New VW Tiguan R – South African pricing revealed

VW has revealed the local pricing of the new Tiguan R, which is scheduled to go on sale in South Africa later this month.

The new SUV will have a South African starting price of R999,900, making it the top-spec model in the Tiguan line-up.

Each purchase will also include a 3-year/120,000km warranty and a 5-year/100,000km maintenance plan.

Tiguan R specs

Under the hood of the new Tiguan R is a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine producing 235kW and 400Nm, linked to VW’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system and a seven-speed DSG gearbox.

This gives the sporty SUV an acceleration from 0-100km/h of 5.1 seconds, just 0.3 seconds slower than its hatchback counterpart – the Golf R – with top speed clocking in at 250km/h.

Alongside the uprated powerplabnt, VW has made several other changes to improve the Tiguan’s performance.

This consists of an upgraded chassis, new adaptive shock absorbers, torque vectoring, 18-inch brakes with blue calipers, and a 10mm-lower ride height.

Owners will also be able to select various driving profiles, including Sport and a model-specific “R” mode, which is activated via a blue R button found on the multifunction steering, which is also equipped with paddle shifters.

Visually, the R differentiates itself from its siblings with a matte chrome finish to the exterior, new bumpers with R branding, black wheel arches, and a set of 20-inch Misano alloy wheels.

Inside, owners can expect keyless start and entry, cruise control, a panoramic sunroof, climate control, front and rear park assist, ambient lighting, a carbon grey finish on the dashboard and interior panels, and seats upholstered in Nappa leather styled with an R logo.

Additionally, the Tiguan comes with a 10.25-inch all-digital driver display, and VW’s Discovery Pro 8-inch infotainment system with satellite navigation, wireless App-Connect, and voice commands.

Optional extras on the SUV then comprise adaptive cruise control, LED Matrix headlamps, larger 21-inch Estoril wheels, a heads-up display, a Harman Kardon sound system, an area view camera with park assist, lane change assist, trailer assist, and autonomous emergency braking.
