In this review, we are going to take a closer look at the Volkswagen Tiguan. We will examine the details about the Volkswagen Tiguan under three main categories such as The Features of the Volkswagen Tiguan, The Fuel Consumption of the Volkswagen Tiguan and Basic Characteristics of Volkswagen Tiguan. These categories prepared for explaining the vehicle from any perspective. Before beginning the review, I would like to share some general information about the history of the Volkswagen Tiguan. Volkswagen Tiguan was first produced by the German automaker Volkswagen Group in 2007 to create an important model in the Crossover SUV class. The car has a two-generation history, and the first generation was based on the PQ46 Platform. The name of the car was designated "Tiguan", a combination of the German words tiger and iguana. This name even won an award.
The Features of the Volkswagen Tiguan
In this part of the review, we are going to focus on the features of the Volkswagen Tiguan. We can start with the exterior design of the Volkswagen Tiguan. The new generation Tiguan was first introduced to the public at the International Motor Show Germany held in Frankfurt in 2015. Unlike the first generation, the new generation Tiguan, built on Volkswagen's MQB Platform, has quite different design features compared to the previous generations. First of all, the body design has been made much more masculine and powerful. The new Tiguan, which has a wider and longer body design, also has much sharper body lines and sporty body details. This puts the car in a dynamic and solid characteristic mood as a Crossover SUV. Also, the front and rear lights have been made very attractive. The similarity of the details on the headlights with the Passat does not go unnoticed. In short, Tiguan, which always looks smaller next to the Touareg model, seems to be able to stand up to the big league with its new design. Now, we are moving on to the interior design of the Volkswagen Tiguan. When we look closely at the interior of the Tiguan, the first thing that catches our attention is the feeling of Volkswagen quality all over the cabin. While the dark colour tones in the cabin create a very stylish image, the beauty of the details used in the cabin makes the atmosphere very luxurious. The large and touchscreen multimedia screen in the centre console can meet most needs. At the same time, the other centre console located at the bottom has various settings for the driver to change the driving dynamics of the car. The convenience of the cabin shows that a driver-oriented design concept is important. This allows the driver to keep his attention on the road and provide a much safer driving experience.
The Fuel Consumption of the Volkswagen Tiguan
Now, we are going to focus on the fuel consumption of the Volkswagen Tiguan. We usually work on popular engine types and making analyses on them by checking details for an efficient fuel consumption analysis. While choosing the right car, you need specific and simple information. That is why we are using this distinction method to make things easier for you. We use two main categories to make a useful distinction such as The Most Economical One and The Most Powerful One. Volkswagen Tiguan has got five standard engine varieties such as 1.4 TSI, 1.5 TSI, 1.6 TDI, 2.0 TDI and 2.0 TSI. We are going to analyse two of them as the most economical and the most powerful one. We can start with the most economical one which is 1.6 TDI. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 1598 cm3 size. It is using a Diesel feed fuel system so we can say that it is a Diesel type engine. It can produce 115 HP and 4000 RPM Torque. According to the official factory data, 1.6 TDI has got a 5,0lt/100km (which refers to 56 MPG in the UK) mpg performance in Urban usage. However, this fuel consumption rate decreasing to 4,0lt/100km (which refers to 71 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage such as Highways or Long-Distance Trip. When we combine these mpg data, we get a 4,0lt/100km (which refers to 71 MPG in the UK) average mpg performance. Now we will focus on the most powerful engine, which is 2.0 TSI. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 1984 cm3 size. It is a Petrol Type Engine which produces 230 Horsepower and 4500 RPM Torque. 2.0 TSI has got a 9,0lt/100km (which refers to 31 MPG in the UK) fuel consumption in Urban usage. On the other hand, this MPG rate decreasing to 6,0lt/100km (which refers to 47 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage. When we gather these two fuel consumption data, we get a 7,0lt/100km (which refers to 40 MPG in the UK) average fuel consumption data.
