Volkswagen Tiguan widened the engine line

The German concern decided to add a choice to its customers from Europe that meet the new Eonorm Euro 6d-TEMP. Now the version with 1.4-liter TSI is not available for purchase, and its place was taken by the 1.5-liter version.

Volkswagen is experiencing hard times in Europe due to new environmental standards and the new WLTP fuel efficiency standard. Because of its extensive model range, the concern did not have time to carry out the necessary modifications and also to certify them, but now Tiguan has lost all its shortcomings and is ready for a new stage in life in Europe.

The junior version of the seven-seater SUV lost its 1.4-liter turbo engine, and instead it uses a 1.5-liter TSI Evo engine. This motor is offered in two power options for 130 and 150 horsepower. Unfortunately, an all-wheel drive for this version is not available, and a robotized transmission in 7 stages is offered only in the older version of the engine.

The version with the 2.0-liter engine remained the same, and the engine, after the modification, became more powerful by 10 horsepower and is now offered in versions for 190 and 230 forces. The diesel version is still in the line, but now the 2.0-liter turbodiesel is offered only in versions for 150 and 190 horses.

Unfortunately, the youngest modification for 115 forces, and also the oldest one for 240 forces are still excluded from the line.
