The Tiguan the second generation to complain about the lack of demand, but the Germans continue to expand the model range. A fresh proposal for Thrifty and prudent — AWD Tiguan 1.4 supercharged 150‑HP gasoline engine. The basic equipment Trendline it works with a 6-speed mechanics, and rich in versions Comfortline and Highline — with a 6-speed DSG.

Motor 1.4 TSI EA211 index nine times received the prestigious European award “engine of the year”, but Tiguan with him — that bottle of wine. Drink from the famous winery medals on the label a lot, but still — until uncorked, will not taste. Not enough 150 “mares”?

The Tiguan rides! Well, not so fast as the 2.0-liter 180‑horsepower, but still. And even ecoregio willingly responds to pressing the gas pedal. Hardened racers such dynamics will be a stranger, but the man who is not in a hurry, its more than enough. In sportbike reactions expected to worsen, and the preselection DSG, as an experienced sommelier, in time to offer the desired transmission, so the drive turned out delicious.

The symbiosis engine, robot and all-wheel drive with four presets harmonious. On passport data, in the extra-urban cycle the machine requires a 5,6 liter of 95‑octane per hundred kilometers.The symbiosis engine, robot and all-wheel drive with four presets harmonious.

Motor is almost inaudible. A few decibels removed new engine mounts that reduce vibration. And the suspension is stiff, so all the details of asphalt felt. On the road with longitudinal ruts stronger grip the steering wheel, because the Tiguan is starting to get nervous. Quite decent vibration and the dirt that have not “combed” grader. But with large potholes the car copes well.

Haldex coupling the fifth generation works with preload and instantly connects the rear wheels as soon as the electronics feels slippery under the “feet”.

In off-road mode “snow” I easily drove along a forest road, not yet dried after the rain although the tread road tires quickly blurry.

The finish? This 150‑strong Tiguan was not a revelation. The aroma of a good German car not disappeared, but the fuel appetite is striking: in mixed mode (city, highway plus a bit of primer) consumption was 7.5 liters per hundred. Efficiency and write in the main advantages downsizing Tiguan.

The price of a 150‑strong crossover starts at 1 659 000 rubles. Quite tasty, and judging by demand, it already tasted buyers.
