Wheels (Australia) - - 2017 Car Of The Year -

There is no ob­vi­ous weak­ness in the Tiguan’s suite of re­fined,d, hy­per-ef­fi­cient turbo four-pots. There are five to choose ose from – three petrols and two diesels – start­ing withh a pleas­antly sweet 110kw/250nm 1.4-litre turbo four-pot in the 110TSI. It’s the only en­gine of­fer­ing a slick ck six-speed man­ual ’ box; oth­ers are mated to a six- or r seven-speed dual-clutch. Two tunes tune­ses of VW’S EA888 2.0-litre unit fol­low: the 132kw/320nmnm unit in the 132TSI 32TSI and a Gti-spec 162kw/350nm ver­sion in the 162TSI,TSI, which wasn’t avail­able in titime time for COTY. A pair of smooth­mooth 2.0-litre diesels (110kw/340nm and 140kw/400nm) com­plete the line-up.
