2019 Volkswagen Tiguan gets equipment upgrades

Updated features but price unchanged for Highline and Join variants 

The Volkswagen Tiguan from March 2019 onwards will receive an upgrade in features: new 2019 Active Info Display (AID) and LED taillights.

The new Active Info Display has a high resolution display colour thin-film transistor (TFT), similar to the screen on a smartphone. It incorporates functions and features in 2D and 3D graphic display for navigation and media. There is now a three-view customisable screen via the infotainment with over 30 combinations options. The dials can also be pre-set to show a combination of data and a full 3D view map for better navigation.

On the exterior, the LED taillights have been updated to a new unit with distinctive light graphics. More than a style factor, the new taillight also incorporates brake animation that enhances visibility for safety. The taillights continue to be an all LED system.

The Tiguan’s 1.4-litre turbocharged engine with six-speed direct shift gearbox (DSG) with sport mode also remains unchanged with its output of 150bhp and torque of 250Nm between 1500 to 3500rpm, along with its acceleration from 0 to 100kph in 8.9 seconds .

Safety features in the Tiguan include six airbags, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Multi-collision brakes, Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS), Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) as well as hill-hold control. For comfort, the Tiguan features Park Assist, Manoeuvre Braking and 3-Zone Climatronic. For complete connectivity, the Tiguan comes with App-Connect for easy access to apps via the eight-inch infotainment touchscreen via MirrorLink, Android Auto and Apple Carplay.

The Tiguan’s remains at RM 165,990 for the Highline and RM 175,990 for the JOIN variant. All Volkswagen cars come with 3 years free maintenance, 5 years unlimited mileage warranty and 5 years roadside assistance.
