2018 Volkswagen Tiguan R Spied for First Time — A prototype has been spotted in Nurburgring recently, and it is speculated to be the new Volkswagen Tiguan R variant. This is so interesting since the model is officially confirmed to come to auto market. This is the first time the prototype to be caught outside. Here is the full detail on it.
2018 Volkswagen Tiguan R Specifications
Features, Exterior, and Interior
The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan R prototype clearly has quad exhaust system already, which makes the strongest indication that it is the performance variant of the Tiguan. It also has the other R option elements including large alloy wheels, side mirrors with matte silver highlight, front grille with the same highlight too, and extended wheel arches.
The prototype doesn’t wear any camouflage, yet the interior of the VW tiguan R car is unseen so far. We need to wait to know more on what Volkswagen prepare for the inside. The surprising thing on this prototype is that it rides a little lower than the standard, and this is a good thing for its performance later. In addition to it, it has been confirmed that the new car is built on MQB platform.
Powertrain, Engine — 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan R
Until this point, there is no certainty on its possible powertrain. However, there are several speculations on the possibility. It is reported that a turbocharged six-cylinder engine is already built for the platform. In addition to it, the last standard VW Tiguan already has twin-turbocharged four-cylinder of diesel engine producing 175 kW of power output and 500 Nm of torque performance.
However, the strongest possibility for this new tiguan R powertrain falls to turbocharged 2.0 liter of EA888 TSI petrol engine. In this VW car, the engine is estimated to generate around 310 PS of power output and 400 Nm of torque performance. Most possibly, the engine will be joined with Haldex 4 Motion all-wheel drive configuration as in Golf R and seven-speed of DS automatic transmission unit.
