The Tiguan has smooth curves around the body and hood lines that converge to the front grille, it also has a roof rail completing a tough yet classy look. It sports 17-inch wheels multi spoke wheels.
Inside is all about comfort - from the spacious legroom in all seats, leather-covered multi-function drive wheel, Cruise Control, Climatronic Dual-Zone Air Conditioning, Keyless-Go entry/exit, and Push Start system. A Hill Hold system is a standard in all models to prevent the Tiguan from unintentional downward movement for 2-seconds during a climb or descent.
The Tiguan has a 1.4L gasoline engine for the base model, producing 121 hp with 200 Nm of torque paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. On the other hand, the Business Edition has a 2.0L diesel engine that churns out 138hp with 320Nm of torque and employs a 4-wheel drive system.
The compact crossover market in the Philippines is highly-competitive and overcrowded. Volkswagen Philippines answers the call for a classy, German-engineered SUV that offers versatility and practicality for the Filipino family.
Along with the new Jetta and Polo sedans, Volkswagen Philippines adds a new member to their increasingly strong lineup – the Tiguan Business Edition. This is now the top-of-the-line variant of this diesel-powered compact SUV which boasts premium upgrades inside and out.
The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan scored a 5-star safety rating during the recent European New Car Assessment Program (ENCAP) crash test. This is the maximum number of stars that a vehicle can receive from the said independent consumer protection organization.
