Tiguan R-Line

The Tiguan continues its success story in the latest generation, which hsa been on the market since last year. This substantiated by the Tiguan being one of the three finalists in this year's "World Car of the Year" Award. The successful model has not only won over the international trade press, however but also customers. More than 300,000 Tiguan models have been prdered since they became available in 2016.


The Tiguan is one of the most important models of the Volkswagen brand and stands for a successful SUV offensive. The first generation of the Tiguan started in 2007 and quickly developed into a best seller. Today, it is produced in four countries (China, Germany, Mexico and Russia) and sold in 170 markets. After ten years, it is an integral part of the street scene with 3.5 million vehicles sold around the globe. Volkswagen builds on the successes of its predecessor with the new model and offers a Tiguan to suit every need, depending on the new country.

For example, the range has been extended with the Tiguan Allspace, the new version for Europe. Sale of this new Tiguan, longer by over 20 centimetres, starts in mid-may. The Tiguan Allspace has much more space for luggage and up to seven passengers. In addition, it offers impressive variability and an extended range of standard features compared to the previous Tiguan. China already has its local version of the Tiguan Alls[ace available; the more spacious model will be introduced into the market in America later this year.
