Injecting more Sport into Sport Utility Vehicle 

Through numerous generations, our Golf performance models have always been synonymous with the endearing term of ‘hot hatch.’ Now, with the introduction of Tiguan R, we set a new benchmark.  For the first time, Volkswagen owners can experience that same inherent level of performance, without compromising on space and practicality.
