An aggressive new model is set to join the Tiguan range this summer with the introduction of the new R Line model promising stylish new body additions on the outside and greater comfort inside.

Designed and built by Volkswagen Individual, a separate engineering wing of Volkswagen established in 2003 and assigned to special projects including the Passat R36 and Touareg R50, the new Tiguan R Line features significant visual changes over the standard Tiguan.

The basis for the new R Line is the Sport model added to which is a new body-colored front splitter sitting below the front bumper along with a unique matt chrome grille section. Blistered wheel arches surround new R Line 19-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels fitted with 255/40 tires to lend the Tiguan a more purposeful stance. Next, a set of subtle body-color sill extensions complete with matt chrome highlights are fitted leading into the new rear bumper complete with a small diffuser element. Finally, a small spoiler sits at the top of the rear window to complete the new look.

Advanced 2Zone climate control is also fitted as standard in addition to the already comprehensive range of standard equipment fitted to the Sport model. This includes four airbags, automatic lights, front fog lights, rain sensors and sports suspension.

The new R Line model is available fitted with a range of efficient 2.0-litre TDI common rail diesel engines in 140 PS and 170 PS outputs as well as a 2.0-litre TSI engine developing 200 PS. The Tiguan R Line can be specified with a choice of five colors; Candy White (pictured), Reflex Silver, Deep Black, Biscay Blue and Mountain Grey.
