The entry-level SE Navigation model for the UK market is powered by a 1.4 TSI engine producing 150 HP and 250 Nm, hooked up to 6-speed manual and the front wheels. The same SE trim level combined with the 150 HP 2.0-liter TDI means you'll have to pay £31,550.
But you don't want that; you probably want the 4WD version with the 7-speed automatic, which will set you back £34,905.
The SE Navigation model is better equipped than the American model, though. It comes with 18-inch aluminum wheels, parking sensors, 3-zone climate control, the Discover Navigation infotainment with an 8.0-inch touchscreen display, DAB radio, and navigation... obviously. Volkswagen. Another difference is that the 7-seat configuration is also standard. With all four seats in place, there are 230 liters of trunk space, while folding the back bench results in 700 liters of space.
Step up to the Tiguan Allspace SEL, and you will receive the 12.3-inch digital screen in place of the analog dial, as well as sportier front seats with 14-way adjustment, a panoramic sunroof, 19-inch wheels and more. You probably wouldn't enjoy those feature in anything but the top-end version of American Tiguan. So the £32,545 base price of the SEL doesn't sound too bad.
The most expensive version of this would be the £39,965 2.0 TDI with 240 HP and 500 Nm of torque. Honestly, that's more power and torque than you would expect from a four-cylinder turbo engine.
And finally, the Tiguan Allspace is expected to have an R-Line version in the first quarter of 2018. Bigger wheels, a body kit and sportier design - honestly, it's what everybody wants.
