The Volkswagen Tiguan Black is a special edition of the German brand’s popular compact SUV.
Unfortunately, the car stopped being marketed in Brazil in 2021. However, VW has already positioned itself that the car will return to the Brazilian market, but still no scheduled date.
The Tiguan Black, as the name suggests, is completely black, with a look that’s both sporty and elegant. In addition to the external appearance, the Tiguan Black has several other features that make it an interesting option for those looking for a versatile and comfortable car.
After some tests done by automotive journalists, the car has been gaining good ratings and shows itself as an excellent competitor to the Jeep Commander.
The Tiguan Black’s exterior is dominated by black, which extends from the roof to the wheels. The car is aggressively styled, with a glossy black front grille and LED headlights. The 19-inch alloy wheels are exclusive to the Black edition and are finished in gloss black, as are the mirror caps.
Furthermore, the Tiguan Black comes with a panoramic roof that allows plenty of natural light into the interior of the car. At the rear, the SUV has LED taillights with the brand’s signature, and a rear diffuser that complements the car’s aggressive style.
The interior of the Tiguan Black is finished in glossy black and Vienna leather, which add a touch of elegance to the car. The glossy black finish is found on the instrument panel accents, center screen bezel and air conditioning controls. Vienna leather is present on the seats, steering wheel and gear lever.
The SUV has plenty of space for passengers and offers a lot of comfort. The driver’s seat is electrically adjustable to 12 positions, while the front passenger seat is electrically adjustable to eight positions. The rear seats fold down, allowing the Tiguan Black to be used to carry larger loads.
The Tiguan Black’s infotainment system is one of the best in its class. The 8-inch center touchscreen is intuitive and easy to use, and comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto built-in. The car also has a Fender branded premium sound system which provides excellent audio quality.
The Tiguan Black comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine that produces 186 horsepower and 32.6 kgfm of torque. The engine is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission, which offers smooth and precise shifts.
The SUV has excellent performance and handling, with smooth acceleration and strong braking. The 4Motion all-wheel drive ensures good grip on wet or snowy roads.
The Tiguan Black comes with a number of safety features including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist and blind spot monitoring. The car also has front, side and curtain airbags, as well as a tire pressure monitoring system.
The Volkswagen Tiguan Black is an interesting option for those looking for a compact SUV with a sporty and elegant style. In addition to the external appearance, the car offers excellent comfort and performance.
The suggested value suggested at launch in Australia, the car would cost U$ 33k in its entry-level version and U$ 36k in the top-of-the-line version.
