In July of the twentieth, the Germans updated their bestselling crossover Volkswagen Tiguan 2 generation, which received an expanded list of equipment, slightly retouched appearance and a “charged” version with the R prefix in the name.
Outside, the restyled Volkswagen Tiguan in 2021 is easily recognizable by the enlarged radiator grille, as well as new head optics in the style of the previously presented Volkswagen Golf 8 hatchback. Like the latter, LED headlights are already included in the base, while matrix optics can be ordered for a surcharge. IQ.Light, where there are 24 diodes in each block.
The bonnet and front fenders were revised, as well as the design of the front bumper, the design of which differs from version to version. The rear bumper has also changed, and even on cars with the R Line package, fake fake exhaust pipes are used here. The lanterns have acquired a modified pattern, and the name of the model flaunts under the emblem on the trunk lid.
Otherwise, the new body of the Volkswagen Tiguan 2021 remains the same and well recognizable, except that from now on, buyers will be offered additional body paint options and rims of the original design with a diameter of 17 to 20 inches. At the same time, the top-end Tiguan R flaunts 21 ″ rollers, an aggressive body kit, blue brake calipers and a suspension lowered by 10 mm.
The interior of the crossover has retained the previous architecture of the front panel, but at the same time the driver is greeted by a new steering wheel with touch-sensitive buttons on the spokes, as well as a fully touch-sensitive air conditioning unit. How convenient we will use it is still a question, but the company hinted that in the foreseeable future this solution will migrate to all European models of the brand.
Another important innovation for the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan is the new generation MIB3 multimedia system, which can have a 6.5 or 9.2 ″ touchscreen. It supports voice control, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and eSIM. For a surcharge, you can order 480-watt Harman / Kardon advanced music.
The line of power units of the new Tiguan for Azerbaijan has remained the same, except that there will be no more 2.0-liter TDI diesel engine for 150 forces. The base is a 1.4-liter turbocharged TSI with 125 hp, which is equipped with a manual transmission and front-wheel drive. A more popular version with a similar engine, but for 150 “horses” can be both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, but it is combined exclusively with a six-band DSG robot.
Also, the crossover can be ordered with a 2.0-liter TSI petrol turbo engine, offered in 180 or 220 power output options. Here, by default, there is a 4Motion all-wheel drive transmission, and the box is a seven-speed DSG robot with two clutches. There are four complete sets for the car: Respect, Status, Exclusive and R-Line.
In the European market for the VW Tiguan 2021 in the new body, the starting engine is the 1.5 TSI with 130 and 150 hp, followed by the 2.0-liter TSI with 190 and 230 hp. “Horses”. The base diesel is a 122-horsepower version of the 2.0 TDI engine, plus a 150-horsepower version has been retained, and a 190-horsepower version. forced up to 200.
Note that earlier in the Old World, a still powerful 240-horsepower diesel engine was offered, but now it was decided to abandon it. Let it still fit into strict eco-standards, but its presence in the line worsens the average performance. All of these engines are paired with a six-speed manual, or with a 7-band DSG robot, the drive can be either front or full.
Also, customers can now choose the Volkswagen Tiguan eHybrid hybrid crossover, equipped with a 1.4-liter TSI petrol and a six-speed DSG robot with an electric motor integrated into it. The total output of the installation reaches 245 hp, while on electric traction this option can stretch up to 50 kilometers (according to the WLTP cycle) at a speed not exceeding 130 km / h.
At the same time, the “charged” Tiguan R flaunts a 320-horsepower (420 Nm) two-liter turbo engine of the EA288 series, as well as the presence of an all-wheel drive in the base, a loud release from Akrapovic and the electronic R-Performance Torque Vectoring system, simulating the operation of an active rear differential due to the distribution of thrust between the rear wheels. But for some reason, the dynamic characteristics have not yet been disclosed.
Acceptance of orders for a SUV in Europe started back in the fall of the twentieth year, while the “Erki” will reach dealers only at the end of the year. It is also expected that the restyled VW Tiguan will later receive a coupe-like version, plus similar changes have been received by the extended version of the Allspace.
