The Tiguan is currently the most successful Volkswagen with annual production of well over half a million units – now the new Tiguan is coming to the VW dealers. To coincide with its European market launch, the plug-in hybrid drives (eHybrid) are now available with two outputs (150 kW and 200 kW). Tiguan models with efficient 48 V mild hybrid drives (eTSI) and turbodiesel engines (TDI) have already been available since 2023 September.


Pre-sales of the Tiguan eHybrid have now started. The plug-in hybrid drives of the Tiguan have been completely newly designed by Volkswagen and deliver a system power of 150 kW (204 PS) and 200 kW (272 PS). Thanks to a battery that now offers a capacity of 19.7 kWh (net), the electric range has practically doubled compared with the predecessor. With electric ranges of up to approx. 120 km on a single battery charge, the Tiguan eHybrid models practically become electric cars in everyday life. With the combination of an 85 kW electric drive motor and the new 1.5-litre TSI engine (110 kW or 130 kW), the hybrid model is also impressive on long journeys with low consumption values and combined ranges of more than 900 km. The battery of both models can be charged with up to 11 kW (previously 3.6 kW) at a domestic socket or wall box and with up to 50 kW) at DC quick-charging stations when out and about.


Mid-sized class with premium-class technologies. The new digital cockpit in the high-quality Tiguan interior stands out thanks to its intuitive operation. The IDA voice assistant is also new. It allows numerous vehicle and infotainment functions to be controlled using natural language. In addition, IDA answers questions on all conceivable topics. To do this, the system accesses online databases and – for the first time – the artificial intelligence of ChatGPT. The assist systems have also been further developed: for the first time in the Tiguan, the latest Park Assist systems enable fully automatic driving into and out of parking spaces over a distance of up to 50 metres (memory function) and remote-controlled parking using a smartphone. New adaptive running gear (DCC Pro) optimises comfort and dynamics. New features such as a pneumatic massage function for the front seats and the also new IQ.LIGHT HD matrix headlights have been derived from the Touareg premium-class model.


Tiguan standard equipment* – not basic in any way. The entry-level Tiguan version* is equipped as standard with a range of features such as digital instruments (Digital Cockpit), a 32.8-cm (12.9-inch) infotainment system, a driving experience control (for the driving profiles, for example), Car2X warning system, an additional centre airbag (front) and side airbags at the rear, one-zone Climatronic (automatic air conditioner), USB-C ports, roof rails and assist systems such as Side Assist (lane change assist), Front Assist (emergency braking system), Lane Assist (lane departure warning), Rear View (rear view camera system) and Dynamic Road Sign Display. Also standard are LED headlights and 17-inch alloy wheels. In addition, three further equipment lines are available with the Life, Elegance and R-Line specifications.

The Tiguan eHybrid with 150 kW plug-in hybrid drive (from the Life version upwards) can be configured at prices from 48,655 euros. Standard in all models is an automatic gearbox (DSG).
