New top-end diesel, gasoline engines for VW Tiguan in Europe

In Europe, the new Volkswagen Tiguan can now be ordered with two new top engines: the new 2.0 TDI biturbo diesel with 176 KW / 240 PS; and the 2.0 TSI engine with output of 162 kW / 220 PS familiar from the Golf GTI. Both engines come with 4Motion all-wheel drive and a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) as standard.

With the new biturbo, a four-cylinder turbodiesel direct-injection engine, Volkswagen offers the most powerful diesel in the segment. The way the Tiguan 2.0 TDI delivers its power is not only dynamic, but also efficient.

For the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h the Tiguan biturbo needs no more than 6.5 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 228 km/h (142 mph); maximum torque is 500 N·m, available between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm.

The top TDI consumes an average of just 6.4 l/100 km (37 mpg US), with corresponding CO2 emissions of 167 g/km.

The 2.0 TSI gasoline engine with 162 kW / 220 PS also promises increased dynamic performance. With this engine the Tiguan accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph). The maximum torque of 350 N·m is available between 1,500 and 4,000 rpm.
