Review and Test Drive: 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL Premium R-Line

First introduced in 2007, the second generation Volkswagen Tiguan, a compact crossover, was unveiled at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in 2015 and the U.S. version was shown at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in 2017, with sales starting approximately six months later.

Volkswagen only markets the long-wheelbase model in the States, a crossover with a serious amount of roominess and space.

A Pure White metallic Tiguan with the R-Line Package made an impressive entrance at our offices on a hot summer’s day, with its R-Line badging, R-Line front and rear bumpers, and special wheels.


The R-Line Tiguan welcomes driver and passenger with an R-Line specific welcome screen on the central display, an R-Line badge on the leather steering wheel, stainless-steel pedals, a black headliner, and tasteful stainless-steel doorsills with R-Line logo.

The interior is modern and tasteful. Volkswagen includes leather upholstery, a modern all-digital instrument panel, a Fender audio system, and a panoramic moonroof with this variant.

The impressive Volkswagen Digital Cockpit can store four driver profiles and offers a rather magnificent full-screen navigation view, although it doesn’t display navigation information from Apple CarPlay.
