This month, Volkswagen are making their most powerful Tiguan to date available to order from UK dealerships. Additionally, the most powerful of the Tiguan’s three petrol engines is also open for order in the UK. Both new Tiguan engines are exclusively offered with the range-topping SEL or R-Line trims.
The new bi-turbo 240 PS engine is similar to that offered in the current Volkswagen Passat and Passat Alltrack. And with even more power on tap than the current Golf GTI, the new 240 PS bi-turbo diesel engine also offers a 30 PS increase over the previous most powerful Tiguan.
This powerful engine combines perfectly with Volkswagen’s 4MOTION four-wheel drive system as standard to contribute to the Tiguan’s remarkable SUV performance. The bi-turbo 240 PS engine variant is capable of reaching 142 mph, where legal, and can achieve a 0-62 mph speed in just 6.5 seconds.
Volkswagen have also used advanced active emissions control technology to ensure that, just like all other engines in the Tiguan range, the latest variants meet the most up to date EU6 emissions standard. The Tiguan SUV also features a Start/Stop system and battery regeneration – both contributing to its low CO₂ emissions.
In addition to the new 240 PS bi-turbo engine variant, Volkswagen have made the most powerful of the Tiguan’s three petrol engines open for order in the UK. This variant comprises a 2.0 TSI 180 PS which is available with a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG transmission. Just like the bi-turbo version, this option is also offered with 4MOTION four-wheel drive as standard and offers a top speed of 129 mph, 0-62 mph time of 7.7 seconds.
The addition of these two new engine options completes the Tiguan’s seven-strong range, which now spans from the 1.4 TSI 125 PS engine to the 2.0 BiTDI 240 PS model.
The Tiguan SEL 2.0 TSI 180 PS six-speed manual 4MOTION is available to order now from £30,540 RRP OTR, while the Tiguan SEL 2.0 BiTDI 240 PS seven-speed DSG 4MOTION costs from £36,450 RRP OTR.
