Just three weeks after market introduction of the Tiguan, Volkswagen is presenting the sporty R-Line equipment packages for the new SUV at the Essen Motor Show. They consist of an interior package and an exterior package. Since R-Line equipment takes a dynamic approach, it is exclusively available on the Sport & Style version of the Tiguan.

A key visual feature of the new Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line: the “Omanyt” type alloy wheels. The 19 inch wheels are equipped with size 255/40 R19 tires. Moreover, the Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line is easy to recognize by a whole series of specific body modifications. Volkswagen design developed all body parts in parallel to overall vehicle development, and so it was possible to work them into the style on the new SUV in an especially homogeneous way.

Interior upgrades of the Tiguan “Plus” R-Line package include sport seats (front) with R-Line logo embossed in the headrests and “Monte Carlo” fabric design, multifunctional leather steering wheel, also with R-Line logo, and aluminum pedal caps. Leather sport seats are also offered as an option.
