Volkswagen is set to launch a new model into the Volkswagen Tiguan range - the Volkswagen Tiguan Match.
Although a familiar name in the Volkswagen Polo, Golf and Touran model ranges, it's the first time the Match name has been applied to the Volkswagen Tiguan. Replacing the SE trim level, the new Match model promises to deliver greater value and equipment to the comprehensive list of comfort and convenience features already fitted to the Volkswagen Tiguan.
The new Volkswagen Tiguan Match will add Park Assist, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity, climate control, a touchscreen DAB digital radio and a leather multifunction steering wheel.
This comes in addition to the existing standard specification which includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a six-disc CD autochanger, heat insulating glass from the B-pillar back, six airbags, Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP) and ABS.
Despite these gains, the Volkswagen Tiguan Match commands a premium of only £250 over the existing SE model.
The Volkswagen Tiguan Match is available with a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines. The petrol engines are a 1.4-litre TSI unit developing 150 PS and a 2.0-litre TSI engine producing 170 PS. The diesel variants are based on a 2.0-litre TDI engine with either 140 or 170 PS outputs. Both the 170 PS petrol and the 140 PS diesel engines can now be specified with the newly introduced option of a seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox.
The Volkswagen Tiguan Match is on sale now with a starting price of £22,110 'on the road' RRP for the 1.4-litre TSI BlueMotion Technology model with two-wheel drive.The full Volkswagen Match model line-up is shown below.
