Volkswagen has revealed a special edition of the Tiguan called the Track and Avenue. The car is designed for customers demanding more luxury.
Changes on the inside (The most important ones since this car is designed to be luxurious) include sports seats lined in an ultra-soft leather, which is also used on the door inserts. Then there’s Volkswagen’s RCD 150 audio system with a six-inch screen, hooked up to Dynaudio speakers. Lastly, they’ve added climate control and a leather wrapped multifunction steering wheel.
On the exterior, you get a 25-degree off-road front end with off-road styling. It’s not all show and no go though, as this front end doesn’t just look like it’s meant to go off-road, it is indeed designed to be good when attacking the rough stuff. I have a sneaking suspicion the rest of the car isn’t though. It also gets Bi-Xenon headlights and fog lamps, a silver diffuser and 19-inch alloy wheels. Two colours are offered: Oryx White Pearl Effect or Island Grey Pearl Effect (Which is the colour used in the pictures, even though it looks more green than grey on the pictures).
VW will offer a few drivetrain options with the car: A 135-hp 2.0L diesel hooked up to an automatic transmission, a 165hp 2.0L diesel with a six-speed manual, or a 190hp 2.0L gasoline engine with either an automatic or manual transmission.
Pricing begins at about 56000 USD for the gasoline engined car with a manual transmission. Sounds like quite a lot if you ask me.
