Volkswagen (VW ) says the all-new Tiguan has been proving a hit with Irish buyers and critics alike since it arrived earlier this summer.
And now Volkswagen is offering a new entry-level diesel for the Tiguan with some stunning ‘171’ offers. The new 115bhp 2.0-litre TDI engine for the Tiguan is likely to become the favoured choice of Irish Tiguan customers. This new engine has a starting price of just €30,985 excluding delivery and related charges, or €29,985 if customers order on PCP before December 31.
The Tiguan range starts with the 1.4-TSI petrol with 125bhp from €29,085, and there are 2.0-litre diesel engines with 115bhp and 150bhp, with the range topped by 2.0-litre diesel engines with 190- and 240bhp.
There are three grades of Tiguan: the Trendline, Comfortline, and Highline. On the Comfortline and Highline grades, there is the option to choose the increasingly popular R-Line styling package, which until December 31 is half price. This pack normally retails for €2,860 on the Comfortline but is currently available for just €1,430.
VW point out that the savings do not end there. You can choose a Tiguan Comfortline or Highline, and motorists can get 3.9 per cent APR from Volkswagen Bank, which will provide savings of more than €2,000 in finance costs compared to high-street lenders.
With their 171 premium upgrade packs for the Tiguan, motorists can upgrade the specification of their Tiguan for a fraction of the price of the individual items. For example, in the Comfortline, VW says that motorists will receive: the mirror package, keyless access, panoramic sunroof, discover media satellite navigation, voice control and App Connect. This pack is valued at €3,189 but is available for just €999, providing savings of an additional €2,190.
“The Tiguan, we feel, is the most premium offering in the segment and now customers can get into the Tiguan with even greater added value,” said Volkswagen Passenger Cars Ireland brand director, Gerrit Heimberg. “When you add up all of the potential savings through added value and our finance offers, you can save up to €5,900 on a new Tiguan Comfortline in time for the busy ‘171’ plate, and that is a significant saving on a premium SUV. Plus, for PCP orders placed before December 31 customers can benefit from an additional €1,000 deposit contribution.”
Tiguan offers are available right across the range and for all retail customers who order before December 31.
