Volkswagen Tiguan Adventure on sale in Australia


Following a plethora of special Golfs, the run of limited edition Volkswagen products continues this week with the launch of the Tiguan Adventure.

Based on the mid-spec Comfortline 132TSI petrol and 110TDI diesel models, the Tiguan Adventure introduces some new equipment to the local range, including a newly designed front bumper with a 24-degree approach angle for more off-road ability and a 14-way powered driver’s seat with massaging functionality.

Priced from $43,990 for the 132TSI and $44,490 plus on-road costs for the 110TDI, the Tiguan Adventure also adds LED headlights with LED daytime driving lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, electric-folding mirrors with puddle lamps, an electric tailgate with hands-free functionality and under body protection.

Inside the Tiguan Adventure, Volkswagen has also taken the opportunity to add extra equipment, including half cloth/suede ‘comfort sport’ upholstery with heated front seats. The driver’s seat has been upgraded to a 14-way electric adjustable unit with memory functionality and even massaging ability, using the car’s lumbar adjustment.

Finally, a new colour from the Mk7.5 Golf, Atlantic Blue, is available and roof racks from the Volkswagen Genuine Accessory range have been added to ‘increase practicality whilst touring’.

Being a Volkswagen, there are optional extras available, including $700 metallic paint, a $2,000 panoramic sunroof and a $2,000 Driver Assistance Package, which adds radar cruise control, Volkswagen’s Active Info Display digital dials, blind-spot monitoring with rear traffic alert, lane assist with lane departure warning and a 360-degree parking camera with automatic parallel and 90-degree parking.
