Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line is the range-topping specification in the Tiguan family. The German automaker decided to boost the specification of the line-up and is adding satellite navigation as standard. In fact, the model has been the fifth best-selling one in Volkswagen's family of vehicles. And with this change in the R-Line, the company is ensuring that it will continue to be appealing to customers that search for a genuine 4x4, comfort and safety in one place.

Tiguan R-Line is positioned above the Match trim. It runs on 18-inch wheels and features sports suspension, bi-xenon headlights, an R-Line styling pack. The latter comprises of unique bumpers, side skirts and badging. There are also bespoke interior features including sport seats with R-Line logo, black roof lining and upholstery upgrade.

The aforementioned features come on the top of the Match specification that has been already equipped with RNS 315 colour touchscreen satellite navigation system and Bluetooth, MDI media interface with leads for iPhone and USB, CD/DVD player, SD card provision, DAB digital radio and Park Assist.  There is also a leather-trimmed multifunction steering wheel and gear lever, along with standard 2Zone climate control and folding picnic tables on the back of the front seats.

On all Tiguans the rear seats split 60:40 and can be moved lengthways, thus ensuring up to 16 cm additional luggage space or legroom. The backrest angle can be adjusted by 23 degrees. There is also the option of folding the rear seats in order to increase luggage capacity from 470 to 1,510 litres. The front passenger seat backrest can also be folded forwards, to create a load space that is up to 2.5 metres long.
