The popular German crossover Volkswagen Tiguan has been updated at all regional car markets. After the USA, the restyled SUV was received by the brand’s customers from China. In this country, the model receives the letter “L” in the name – a hint of the grown-up dimensions. The release of such a German crossover, which is sold only in China, is established at the SAIC Volkswagen joint venture.
Volkswagen Tiguan L is an analogue of the “stretched” modification of the Tiguan Allspace for Europe. Moreover, such a long-wheelbase SUV has been updated in the same way as the global Tiguan. The crossover received redesigned bumpers, original head optics and other taillights.
At the same time, the Tiguan L added a little in length – about 2.3 cm and now reaches the mark of 4735 mm. In the interior of the novelty there is an improved multimedia, a separate touchscreen for controlling the “climate”, and for the performance of the R-Line, the manufacturer has provided a steering wheel with touch buttons.
If you pay extra, the cross will be equipped with a third row of seats. Among the available engines, the previous power plants are declared: these are 1.4 and two-liter gasoline engines, producing 150, 186 and 220 hp.
In conjunction with them, a seven-speed robot and an all-wheel drive system work.
The 211-horsepower hybrid Tiguan L gets an electric motor, a 1.4-liter turbo engine, a six-speed “robot” and front-wheel drive. Sales of the updated Volkswagen Tiguan L in China will start this summer.
