The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace Adventure

Exclusive to the Australian market, the Adventure variant of the Tiguan Allspace includes a 162kW/350Nm turbo four-cylinder engine, 17-inch alloy wheels, sports suspension and extra underbody protection.

Volkswagen Australia says that the Tiguan Allspace Adventure “delivers unique appeal to Volkswagen customers by perfectly combining performance with practicality”.

Additional no-cost options include snow chains, rear sunblinds or a luggage compartment tray alongside all-weather floor mats.

The new Volkswagen Tiguan R Grid Edition

Volkswagen Tiguan Monochrome

The Monochrome edition of the Volkswagen Tiguan is described by the manufacturer as a variant focusing on a “moody, brooding style”.

Underneath, the Tiguan Monochrome edition is essentially a 162TSI R-Line, but has unique 19-inch Valencia alloy wheels finished in gloss black, dark tinted rear windows and a black package that includes roof rails, upper grille, lower rear bumper, mirror caps and rear spoiler window trims all finished in black.

A smaller 8.0-inch ‘Discover’ infotainment screen will replace the 9.2-inch screen from the 162TSI, while leather upholstery has been replaced with cloth items. Front seat and steering wheel heating have been removed, as have the high-grade LED headlights.

The Tiguan will have three new additions to its lineup in 2023

Volkswagen says that the Monochrome packages for Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace “allow us to tailor packages that avoid lengthy wait times caused by semiconductor shortages, in a valuable special edition format for customers”.

The Monochrome editions can be ordered now, with first deliveries taking place in January 2023.

Volkswagen Tiguan R Grid Edition

The Tiguan R in Grid Edition specification undercuts a regular Tiguan R by $5000, making the cost of entry more attainable for a wider range of buyers. The Grid Edition will cost $63,990 before on-road costs.

The Tiguan R gains black exterior styling and microfleece/cloth seats

Volkswagen has replaced the IQ LED headlights from the regular Tiguan R with Performance LED items. Inside the Grid Edition, VW has swapped the leather Nappa upholstery with R Sport cloth and microfleece.

Performance is unchanged, the Tiguan R still boasting 235kW/400Nm from its 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The performance Tiguan can currently sprint to 100km/h from rest in 5.1 seconds.

A Volkswagen Golf R Grid edition will not be released in Australia.
