We knew that the new Tiguan would be a game changer, but to be crowned 2016 CarsGuide Car of the Year, Drive Car of the Year and Drive Best SUV of its size was a pleasant surprise. But then again, with a 5-star ANCAP safety rating, a stylish new design, spacious interior and advanced technology, it’s easy to see why the Tiguan was named the best of the best for 2016.
The stylish new Tiguan comes in six different options. Choose between petrol or diesel, as well as the level of safety and infotainment that’s right for you.
The new Tiguan backs up its swagger with considerable smarts thanks to the inclusion of all the latest Volkswagen intelligent technology.
Your mind will be set at ease in the impressive new Tiguan with all the superior safety features as standard. Plus, class-leading driver aids put cutting-edge technology at your fingertips. The new Tiguan is proof that safety and style go hand in hand.
Using a radar sensor, Front Assist detects when the vehicle in front is too close. It will warn you and prepare the car for braking. If nothing changes, it partially applies the brakes giving you a better chance of avoiding or minimising a collision. When you’re travelling below 30km/h, City Emergency Brake will prepare the brakes if a collision is likely. If the driver doesn’t brake, the system will do it automatically.
Helps you stay in control of your vehicle by preventing understeer or oversteer. If your vehicle starts to skid, the Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP) will apply the brakes to individual wheels and adjust the engine's power output to correct the problem.
An extension of the Electronic Differential Lock function, this clever addition applies pressure to the wheel on the inside of the corner in order to help prevent wheel spin. As a result of this precise braking pressure, cornering is sportier and more accurate.
The cruise control system with Automatic Cruise Control (ACC) lets you set the speed you want to travel and the gap you want to allow between you and the car in front. Using a radar sensor, the car then maintains your speed and your distance. In doing so it makes life easier for the driver, particularly on long journeys, and reduces the risk of exceeding the speed limit.
Our turbocharged diesel TDI engines feature the latest in common rail injection technology, making them responsive and fun to drive, as well as being incredibly efficient. How they work is through injecting precise amounts of fuel at extremely high pressure, resulting in impressive torque and performance.
