Comeback of an R-Line bestseller:
New generation of the Tiguan R-Line will launch in 2012 Most successful German SUV with 19-inch wheels and front sport seats Tiguan R-Line can be delivered with any engine
Wolfsburg / Frankfurt Motor Show
, September 2011. Since its initial launch, the Tiguan has remained the uncontested market leader in Germany.
The Tiguan – which was significantly improved both visually and technically this year – has for a long time been a globally successful model, because it unites the advantages of a compact SUV (high seat position, rugged overall concept, impressive styling, spacious interior) with the properties of modern passenger cars – including very safe driving properties and extremely efficient TDI and TSI engines.
Now, this total package is once again available as an R-Line version, but in the latest generation Tiguan. The Tiguan R-Line celebrates its world debut at the IAA in Frankfurt. The sporty SUV will launch on the German market at the beginning of next year. The Tiguan R-Line is based on the “Sport & Style” version.
19-inch alloy wheels are standard
Outside, the Tiguan R-Line can be recognised by its 19-inch alloy wheels, bumper in R design, R-Line badge on the radiator grille, a rear diffuser with black ribs and an R design rear spoiler in body colour. In addition, the door add-on parts are painted in body colour and are trimmed with chrome accents. The wheel well flares are in sporty black.
Front sport seats are required equipment in the R-Line
Key interior features of the R-line include a sport seat system – like the one also found in the new Tiguan R-Line. The seat system is upholstered in the exclusive, sporty “Kyalami” style fabric as standard, but it may also be ordered in “Vienna” leather as an option.
The sporty Volkswagen’s most prominent brand symbol is the R-Line logo worked into the head restraints; it is also found on the multifunction steering wheel with its aluminium decor. Last but not least, other interior features are the pedals in stainless steel, aluminium door sill plates in front with R-Line logo, and – for the first time in the Tiguan R-Line – a black roofliner.
