Wolfsburg, 27 May 2015 —— For over seven years, the Tiguan has been one of the world’s most coveted Volkswagen models. Volkswagen has updated some key equipment specifications of the Tiguan for the new model year. Along with a new generation of engines, the compact SUV now also boasts new radio and radio navigation systems.
The Tiguan has been one of Volkswagen’s global best sellers for more than seven years. The popular all-rounder is now raising the stakes again with the modernisation of its engine range: as of now, the 2-litre diesel engines will have more power. The output of the 103 kW engine was increased to 110 kW*, while the 130 kW engine now delivers 135 kW**. At the same time, CO2 emissions have been cut by up to 17 g/km, and all engines comply with the EU6 emissions standard.
Based on the latest generation of the modular infotainment matrix, the entertainment systems available in the Tiguan have also been significantly upgraded. The previous radio systems have been replaced by Composition Colour and Composition Media (with features including colour touchscreen, eight loudspeakers and a variety of connections for external devices). The available radio navigation system is now Discover Media, which comes with the Volkswagen online services package Guide & Inform, as standard.
Composition Media and Discover Media can also be ordered with App Connect as an option. With this feature, Volkswagen enables integration and use of a wide range of smartphone apps from the Google and Apple Stores. There is also the option of adding Media Control. This new app-based extension of the infotainment system allows to easily control functions from a tablet (e.g. entering navigation data, selecting a radio station etc.) – even by rear-seat passengers.
