The Volkswagen Group is experiencing difficult and painful moments regarding the transition to the WLTP protocol. Many versions are not certified in time, which forced the German manufacturer to tear gamma. Among the many victims, Volkswagen Tiguan also found itself. However, VW finally managed to adapt to the range of aggregates for this model, so now they are all aligned with Euro 6d-TEMP norms.
The introductory petrol engine with the 1.4 TSI was retired, which opened the spot for the promotion of the new 1.5 TSI Evo drive drive, although this rocket happened much earlier with other models in the European market. The new engine is offered in versions that reject 130 or 150 horsepower, but the only option is driving wheels focused on the front axle. The transmission is solved using the seven-speed DSG unit, and only on a stronger version.
Another fuel-efficient engine with the 2.0 TSI has been upgraded, and as a consequence, it is now somewhat stronger and offers 190 instead of the 190 horsepower so far. The same engine, but with multiple horses, has a step above the previous option, and delivers 230, instead of the previous 220 horsepower. This Tiguan powered is only available with DSG transmission and all-wheel drive.
As far as diesel is concerned, there is an inevitable 2.0 TDI unit in two versions of 150 and 190 hp. The 115 hp diesel engine is simply excluded from the offer, but on the list of options, a unit of the same volume was found, which, with the assistance of two turbochargers, now offers an impressive 240 horsepower, which was enough for this engine to be found under the hood and the Czech Skoda crossover Skoda Kodiaq RS.
These motorized Tiguan specimens have already begun to arrive at European salons, and will be gradually introduced into the offer. For example, in Germany currently two versions of this crossover are currently available: 1.5 TSI and 2.0 TDI, both with 150 hp.
