New 2019 VW Tiguan Petrol 230ps Ordered

Post by JK-VWTiguanR » Sat Jan 19, 2019 4:41 pm

Well I have pulled the trigger and ordered us a brand new VW Tiguan Petrol 230ps.

Not much will change from our 240ps Diesel in spec apart from you no longer can have the phone charging pad and heated screen but we will get the new updated display taken from the Troc.

Now just a 14 week wait for delivery but having got one already it's not as big a painful wait as when waiting for our first Tiguan.

Even kept the same colour as the colour choice is very limited to White, Black, Grey or Silver.

I'm please for you. I'm sure it'll be lovely.

Will you miss the DCC? and would be interested to know if it's actually noticeably comfier on comfort mode. I ask this because I've recently driven an SEL on an extended run without the sport suspension and honestly thought the R-Line was just as comfy in terms of ride comfort and even the seats. That said if it's worth it I'll certainly consider it myself.

Just because it's standard on the 240 and doesn't appear to be on the 230TSI.

OH, yes standard on the 240 model but an 835.00 pounds optional extra on the 230 model and i have added this to the build.

The only difference between the car i have and the car i will get will be,
Petrol engine instead of Diesel
No phone Charger
No Heated Screen
No lights around the sunroof (Unless they add this back now there is a fix)

New updated digital dash.

Other then that the car will be 100% the same.

Have you seen on the other thread that the Swedish VW site has the 230TSI with Back pack, Fake exhausts and DCC although that may not all come here but something like DCC would be something you'd expect them to add as standard with luck.

DCC is not standard in the U.K. it’s a paid extra.

U.K. cars come with fake exhausts.

The black pack is also not available at present in the U.K.

Your find there are many different types of Tiguan around the world that are not available in other markets.

We only get a choice of white, black, silver and grey but in Germany you can get the same R-Line Tech in red, blue and a bronze colour that’s not available in the U.K..

Hmmm fake exhaust...what’s the benefit or is it a styling thing?
