Volkswagen adds R-Line to Tiguan line-up

Volkswagen has added a new trim level to its Tiguan line-up, the R-Line, which adds a number of sporty styling touches.

In the first generation, the R-Line was one of the most popular Tiguan models, accounting for nearly 20 per cent of the total sales.  Renewed for the latest model, the R-Line is now expected to be the choice of a quarter of Tiguan customers.

The new Tiguan R-Line is based on the SE trim level, and adds bi-xenon headlights, 18-inch ‘Mallory’ alloy wheels, painted in Sterling Silver with black wheelarch extensions, body-coloured unique front and rear ‘R’ design bumpers and rear spoiler, an R-Line logo on the front grille and aluminium front door sills with R-Line logo.

The R-Line is available with the Tiguan’s three most powerful engines; the 2.0-litre TSI with 210 PS and 4MOTION four-wheel drive, plus Volkswagen’s popular 2.0-litre common rail TDI engine with either 140 or 170 PS and 4MOTION.

All R-Line models come with a standard six-speed manual gearbox.  CO2 emissions for all models are under 200 g/km: the petrol model emits 199 g/km, while the diesels are at 150 and 158 g/km for the 140 and 170 PS respectively.

On the road prices start at £28,020 for the R-Line 140 PS.  There is a £680 premium for the 170 PS diesel, with the petrol model costing £28,435.
