Volkswagen lowers entry point to Tiguan range
New 110TSI variant makes Volkswagen Tiguan more affordable at $34,150 plus ORCs
4 Jun 2019
VOLKSWAGEN Group Australia (VGA) has expanded its Tiguan medium SUV range with the addition of the entry-level 110TSI Trendline and Comfortline, and Allspace 110TSI Comfortline.
If the 110TSI nameplate sounds familiar, VGA previously offered the variant but was forced to withdraw it from sale while awaiting approval under new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) emissions regulations.
Starting at $34,150 plus on-road costs for the 110TSI Trendline, the point of entry to the Tiguan range has dropped by a considerable $9000, while the seven-seat Tiguan Allspace range is now $4500 more accessible with the $40,150 110TSI Comfortline.
The five-seat 110TSI Comfortline sits $4500 above the Trendline at $38,650, while the 132TSI R-Line Edition revealed in April checks in at $46,990, placing it between the 132TSI Comfortline and 162TSI Highline.
The returning 110TSI packages halogen headlights, black roof rails, 17-inch Montana alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, automatic headlights and rain-sensing wipers, and an 8.0-inch Composition infotainment system with App Connect.
Standard safety equipment includes front assist with city emergency braking and pedestrian monitoring, lane assist with adaptive lane keep assist, park assist, driver fatigue monitor, and a rearview camera.
Stepping up to the Comfortline adds an electrically operated tailgate, dynamic LED headlights, 18-inch Kingston alloys, keyless entry/start, electric folding door mirrors, 8.0-inch Discover Media infotainment system, three-zone climate control, overhead storage, carpet mats and chrome roof rails with additional chrome elements.
Options on 110TSI models include metallic or pearl paint ($800), Driver Assistance package ($1700 on Trendline, $1600 on Comfortline), and the Comfortline-only Sound and Vision package ($3200) or Luxury package ($4000).
Both 110TSI models make use of a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine producing 110kW/250Nm, driving the front wheels through a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Meanwhile, the 132TSI R-Line Edition, based on the 132TSI Comfortline, adds the R-Line package as standard, which includes 19-inch Sebring alloys, two-tone ‘Race’ cloth upholstery, the second-generation Active Info Display and tinted windows.
Other standard kit includes an 8.0-inch infotainment system, three-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, front foglights, automatic LED headlights and rain-sensing wipers.
Safety equipment extends to front assist with city autonomous emergency braking, pedestrian monitoring, lane assist, park assist, multi-collision brake, rearview camera and the Driver Assistance Package which bundles adaptive cruise control, side assist, rear traffic alert, traffic jam assist and emergency assist.
The 132TSI employs a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine developing 132kW/320Nm, driving all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
Options are limited to an electric glass sunroof at $2000, or metallic/pearl-effect paint which sets buyers back $800.
Through the first four months of 2019, Tiguan sales have dropped 29.5 per cent to 2379 sales, down on the 3374 new registrations to the same point last year.
