Volkswagen have introduced the fabulous new Tiguan at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt. Four versions of the new Tiguan were on display at the show, which took place earlier in September. Three of these are production versions: the sporty Tiguan R-Line, a classic on-road model and an off-road version. A concept version – the Tiguan GTE – was on show, this plug-in hybrid model offers a glimpse into the future of this popular model.
Makes an impression time after time.
With its striking design the new Tiguan immediately exudes a powerful presence wherever it appears. Noticeably streamlined, sharper and even more precise, it exhibits a new design language. This is continued in the interior and will make an impression time after time.
Car-Net Security & Service Sets The Benchmark And Safety Standards.
Whether you want to check the fuel level, mileage or notes on the next service inspection: the optional Car‑Net Security & Service feature ensures that all the relevant information on your vehicle is available at a glance. Should the car be involved in a serious accident, the system automatically contacts the Volkswagen Customer Centre to transmit vehicle data and the accident location. In addition, local assistance is automatically requested, depending on the situation.

Car-Net App-Connect.On-Road, Off-road But Never Offline.
Expand your cockpit: with the optional Car-Net App Connect you can use smartphone apps even when you’re on the move. Simply, safely and conveniently via the centre console display. A total of three interfaces are available for this purpose: MirrorLink™ provides an appropriate app for practically every situation. Android Auto™ enables you to operate suitable Android apps – and with CarPlay™ from Apple, selected apps from your iPhone are just the touch of a button away.
The new Tiguan doesn’t just take you off on new adventures – it is an adventure in itself. The optional 4MOTION Active Control provides four precisely tailored settings for various types of terrain. In on-road mode, you can also use the Driver Profile Selection to choose one of five profiles – for example, the fuel-efficient Eco mode or particularly the dynamic Sport mode.
A striking design and ultra-modern connectivity, combined with a pioneering drive concept: the “PHEV concept car”, the plug-in hybrid version, permits zero-emission driving in electric-only mode – and without any noise.
Even more impressive is the feeling when the electric drive and combustion engine unleash their power at the same time. This combination of driving dynamics and efficiency turns the PHEV concept car into the best SUV in its class.
