VW Tiguan R-Line - Web Exclusive

The conversion is wrapped up with new 19” ‘Mallory’ wheels in ‘Sterling silver’ with 255/40 R19 tires.

As the most successful SUV sold in Germany, the VW Tiguan has perhaps long been overdue a makeover by Volkswagen R GmbH – the company’s go-fast division.

So now, for European customers at least, the Tiguan is available with R-Line features including exterior and interior packages designed for Sport & Style. The R-Line exterior package includes distinctive R-Design bumpers painted in body color. There are matching side sills with matte chrome inserts, plus a roof spoiler.

Other additions include a black textured rear diffuser, as well as the R-Line logo on the aluminum door sill plates and front grille.

Finally, the conversion is wrapped up with new 19” ‘Mallory’ wheels in ‘Sterling silver’ with 255/40 R19 tires.

The range of colors that can be combined with the R-Line accessories includes the Tiguan’s Candy white, Reflex silver metallic, Deep Black pearl, Night blue metallic and Pepper grey metallic.

On the inside, the R-Line parts can be ordered as an extension pack. In this case, customers can order front sport seats, ‘Kyalami’ seat covers (front and rear) with lateral supports in ‘San Remo’ microfiber (front) and the R-Line logo on the head restraints. There’s also a multifunction steering wheel with aluminum accents and R-Line badge.

Other components can be fitted, such as a Titan black headliner and stainless steel pedals.

While the Tiguan R-Line may not come to the US, VW enthusiasts in search of hard-to-find European parts could do worse than equip their own VW SUV with parts from the R-Line catalog.

Fourteen years is an eternity for a chassis to remain in production without a complete redesign. We rarely see cars, even special interest or sportscars eclipsing the 10-year mark in the Japanese vehicle realm with a single chassis. Sure, it happens, but it’s not a common occurrence though Nissan seems to push those limits as

Alright, you know the drill: new car is introduced and immediately it’s regarded as the worst design of all time, a product of car X and car Y creating an unwanted baby, and, of course, the always popular, “they should have asked me to design it.” It’s expected in modern times, especially with social media’s

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte. It probably doesn’t have any intention of attacking the clock at a weekend track day, and certainly doesn’t aspire to climb a

Nothing makes Super Street fans angrier than a prototype or rendering and up until now, that’s all we could offer regarding the 11th gen. Honda Civic. The burnt orange Civic sedan prototype that we talked about in November of last year signified a new direction for Honda who, at least in the enthusiast market, spent

You don’t find many older Hondas in the sort of condition that this 1985 Civic 1500S was found in and, if you do, and you’re immediately hit with throwback vibes and rich memories of piloting the same sort of chassis during “spirited driving encounters” on the streets 30-or-so years prior, then you don’t let it
