Paying farewell to my Tiguan and this forum

Post by SlimPollack » Sun Mar 28, 2021 5:53 pm

Hi all,

Just wanted to say goodbye as my second Tiguan goes back to VWFS on Thursday.

I have put some items from Tig in for sale section (winter wheels, OEM dog guard and boot liner) so please have a look if you are after something like this.

Now I went electric ;) but still loyal to the brand. My new car will be VW ID.3 Family Pro Performance with some extras (metallic Makena Turquoise paint, 19" alloys and heat pump).

I guess will pop in from time to see what's going on here...
I always liked my Tiguans (well SE Nav less because of less extras ;) ) and haven't had any technical problems with them.
Enjoy your cars guys in safety.

hi , I thought Tiguan to ID 4? the ID4 is to replace the Tiguan in 2029.

I guess you needed less space more Golf sized. I tow so its impossible for me to change to a small car. I hope you like it.


I prefer the Kona though as it keep much of the old driving features < dash etc and although i am a minimalist its a step to far for me at the moment. I like manual climate controls. :D

enjoy yourself.

Well, ID4 is already on sale so not sure why you stated 2029 :?

Initially I thought the same way like you, i.e. the natural conversion would be Tiguan -> ID.4 as ID.4 is sort of SUV style.

However there are some 'buts' :D
1. Tiguan has always been a Golf in a SUV posture,
2. Due to dedicated EV MEB platform ID.3 wheelbase is 2770 mm and surprisingly (or not) Tiguan has only 2681mm which means Tig is smaller inside (proven: there is huge amount of space for your legs at the back of ID.3),
3. I got really good lease deal on ID.3 where there is no decent deals on ID.4 at all,
4. ID.3 is quicker than heavy ID.4 ;) with the same electric motor (204 BHP),
5. ID.4 is only (as of now) available in 1st Edition that is fixed trim with almost no extras to personalise. I don't like grey/brown seats on this version too. However German VW site has all future trims shown and there are some interesting ones.

I may only miss the boot size but I can always buy / lease ID.4 in the future :D

Anyway below is the real photo of the new car
