VW Tiguan, Performance SUV
The new VW Tiguan already a popular choice for compact luxury SUV buyers in Malaysia. The Tiguan is a SUV that carries design parallels from the larger luxury filled VW Touareg SUV. This Tiguan is a SUV with a powerful yet fuel-efficient engine. The Tiguan is the first SUV in the world to be offered exclusively with a charged engine.
This new Tiguan comes with the most powerful 4-cylinder petrol engine which is also used in the iconic Volkswagen Golf GTI . This allows the Tiguan to provide sports car like performance on a day to day drive in the city and on the open highway. It is an award winning engine that has taken global awards year after year since its world introduction.
Drive the Tiguan hard and its power delivery is relentless, with 280Nm making itself felt from the depths of the rev counter, surging this SUV forward with tenacity and a lovely engine note as the DSG works buttery smooth at every gearchange. Every high-rev gearchange is rewarded with a faint ‘boom’ from the tailpipes too, just like in the Golf GTI. Find an old village road and let the Tiguan loose and you will still feel the fluidity and poise about the way it changes direction. During second gear corners you can feel the four-wheel drive’s brain directing traction to the wheels that need it, pulling the car around, yet it does that while allowing you the sense that you’re still in control. It is rapid with a clinical four-wheel drive traction that is surprisingly interactive.
This engine produces 210 PS (between 5300 and 6200 rpm). Its maximum torque of 280 Newton metres is constantly available from 1700 to 5300 rpm. The 210 PS engine takes the vehicle to an easy top speed of 215 km/h; this Tiguan accelerates to 100 km/h from rest in just 7.8 seconds. Despite its high power output, the TSI engine in the Tiguan is also fuel-efficient.
