First launched in Malaysia back in April 2017, the second-generation Volkswagen Tiguan is an interesting alternative to the usual SUV offerings like the Honda CR-V, Nissan X-Trail and Mazda CX-5. Customers will get to choose two variants – Comfortline and Highline – both powered by a 1.4 litre TSI engine.

The single-turbo mill serves up 150 PS and 250 Nm of torque, which is directed to the front wheels via a six-speed DSG wet dual-clutch automatic gearbox. While the base Comfortline sells for RM148,990 on the road without insurance, the range-topping Highline, which is the tester we have for this video, is priced at RM168,990.

The Highline comes equipped with LED headlamps with Dynamic Cornering Assist, 18-inch “Kingston” wheels (shod with 235/55 tyres), “Vienna” combination leather interior, three-zone climate control, a 12.3-inch Active Info Display digital instrument panel and a Discover Media eight-inch touchscreen system.

So, does the overall package impress? Well, join us as we take you on a tour of the Tiguan Highline and find out what we think of the SUV. For a more detailed look at equipment and specifications of the Tiguan range, head on over to CarBase.my.
