2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Adventure revealed

VW has released an outdoorsy-spec Tiguan that’s the motoring equivalent of glamping

The Volkswagen Tiguan has a new ‘off-roader’ model that’s more dirt capable but equipped with a host of new interior creature comforts.

The Tiguan Adventure is based on the mid-spec 132TSI and 110TDI Comfortline grades with the addition of off-road inspired styling and design elements including a front bumper that raises the approach angle to 24-degrees, increased underbody protection, and the addition of aluminium front door-sill inlays.

The interior has been spruced up for touring work with a 14-way adjustable driver's seat with electric lumbar adjustment and massage function for those extra-long drives, plus Art Velours microfleece upholstery and heated front seats.

Other additions over the Comfortline spec include LED headlights and daytime running lights, larger 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, electric tailgate, and power folding door mirrors.

It also comes with factory accessory roof bars as standard.

Priced at $43,990 and $45,490 for the 132TSI Adventure and 110TDI models respectively, the Adventure models cost $2500 more than the comparative Comfortline models.

Options include premium paint including a unique Atlantic Blue Metallic hue ($700), driver assistance package that includes active cruise control and lane keeping assist ($2000), and a panoramic sunroof ($2000). 

Performance is the generally the same as the models it’s based on. The turbo-petrol 132TSI produces 132kW/320Nm, while the turbo-diesel 110TDI pushes out 110kW/340kW. Both are coupled to a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

The Tiguan Adventure is now available at Volkswagen dealers.
