Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line Returns

Volkswagen is re-introducing the R-Line range to the Tiguan model.

The Tiguan is VW's fourth best selling car behing the Golf, Polo and Passat. When the R-Line model was last in production it accounted for nearly 20 percent of all sales.

 The new Tiguan R-Line is based on the SE trim level, and adds bi-xenon headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, black wheelarch extensions, body-coloured front and rear ‘R’ design bumpers and rear spoiler, aluminium front door sills with R-Line logo.  In the interior there will front sport seats with two-tone upholstery, R-Line logo on the front head restraints, leather multifunction steering wheel with aluminium inlay and R-Line logo and stainless steel pedals.

The R-Line is available with the Tiguan’s three most powerful engines.  These are the 207bhp 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine, Volkswagen’s popular 2.0-litre common rail TDI engine with either 138bhp or 168bhp. All cars will come with the 4MOTION four wheel drive system and will be fitted with a standard six-speed manual gearbox.  Carbon dioxide emissions for all models are under 200 g/km: the petrol model emits 199 g/km, while the diesels are at 150 and 158 g/km for the 138bhp and 168bhp respectively.

On the road prices start at £28,020 for the R-Line 138bhp diesel.  There is a £680 premium for the 168bhp diesel, with the petrol model costing £28,435.

The Tiguan R-Line is available to order now, with the first cars arriving in January 2013.
