Bling bling... the Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line is the flashiest in the range. As such it has: bi- xenon headlights, eighteen-inch silver coloured alloys, black wheel arch extensions, and model specific bumpers. These complement the “R-Line logo” that makes its presence felt on the grill, head restraints, and steering wheel. But that is not enough for this fashion statement. It has stainless steel peddles too, and a spoiler, and sports seats with a two- tone finish. The R-Line also inherits features from the SE on which it is based. Highlights include the electronic stability programme for safer cornering, climate control for comfort, Bluetooth for convenience, and rear parking sensors to protect its flash bumper. How bling.

The Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line is available with three engines. These are the: 2.0-litre 210PS petrol, plus the 2.0-litre TDI 140PS/170PS diesels. These propel power to all four wheels via silky smooth six-speed manual transmission. There is no automatic option, even though this would have been flash. Furthermore, these variants hit 62mph in 7.8, 10.2, and 8.9 seconds respectively – and average 33.2, 48.7, and 47.1mpg. All these figures earn more respect than a diamond bracelet. Throw-in rock solid handling and excellent build quality and it becomes that the Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line is a shining paragon of virtue. Prices range from £28,020 to £28,700. Lots of cash, but lots of bling too.
