Track & Avenue model will top the Tiguan range - but not in the UK
15 December 2009

Volkswagen has launched a new top-of-the-range version of its Tiguan compact SUV – but it won’t be coming to the UK.

The Tiguan Track & Avenue will be available only in European markets and has been created by VW’s custom styling arm, Volkswagen Individual.

VW won’t be offering the model in the UK as most of the Track & Avenue’s features can be ordered from the options list of its current Tiguan range-topper, the R Line.

Exterior styling changes on the Track & Avenue include 19-inch alloy wheels, flared wheel arches, a new diffuser, new front fog lights, bi-xenon headlights and a choice of two exclusive colours: Oryx White Pearl Effect and Island Grey Pearl Effect.

Inside, the Track & Avenue gets leather upholstery, sports seats, a leather-trimmed multi-function steering wheel and an upgraded stereo system.

Under the bonnet, VW’s 197bhp 2.0 TSI engine is available with a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox, while the 2.0 TDI is available with either 138bhp or 168bhp. The lower-powered diesel is auto only, while the more powerful model gets a manual.

The Track & Avenue costs from 38,225 euros (£34,500).

Our Verdict

Volkswagen Tiguan

Does the Volkswagen Tiguan blend a hint of SUV bad-weather confidence with decent on-road dynamics?

It's basically an Escape with the R Line kit and leather trim. No one seems to want the Escape (Track & Field) in the UK so no wonder VW doesn't want to bring it over here.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
