Handsome and masculine, our courtesy Volkswagen Tiguan brought us around town (and countryside) in style. The new VW Tiguan outline gave a distinct yet refined image.
Be it Urban or Rural backdrop, this ride is always in style.
One might take a second look at the sharply defined contours, the running leds present an imposing presence.
VW Tiguan refused to be subtle.
When you start the car, “SengkangBabies profile” gave us a pleasant welcome. Our ride can customise multiple profiles for different driver.
You can programme your driving style, display and seats, etc. I would hate to re-tune all my favourite settings.
A touch of class and luxury inside the cabin.
Techie drivers would love the abundant automation and infotainment features in this ride, but the “traditional” me got a bit intimidated with all the buttons :p
Touch screen infotainment console paired with Apple Carplay, let music stream into the Dynaudio speakers for a surround experience.
Paranomic sunroof is always the kids’ favourite. Besides a seamless top view from front to end, they keep bugging me to let natural air flow in!
Designed for creature comforts, aircon “on demand” for front and rear passengers. We heard Tiguan’s biogenic filter (unique for SUV line) can prevent pollen and allergens from entering the cabin. This would be welcome news for those who suffer from allergy.
Flip a tray out for your colouring book or even Ipad, kids would be entertained though the journey.
Abundant boot space (600l) for our family. We could easily load shoes and blading gears for our sports outing. We can even fold the middle row to accommodate one or two junior bikes.
“Safety and convenience features”
The Tiguan R-Line comes with VW’s new feature, “Adaptive Cruise Control“. The auto system will help maintain a safe distance from the car infront, we heard “Front Assist” will even brake to prevent an accident.
Volkswagen Tiguan pick up 5stars in euro NCAP tests, making it one of Europe’s safest cars.
Picture below (top left), the Head-up Display unit is pretty cool, we need not look down to check whether we are speeding.
All round sensors will warn the driver if someone is driving too near, so we can take defensive actions.
The sensors also help us to safely navigate our car into tight parking lot. We appreciate the 3D drone-like top view of the car, showing Tiguan’s four corners (and blind spots). Otherwise, we can always auto-park with “Park Assist” (both parallel and vertical parking is possible)
Be it a family car (comfort and safety) or executive SUV (for off-road thrills), Volkswagen Tiguan performs well in both segments.
Our R-Line 380 TSI 2L petrol engine delivers maximum power of 220ps (between 4500 and 6200 rpm) and an impressive maximum torque of 350ps at a low 1500 rpm.
We kept our Volkswagen Tiguan busy with more family activities 🙂
We would like to thanks Volkswagen for the courtesy car, travelling was definitely cooler and more stylish over the weekend.
Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line is retailing from $192,000 (COE inclusive). More photos and specifications can be found on VW website.
