Volkswagen Ireland has just announced their pricing structure for the new Tiguan SUV.
The Tiguan is due to arrive in Irish showrooms this July and will start from €29,720. This price represents the 1.4 TSI petrol version, which offers 125bhp.
The Tiguan 2.0-litre TDI with 150bhp is probably going to be a bigger seller in Ireland and the entry price we have been given for it is €33,765. There is a choice of two-wheel and 4Motion all-wheel drive with this offering. A two-wheel drive-only is available with the 2.0 diesel with 115bhp (available from 2017). We are also told that there will be two other options available in Ireland with 190bhp and 240bhp – as of yet pricing has not been confirmed on these.
There will be three trims of Tiguan available; Trendline, Comfortline and Highline. Entry-level Trendline cars will don 17 inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, Bluetooth & USB. This trim will also benefit from ESC, Lane Assist, ISOFIX and city automatic emergency braking.
Volkswagen Ireland’s Head of Operations, Paul Burke, said, “There has been a huge shift towards SUVs here in Ireland, and Volkswagen’s new Tiguan will install itself as the premium offering in this segment thanks to the fabulous build quality, increased interior and luggage space and generous equipment levels.”
The Tiguan’s prices stretch up to €41,015 for the 2.0 TDI 150bhp 4Motion Highline model. We’re told that this model, with its 7-speed DSG gearbox, will cost €390 per annum to tax. The 6-speed manual AWD version costs €280 to tax, while the front wheel drive manual costs €270. Volkswagen has now opened up the order books for the Tiguan.
