New Tiguan added to Motability Scheme
The latest Tiguan is now available on the Motability scheme at Breeze Volkswagen, to people who receive the following Motability allowances:
- The Higher Rate Motability Allowance
- The Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment
- The War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement
- The Armed Forces Independence Payment
Every Tiguan, from the S trim up, features a range of driver’s assistance systems including Lane Assist, which gently steers the car to keep it within its lane, and Front Assist, which uses radar sensing linked to the throttle and brakes at speeds of up to 19 mph, to control automatically the distance between the Tiguan and the car ahead.
Speed-sensitive power-assisted steering and features such as automatic windscreen wipers and lights add to the user-friendliness of the Tiguan. In addition, the electronic handbrake is operated at the touch of a button to hold the car when it is paused on an incline.
Efficiency is a hallmark of the comprehensive Tiguan engine line-up. The 2.0-litre diesel powerplant offered via the Motability Scheme is equipped with Volkswagen’s BlueMotion Technology. This includes a Start/Stop function which means that when the car is at a standstill the engine briefly switches off. In addition, Tiguans fitted with a DSG automatic gearbox use a coasting function that allows the car to de-select a gear when travelling downhill not under acceleration before seamlessly re-engaging the appropriate ratio almost instantly when the accelerator is pressed.
An appealing aspect of the Tiguan’s interior is the eight-inch colour touchscreen that takes pride of place in the dashboard. This enables intuitive access to the variety of features that are packed into the Composition Media infotainment system, which all Tiguans are equipped with as a minimum.
Composition Media includes a Bluetooth® telephone connection that enables two compatible mobile devices to be paired simultaneously. A DAB digital radio receiver and CD player also feature, as does an SD card reader and music title and cover art display. The audio output comes via eight speakers located throughout the car.
The latest Tiguan benefits from a significantly enlarged boot when compared to the previous model. This five-door, five-seat SUV even includes an adjustable 40:20:40 split bench rear seat that can slide fore or aft by up to 18 cms, thereby maximising either rear legroom, or boot space. When the rear bench is upright and slid forward there are 615 litres of boot space. When the rear seats are folded this increases to 1,655 litres.
Safety is another area in which the Tiguan scores highly, having been awarded a full five stars from the Euro NCAP testing programme – and it topped the Small Off-Roader class in 2016. A suite of airbags, including driver’s knee and front seat side impact airbags, are factory fitted. With the Active Bonnet system, if the car is in collision with a pedestrian the bonnet is instantly raised 50 mm to potentially reduce the risk of injury. The hazard lights flash under heavy braking and all Tiguans are equipped with an XDS electronic differential lock for improved traction and handling.
The Tiguan SE is also available on the Motability Scheme. In addition to all the features above, this trim level includes electronic air conditioning and cruise control, two features that further establish the Tiguan’s driver-focused appeal. The standard equipment list continues with front and rear parking sensors, a multi-function colour display and exclusive 18-inch ‘Patagonia’ wheels.
Other Volkswagen models available via the Motability scheme include the up!, Polo, Golf, Golf Estate, Beetle, Passat, Passat Estate, Scirocco, Touran and Sharan.
