In 2006, at the time of the first generation, Volkswagen Tiguan, and nothing extraordinary was required. German crossover thanks to its origin, price and quality were much more capable than the notorious reptile. Building purchasers in turn, in a few years, he has taken a share, which is the traditional Boas and is not wanted.
But the model PQ45 platform was much more boring than many, despite the talking versions to suit the needs of the buyer. Bevels bumpers, different configuration, special kits, and even various settings for all-wheel drive, if available, however, and front it all seemed like a marketing ploy.
Kolesa.ru told, but Sportline, which appeared at the end of November 2017, perhaps, turned all traditional notions of conservatism Wolfsburg products.
The man in the street parked stern to the wall, the crossover will give rise not one minute to guess what the model put before him eminent concern: the new offspring or tuning Studio? The stereotypes of the Tiguan will make it possible to immediately and unambiguously answer the question.
Large 19-inch wheels dark titanium, chrome moldings in a circle, not a single black plastic lining in the design of a massive body… It’s definitely not a SUV, took the second place in class in sales in our country over the last year. When it comes to facade, the potential buyer will get confused definitively.
By the way, if we are talking about the economy, this time on the part of the buyer, when you purchase a “Sportline” with a 180-horsepower version of the EA888 you can save 70 thousand rubles, and with a 150-strong turbodiesel — as many as 180 thousand.
Crossovery component is felt only in the ride height. In the rest of the “Top-cross” resembles a badly loaded hatch. First of all, at a minimal buildup of the body, accuracy and “efficiency” of taxiing and, of course, the possibilities of control of power and torque.
Oddly enough, if you examine the price list with the list of standard equipment and special stages, almost all that is necessary the Highline version, which includes a maximum of security systems and electronics, and have the Sportline, the only effect of the perception of these cars are totally different.
However, intra-model competition is unlikely to rise: in our country, any dirt and dust Tiguan, a priori, will be attended with great warmth. But for fans EN-route voyages Sportline is a gift, albeit expensive.
