655-litre load capacity.
The Tiguan comes with a 1.4-litre petrol or 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine, with power outputs ranging between 108bhp and 181bhp. Fuel-economy figures vary from 50mpg to 60mpg, while CO2 emissions start as low as 123g/km. The vehicle offers considerable pulling power – between 1,800kg and 2,200kg – ensuring that it can easily transport a boat, horsebox or caravan.
Rated five stars by Euro NCAP, the Tiguan is specified with a wide range of safety equipment, such as six airbags, ISOFIX child-seat anchor points and Electronic Stability Control.
