The Volkswagen Tiguan 2019 range has seen the addition of the highly specified, limited-edition Wolfsburg model.
Sitting at the top of the model tree and limited to just 500 units, the Wolfsburg builds upon the standard specification of the 162TSI Highline that sits below it - running the same 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine with 162kW/350Nm, a seven-speed dual-clutch auto transmission and '4Motion' all-wheel drive.
The Wolfsburg Edition costs $55,490 (plus on-road costs) and adds plenty of additional desirable equipment.

The Wolfsburg adds the high-tech Sound & Vision Package (with the digital instrument cluster that VW calls Active Info Display, a surround-view camera, Dynaudio sound system with nine speakers and a subwoofer, and ambient interior lighting), the R-Line Package (R-Line body styling and interior trim, 20-inch alloy wheels in black, and VW’s ‘progressive steering’ system), plus further black exterior trim elements, dark window tint, and a head-up display. There’s a Wolfsburg badge at the back, and the choice of Oryx White Pearlescent, Deep Black Pearl or Indium Grey Metallic for your paint colours.
Further standard gear includes LED tail-lights, leather seats, heated front seats with electric adjustment and memory settings, heated outboard rear seats, a 9.2-inch media touchscreen with sat nav and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, ambient interior lighting, the convenience of auto high-beam lighting with anti-dazzle function (Dynamic Light Assist), adaptive cruise control and adaptive chassis control.
Safety equipment includes a reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, auto emergency braking (AEB), manoeuvre braking (where the car can brake if the rear sensors detect an obstacle), self parking (parallel and perpendicular bay park assist), driver fatigue detection, lane departure warning and lane-keeping assistance (the car will steer you into your lane if it needs to), and multi-collision brake (a system that applies the brakes if you have an accident, lessening the chance of further damage).
There’s also lane-changing assistant, a system called 'Emergency Assist' that can stop the car if the driver is unresponsive, and rear cross-traffic alert.
