The $42,990 Volkswagen Tiguan 110TDI Comfortline is the entry-level diesel in the Tiguan range, with the cheaper Trendline trim paired only with petrol engines. It sits below the 140TDI Highline in the diesel-powered line up.
The 110TDI is powered by a 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine that generates 110kW and 340Nm, and that will sip a claimed/combined 5.9 litres per hundred kilometres. It's paired with a seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox and arrives with VW's 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system as standard.
The 110TDI Comfortline gets an Apple CarPlay/Android Auto-equipped eight-inch multimedia screen and 17-inch alloys, along with automatic headlights and wipers, cruise control and LED tail-lights. You'll also get three-zone climate control, sat-nav and some chrome in the cabin.
Your standard safety kit will include AEB, Lane Assist, fatigue detection, a rear-view camera and semi—autonomous parking. And you can add to that seven airbags (two in the front, two on the side for front-row passengers, two curtain airbags and a knee airbag for the driver) and a maximum five-star ANCAP Safety rating.
