What should I be paying?
Volkswagen claims 28.2mpg and 226g/km of CO2 on the combined WLTP cycle. And VW’s claims are true (‘for once!’ we hear you chortling at the back), for circa-30mpg is what you’ll get if you broadly drive your Tiguan R sensibly but take it on the odd, frenzied detour of a favourite road once the kids are dropped off and you’re all on your tod. Attempt such antics more often and the figure will soon plummet into the mid 20s.
It’s priced confidently: a whisker under £46,000 on the road before options. The Lapiz Blue paint you see here – an R signature – is actually a £770 extra. A non-metallic white is the only standard colour.
A year’s breakdown cover comes as part of the package, as does a three-year/60,000-mile warranty.
