Volkswagen’s first compact SUV, the Tiguan, is available to drive away from Volkswagen Retailers across the UK today, along with a number of attractive offers from Volkswagen Finance.
Giving buyers high levels of interior space, comfort and specification, as well as value for money, the Tiguan is set to become a popular compact 4x4 choice, with expected sales of around 10,500 units this year in the UK.
From launch, two engines are available – a 1.4-litre TSI 150 PS petrol and a 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS diesel – plus four trim levels, S, SE, Sport and Escape, and all have standard 4MOTION four-wheel drive. Escape models differentiate themselves from the rest of the range thanks to a front end treatment which is biased towards off-road applications, as well as a number of other features suited to venturing off the beaten track. Prices for the Tiguan start at £19,370 for the S 1.4-litre TSI manual.
Standard equipment levels are high across the range, with all models featuring alloy wheels, air conditioning, MP3 compatible stereo and CD player, ABS and ESP, plus twin front and side airbags and a curtain airbag system.
A number of innovative options are also offered on the Tiguan, including Volkswagen’s new RNS 510 touchscreen satellite navigation and audio system which incorporates a hard drive to record not only the owner’s favourite tracks and navigation mapping, but also waypoints and routes off-road where digital mapping does not exist.
The financial services arm of the Volkswagen Group, Volkswagen Finance, supports the Retailer network with a range of finance and insurance products, including its personal contract plan, Solutions. The combination of brand values and inherent quality along with the flexibility of Solutions could ensure that a customer gets more Volkswagen for their motoring budget. From now until 31 March 2008, Volkswagen Finance is offering a Solutions plan to all retail customers who purchase a new Tiguan. A worked example for the Tiguan 2.0-litre S TDI is set out below:
