Volkswagen Tiguan models: what’s included
There are three TSI petrol engines between four Volkswagen Tiguan variants, with different equipment levels to match. Here’s what you need to consider when buying a used Volkswagen Tiguan.
Volkswagen Tiguan 110TSI Trendline
Starting with the RWD base model Trendline, you’ll get a 1.4L petrol engine, 6-speed DSG transmission, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Trendline features standard equipment like anti-lock braking system, brake assist, electronic differential lock, stability control, roof rails, driver fatigue detection, lane assist, bluetooth connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, split folding rear seats, tilt and telescopic multi-function steering wheel, and rain sensing wipers. With all the equipment and features that the Trendline offers, it certainly doesn’t feel like an entry-level car.
Volkswagen Tiguan 110TSI Comfortline / 132TSI Comfortline / 110TSI Comfortline Allspace
The Comfortline model comes with either the RWD 6-speed DSG transmission 1.4L petrol engine or AWD 7-speed DSG transmission 2.0L petrol engine. For the seven-seater version of the Tiguan, choose the Comfortline Allspace. It switches up to 18-inch alloy wheels, and adds features like keyless entry and start, chrome exterior trim, luggage floor net, tri-zone climate control, and comfort front seats with lumbar adjustment. All three Comfortline models deliver on convenience, safety, and comfort, perfect for city drivers and families who like to get away on weekends.
Volkswagen Tiguan 162TSI Highline / 162TSI Highline Allspace / 140TDI Highline Allspace
The Volkswagen Tiguan Highline variant includes one five-seater and two Allspace seven-seaters. They all share the same engine size, with differing power output across the variants. Along with everything from the Trendline and Comfortline, the Highline adds 19-inch alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control, rear traffic alert, leather-appointed seats, heated front seats (and second row outer seats on Allspace models), premium LED rear tail lights, voice command system. Highline buyers can also opt for the R-line package, which features additional performance-oriented exterior and interior finishes.
