SEL Reversing Camera

Post by iEh » Wed Dec 04, 2019 9:41 pm

Hi, just collected my SEL all space today. I may have got it wrong but I am sure the original spec on the old VW website said reversing camera. But I haven't got one.

Is it the car that's wrong or me?

It's confusing the way the way they word it in the brochure, but to my understanding, the Match Allspace gets reversing camera and a few other bits.

The SEL gets panoramic sunroof and electric tailgate plus (The most obvious and why I opted for SEL Allspace) Led headlights.

Well the UK 1st November Price & Spec list shows it being provided on the Match and SEL trim, but replaced on the R-line Tech with the Area View camera!

If you have one, it should display an image on the central screen when you engage reverse gear. If it doesn't... and your dealer is in the UK... time to ask him where it is!

It doesn't. It's an option on the SEL Allspace.

It’s part of park assist on the SEL, at least it was when we ordered ours.

It was an option in 2018 for a 2019 MY on a sel, which is a bit tight of VW to say the least, i went for the expensive area view, its good.

Which issue of the price list are you reading? It's certainly not an option now, and I can't remember seeing it shown as one.

I am pretty sure on MY19 cars, both Allspace and SWB models, the camera was an option for the SEL.

The Match got the reversing camera and R-Line Tech got Area View (cameras front, back and sides). That did seem a bit odd to me, since SEL was definitely sold as above Match in the hierarchy, but I figured it was just VW being slow to adjust the trim levels.

Area View was one of the things that made me go for the R-Line Tech. I like it a lot.

When I ordered my sel Tiguan Allspace didn’t notice that it didn’t have a reversing camera on it.
Then looked at standard equipment to find it’s not on the list.
My car got held up at factory for 5 weeks so said to my I’m going to cancel they offered me sel in right colour but with area view and camera as a free bee🥳

You really have to be extremely careful when ordering a VW to get exactly the specification you would like. Many of the dealers often get it wrong, and added to that there are MY changes as well which confuse things further especially if you have a wait for the car, you order a 2020MY but by the time they build it you get a 2021MY - sometimes you get more equipment, sometimes less, and what was standard becomes an option.
