2014 VW Tiguan and Touareg R-Line Unveiled

Volkswagen has announced the introduction of the "performance inspired" R-Line versions of the Tiguan and Touareg. The 2014 Tiguan R-Line and Touareg R-Line are the latest R-Line models after the new CC R-Line and recently introduced Beetle R-Line.

The Touareg R-Line and Tiguan R-Line models feature an aggressive appearance package and interior enhancements that provide an all-around dynamic and sporting appearance. The Tiguan R-Line builds on the Tiguan SEL model. The R-Line is available in front-wheel-drive or 4Motion all-wheel-drive configuration and is powered by a 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

On the outside, the R-Line features unique "Mallory" 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, body-colored side-skirts featuring chrome trim, wheel arch extensions, a rear spoiler; and Bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights. Inside, the Tiguan R-Line features "metallic-finish" dash and door trim, a flat-bottom R-Line steering wheel with paddle shifters, stainless-steel R-Line scuff plates and aluminum sport pedals. The Tiguan R-Line also gets a 400-watt Fender audio system.


The Touareg R-Line adds a host of dynamic and sporty elements to the long list of standard equipment on the Touareg Lux trim. Naturally, all Touareg models come standard with 4Motion all-wheel drive mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and the R-Line adds a sport-tuned suspension to either the 3.6-liter VR6 gasoline or 3.0-liter TDI Clean Diesel engine.


The Touareg R-Line adds 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, a unique front bumper fascia, side skirts, R-Line badges, LED taillights and oval-shaped dual exhaust tips at the rear. Inside, the R-Line theme continues with unique high-gloss black and brushed aluminum trim on the dashboard, center console and doors. Stainless-steel R-Line scuff plates, aluminum sport pedals, and an R-Line steering wheel.


Both models will be unveiled next week at the 2013 Detroit Auto How and will go on sale in the third quarter of 2013.
