Just three weeks after the market introduction of the Tiguan compact SUV, Volkswagen have taken the wraps off their sporty R-Line version at the Essen Motor Show. The R-Line package consists of an interior and exterior upgrade on the Sport and Style variants of the Tiguan.
Most notably, the Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line features a new alloy wheel design dubbed the “Omanyt”. The 19 inch alloy wheels are fitted with 255/40 R19 tyres. The R-Line Tiguan also features unique body panels that Volkswagen designed in parallel with the overall development of the Tiguan making it possible to work them into the style of the Tiguan giving the R-Line a seamless “factory” look.
Interior upgrades of the Tiguan “Plus” R-Line package include front sport seats with the R-Line logo embossed in the headrests and “Monte Carlo” fabric design, multifunctional leather steering wheel, also with R-Line logo, and aluminum pedal caps. Leather sport seats are also offered as an option.
So, if your looking for a Tiguan with a bit of visual bite then the R-Line is the package for you. Currently available in Europe we should expect the R-Line Tiguan to be available in Australia in due course.
