Volkswagen Australia has increased the pricing of its Tiguan SUV by up to $840.
All 110TSI and 132TSI variants are now $340 dearer, while their 162TSI counterparts have copped the full price rise.
As such, the Mazda CX-5-rivalling Tiguan range now kicks off at $34,490 plus on-road costs for the five-seat 110TSI Trendline, rising to $52,490 for the seven-seat Allspace 162TSI Highline (see full pricing table below).
No changes have been made to standard specification, with a Volkswagen Australia spokesperson telling CarsGuide the pricing adjustments were made due to exchange-rate pressures.
As before, 110TSI variants are motivated by a 110kW/250Nm 1.4-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, which is mated to a six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission that exclusively sends drive to the front wheels.
132TSI variants upgrade to a 132kW/320Nm 2.0-litre unit that teams a seven-speed DSG with Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system, while their 162TSI counterparts increase this combination’s outputs to 162kW/350Nm.
Buyers are offered two seating options, with the standard-wheelbase Tiguan providing room for five occupants, while its long-wheelbase Allspace counterpart has an extra pair of pews (and additional boot space).
