The new 240 PS bi-turbo diesel will also offer an increase of 30 PS over the previous most powerful Tiguan, the 2.0 TSI.
The new engine is similar to that offered in the current Volkswagen Passat, and boasts a high-performance cylinder head and two-stage turbo charger. The injection pressure of the common-rail piezo injection system is a mighty 2,500 bar and the engine is capable of generating up to 120 PS per litre.
With this being mated to Volkswagen’s 4motion four-wheel drive system, it has given the new Tiguan fantastic performance in the mainstream SUV segment, with the vehicle being able to hit 0-62 mph in just 6.5 seconds.
Coupled with a start/stop system and battery regen, VW’s flagship SUV has CO2 emissions of just 167 g/km.
Outside of this bi-turbo diesel engine, VW are also offering three petrol engines for purchase. The most powerful, a 2.0 TSI 180 PS, is available with a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG transmission and is offered as standard with 4motion four-wheel drive.
No matter which engine you choose, you will have a choice from either the range-topping SEL or R-Line trims.
The Tiguan SEL packs a technological punch with standard features such as an 8 inch touch-screen with Volkswagen’s Discover Navigation infotainment and satellite navigation system. In addition the SEL comes with Active Info Display – a 12.3-inch high-resolution TFT screen which replaces conventional analogue instruments and can be configured to show a variety of information about the car, or even relay sat nav guidance.
Meanwhile the R-Line offers the same features available on the SEL, but with unique styling features inside and out. A roof spoiler is joined by a rear diffuser and a front air intake to highlight the kerb appeal of the car. The alloy wheels measure 20-inches and the bumper design is unique to the trim.
On the inside, the R-Line has sill protectors and carpet mats, stainless steel pedals and a black rooflining to complete the look.
The addition of these two new engine options in Tiguan completes the model’s seven-strong powerplant range, which now extends from 1.4 TSI 125 PS to 2.0 BiTDI 240 PS.
With average personal leasing prices for the 2.0 TDi BMT 190 4motion R-Line coming in at £417 and £386 for the 2.0 TDi BMT 190 4motion SEL, will the Tiguan make it to your leasing list?
