Accessorising the New Volkswagen Tiguan

The new Volkswagen Tiguan already comes with a choice of five distinct trim levels and a choice of seven engine variants. However, like for all Volkswagen cars, the Tiguan can be personalised further with a wide range of additional accessories that can be added at any time.

We take a look at some of the most notable options.

Exterior Additions

Keeping your Tiguan’s bodywork in good condition is important. Therefore, the chrome-look protective strip for the tailgate (RRP £46.00; fitted £75.00) is a smart addition which guards against the scratches commonly caused while loading the boot.

Keeping your new Tiguan clean can also be helped with front and rear mud flaps which protect the bodywork from muddy splashes (front: RRP £56.00; fitted £85.00; rear: RRP £56.00; fitted £85.00).

External Storage

The new Volkswagen Tiguan is an SUV, perfect for family road trips. For these occasions, sometimes more space is required to transport bulky items. The load bars accessory (RRP £175.00; fitted £193.00) provides the base for a range of further attachments such as Volkswagen’s bicycle holder (£85.00; fitted £103.00) and ski and snowboard holder (RRP £177.00; fitted £195.00).

An alternative bicycle carrier can be attached to the towbar (£525.00; fitted £543.00). This is the least bulky and lightest bicycle carrier around.

Another storage option is the matt black 340-litre roofbox (RRP £225.00) which has a capacity of 50 kg and can be easily fitted.

Interior Additions

The new Tiguan’s interior can also be incredibly personalised. As the Tiguan is likely to be a vehicle that many buyers will use for family transportation, additional protection is available to maintain the condition of the interior. Rubber floor mats for example are beneficial in all weather conditions as they’re tailored, easy-to-clean and durable. (RRP £40.00).

Alternatively, a choice of basic or luxury tailored carpet mats (RRP £55.00 and £85.00) can also provide much needed protection for the car’s flooring.

Boot Accessories

SUVs are incredibly practical vehicles and serve many purposes. Therefore, investing in Volkswagen’s flexible boot liner (RRP £40.00) could be a wise move. Similarly, the accessory luggage net further prevents items from moving around (RRP £55.00).

Additionally, keeping pets safely contained in the boot is made simple, thanks to the upper partition grille accessory, which provides a sturdy metal barrier preventing pets from entering the passenger compartment (RRP £152.00; fitted £210.00).

Accessories for Children

The new Tiguan is already an incredibly family friendly SUV but Volkswagen has also designed an optional child seat that fits perfectly within the Tiguan. Like all Volkswagen passenger cars, the Tiguan is equipped with Isofix mounting points on the two outer rear seats and so the G1 Isofix DUO Plus seat is easy to fit (RRP £370.00).

Extra Security

The Volkswagen Tiguan excels in security and is fitted with an anti-theft alarm system and engine immobiliser as standard.

However, for those who want ultimate security, they may want to opt for the CobraTrak Plus vehicle tracking system. It is the only tracking company approved by Volkswagen and the system comes with a one-year subscription and fitting included (RRP £536.00).

Accessory Packs

Some buyers may wish to buy multiple accessories that serve one particular purpose or lifestyle. That’s why Volkswagen have tried to categorise and group popular accessories together into great value packs. Examples of these include the Business, Style, Protection, Pet and Transport Accessory packs – all of which range from £99 - £295 RRP (non-fitted).
