In October 2016, foreign editions first published “spy” photos of a high-performance crossover VW Tiguan R. Since then, the German brand has presented the “charged” crossover T – Roc R, but I guess we’ll have to wait a bit for his older brother VW Tiguan R.
It is reported that this time, the long-awaited German novelty was captured at nürburgring race track. We can’t help but wonder how much power VW will provide a “charged” Tiguan R, given that the aforementioned subcompact crossover T-Roc R already has 300 “horses”.
The idea is that the amount of power should be more, because in the lineup, the Tiguan is above the T-Roc. “Juicy” rumors about a high-performance hatchback, the Golf R Plus to the power of 400 HP, they say that the 2.0 TSI has serious potential.
VW admitted that it is working on a 3.0-liter engine VR6 turbo for the flagship sedan Arteon R, where capacity will be just over 400 HP, but there is no information on whether this engine a chance to get into the engine Bay of the upcoming Tiguan R. We think not. Now, this 2.5-liter engine, is mounted in the crossover Teramont where its power output is 295 BHP (499 Nm). This version of the model sold in China.
Back to Tiguan R, expect the standard bundles “robot” DSG and all-wheel drive system 4Motion. “Mechanics” is unlikely to be offered. The novelty will receive more powerful brake system and a stiffer suspension for improved handling.
