For those who love a solid SUV and of course a fan of the German automakers, well now here is a chance for you to purchase a Volkswagen Tiguan with a price that will put a smile on your face.
Previously the Tiguan only comes with a 2.0TSI version and now there is a 1.4TSI version and do bare in mind that this is not locally assembled unlike the Polo Sedan, Polo 1.6 and the Jetta. The machine is only priced at RM178,888 in Malaysia which is a whopping RM61,000 cheaper compared to the 2.0TSI version. That’s a lot of difference!
Underneath is a 1.4 liter twin charged four cylinder petrol engine that produces about 160 Horsepower and 240Nm of torque. That’s good enough to take you from 0-100km/h in just 8.6 seconds. It surely is fast for an SUV and it is also fuel saving. The 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan consumes only about 7.1 liters of fuel for every 100km it travels.
In terms of safety, you get things like six airbags, Engine Drag Torque Control, Anti-Slip Regulator, ABS with brake assist, flat tyre indicator, Electronic Stability Control System and as well as the rain sensing wipers.
What’s on the inside
Despite the huge price drop, everything on the inside seems pretty much the same compared to the 2.0TSI version. In other words, it feels solid like how a Volkswagen suppose to feel like and of course it’s comfortable too.
Additional Tech Pack
Volkswagen Group Malaysia offers an additional Tech Pack option for the Tiguan 1.4TSI customers. It basically comes with Dual zone climatronic automatic air conditioning, dynamic headlights, bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights, electronic wing mirrors (automatic), premium multi-function display, leather steering wheel, cruise control, auto dimming interior rear view mirror and radio RCD 510 instead of the standard radio RCD 310.
