VW Launches New Tiguan Offroad In Europe For Those Who Venture Off The Beaten Path

Volkswagen has extended the Tiguan family with the introduction of the new Offroad variant, that made its debut at this year’s Moscow Auto Show.

The new VW Tiguan Offroad features the 4Motion four-wheel drive system as standard, with Active Control and three driving modes called ‘Onroad’, ‘Offroad’ and ‘Snow’.

Depending on the selected mode, the driving and assistance systems are being adjusted accordingly. This helps the VW Tiguan Offroad tackle the respective terrain better, improving traction and making sure that it can escape from some sticky or slippery situations better than its siblings.

One doesn’t have to be a Volkswagen aficionado to tell the Tiguan Offroad apart from the other versions, as all they have to do is take a look at the redesigned bumpers with silver applications, which give this Tiguan a ramp angle of 24 degrees. And there’s a special ‘Offroad’ badge as well.

Other features include an integrated engine skid plate, blackened chrome tips, black roof rails and side mirror covers, in addition to a selection of six different colors. These are called Atlantic Blue Metallic, Indium Grey Metallic, Oryx White Pearl, Pure Grey, Pure White and Tungsten Silver Metallic. Furthermore, the SUV is also available in a two-tone look, with black roof combined with the ‘Offroad Plus’ package, available as an optional extra.

The 18-inch Sebring alloy wheels are standard, but customers can upgrade to the 19-inch Auckland and Victoria Falls, or 20-inch Kapstadt.

Inside, the VW Tiguan Offroad gets Austin fabric, black headliner, comfort front seats, multifunction steering wheel and gear knob wrapped in leather, aluminum trim, stainless steel pedals and rubber floor mats.

Active Lighting System, Dynamic Light Assist and dynamic cornering light are standard, whereas the Discover Pro navigation system, Active Info Display digital instrument cluster, Trailer Assist and DCC adaptive chassis control are available at an extra cost.

In Germany, Volkswagen is offering the Tiguan Offroad with a range of petrol and diesel engines, starting with the 150 PS (148 hp / 110 kW) TDI, married to a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission. All versions come with 4WD and DSG as standard, and the base model starts from €40,925 ($46,930) locally.
