Volkswagen Tiguan Interior & Exterior Design

The Volkswagen Tiguan isn't a particularly eye-catching SUV, but some recent tweaks have given it a fresh, modern design.

Overview

The Tiguan looks more straightforward and conventional with its beefy SUV looks, compared to some of its jazzier SUV rivals, like the Peugeot 3008. But it’s still one of Volkswagen’s best selling cars and a solid all-rounder in the family SUV market.

You get five trims to choose from with the Tiguan, each with slightly different styling. So here’s a breakdown of the visual differences:

Trims

Life

carwow price from £27,832

Exterior

With the entry-level Life trim you get the Frankfurt 18-inch alloys as standard, and they look smart and well proportioned to the rest of the car. You even get some chrome accents along the front grille, roof bars, and tinted rear windows.

Interior

The Tiguan doesn’t have the most inspiring interior, but all the trims get the same infotainment screen and touch sensitive climate control buttons. You get two choices of cloth upholstery on the Life, but if you want to treat yourself, tick the Vienna leather upholstery option.

Active

Currently unavailable on carwow

Exterior

The Active trim might get some added tech, but frustratingly you can only get 17-inch alloy wheels. The Tiguan’s a big car and they’re almost lost under the wheel arches. You still get tinted rear windows and roof bars, though.

Interior

Comfort front seats and a different upholstery design come with the Active trim. You even get some chrome detailing around the doors and stainless steel pedals. The leather heated steering wheel is the real game changer, though.

Elegance

carwow price from £33,446

Exterior

If you like chrome details, you’ll love the Elegance trim. It’s got chrome edging all around the windows, the front grille, and it even has some at the rear with a questionable fake exhaust effect. It definitely makes the Tiguan look more premium, and you get 19-inch alloy wheels, too.

Interior

The two biggest differences are the digital driver’s display and panoramic sunroof that both come as standard. There are decorative inserts in the dash and sports comfort seats in the front. To liven things up, you also get 30 different colours to choose for your ambient lighting.

R-Line

carwow price from £33,855

Exterior

Whereas the other trim levels look rather basic, the R-Line truly transforms the Tiguan into a swanky SUV. The front bumper is revised to look more sporty and aggressive. Annoyingly you still get fake chrome exhaust tips at the back, but the 20-inch alloys wheels look great and more than make up for it.

Interior

The dark headlining definitely makes the cabin feel sportier, but also a lot darker. The sports comfort seats with their chequered pattern look great and definitely make the cabin feel sportier. The sporty theme continues with carbon effect detailing on the dash and doors, and on the door sills, chrome plating with the R-Line logo.
