Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has introduced a ‘Wild’ styling package for the Tiguan Comfortline. The pack includes aluminium sports pedals, a chrome trunk garnish, a chrome load lip protector, chrome exhaust trim, scuff plates with the Tiguan logo, and “VW Tint” window film. The Wild package retails for RM5,099.

The Wild package is a local effort to visually boost the Comfortline, the entry of the two Tiguan trim levels in Malaysia, the other being the Highline. The CKD locally assembled Tiguan Comfortline is priced at RM149,578, or RM154,677 with the Wild package. The Highline is priced at RM169,578, all on-the-road excluding insurance.

Recently, VPCM quietly rolled out an MIB infotainment system update for the Tiguan Comfortline and Highline. The Highline now has an eight-inch Discover Media system while the Comfortline gets a similarly sized Composition Media system. The latter loses out on Discover’s GPS navigation and a reverse camera. Check out our video of the slick-looking new system.

The second-generation Tiguan, launched here exactly a year ago, is powered by a 1.4 litre TSI engine with 150 PS and 250 Nm of torque available from 1,500 to 3,500 rpm. The single turbo engine is mated to a six-speed DSG wet dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The official claimed fuel consumption is 6.7 litres per 100 km (14.9 km/l) in the European cycle. 0-100 km/h in done in 8.9 seconds.

Like all current VW models (effective January 1, 2018), the Tiguan comes with a free three-year (or 45,000 km) maintenance programme along with a five-year factory warranty and five-year roadside assistance. Head over to CarBase.my for full specs and details.
