Volkswagen South Africa has announced pricing for the facelifted Tiguan. Now in its third-generation, the updated Tiguan joins Volkswagen South Africa’s T SUV line-up boasting a sharper exterior design language, new tech and a host of new interior features.

Locally, the four-model line-up will be priced from R521 000 for the entry-level 1,4 TSI variant to R710 000 for the top-of-the-range, 2,0 TSI derivative, featuring the R-Line package. Models equipped with the 1,4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine will be available with the option of either an automatic or Volkswagens’ dual-clutch transmission, and direct 110 kW exclusively to the front wheels. Equipped with a DSG gearbox, the 1,4-litre variants can be specified in either Life or R-Line trim. The range-topping model’s 2,0-litre TSI is linked to a DSG transmission, which directs 162 kW to the road via Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.
