(PRESS RELEASE) WOLFSBURG, 7-NOV-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — Pre-sales for the all-new Tiguan start in Europe. The third generation of the Volkswagen SUV has been completely redesigned and improved in all areas: new hybrid drives with an all-electric range of around 100 km make this SUV more efficient than ever before. A new and consistently intuitive cockpit landscape brings even more digital services and apps on board. The latest Park Assist05 generation automates driving into and out of parking spaces. The new adaptive running gear DCC Pro05 optimises comfort and dynamics. Features like the pneumatic massage function05 for the front seats and the new IQ.LIGHT HD matrix headlights05 have been derived from the premium Touareg model. The basic version of the Tiguan with a 96 kW (130 PS) 48 V mild hybrid drive will be available at prices starting from 36,600 euros06 (in Germany).

New design. The confident design is typically Tiguan and typically Volkswagen but still completely new. A distinctive feature is the higher, more powerful-looking front end. The standard LED headlights are integrated here. In-between, a glass-covered horizontal bar with an optionally integrated LED strip replaces the traditional radiator grille. The Tiguan is optionally available with the new IQ.LIGHT HD matrix headlights05; this high-tech lighting system with 38,400 multi-pixel LEDs has been derived from the Touareg. The cleanly designed front highlights the fact that the drag coefficient has improved from 0.33 to 0.28. Athletic shoulder sections above the wheel housings dominate the silhouette. The wheels are up to 20-inch in size. A horizontal LED strip between the tail light clusters emphasises the width of the Tiguan’s new rear end.

Modern cockpit design, based on customer feedback. Volkswagen has also completely redesigned the interior of the Tiguan. With its high-quality materials and high finish standard, it breaks down conventional class boundaries. In addition, the components of the latest modular infotainment matrix (MIB4) are merged on board to create a clearly designed and closely integrated cockpit landscape that is intuitive to operate. The modules include the new Digital Cockpit (digital instruments with anti-reflective coating in tablet landscape format), a large infotainment screen with a completely new menu structure and graphics (standard display: 28.5 x 16.0 cm or 12.9 inches, optionally 33.2 x 18.5 cm or 15 inches), a new head-up display05 (information projected on the windscreen) and a new multifunction driving experience switch with an integrated OLED display. The new IDA voice assistant05 can be used to easily operate countless vehicle functions using natural language (such as navigation or air conditioning) or even ask general questions to be answered from the internet.

Efficient drive systems – eHybrid, eTSI, TSI and TDI. The all-new Tiguan will be available with eight different mild hybrid (eTSI), plug-in hybrid (eHybrid), turbocharged petrol (TSI) and turbocharged diesel (TDI) drives. Two new 48 V mild hybrid drives will be available to order straight away; the eTSI drives deliver an output of 96 kW (130 PS)01 and 110 kW (150 PS)02 and have automatic Active Cylinder Management (ACT). Both Tiguan eTSI variants combine their high efficiency with excellent moving-off performance. The new Tiguan can also be configured with a TDI engine delivering 110 kW (150 PS)03 directly from the launch. The other drive versions will be introduced in 2024. These include the newly developed plug-in hybrid drives04 for the Tiguan with an all-electric range of around 100 km. Thanks to the long electric range and a new DC quick-charging function with up to 50 kW, the eHybrid SUV becomes an electric car in everyday use. All Tiguan models are equipped with an automatic direct shift gearbox (DSG) as standard.

Seats for long journeys. The new optional ergoActive Plus seats with pneumatic four-way lumbar adjustment and a pneumatic 10-chamber pressure massage function are a perfect match for the high-quality character of this SUV. In addition, the seat heating and seat ventilation can be activated automatically – depending on the outside temperature.
