One of the most old cars in the compact SUV segment, the current generation Volkswagen Tiguan gets some updates for the 2015 model. It is the only way to keep the clients close to the car and offer them some fresh technology and improved engines.
The modernisation of its engine means the 2-litre diesel engines will have more power. The output of the standard engine was increased to 150 hp, while the 170 hp engine now delivers 177 hp. 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 The previous radio systems have been replaced by Composition Colour and Composition Media (with features including colour touchscreen, eight loudspeakers and a variety of connections for external devices).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.
