A sign of just how significant the Russian market is for Volkswagen is demonstrated by the Tiguan; effectively immediately, this younger brother to the Touareg will also be manufactured at the new Kaluga plant near Moscow. The Jetta and the Passat are already being produced there. And indeed with the same precision and quality typical of Volkswagen. In Russia, the Tiguan is being offered in the versions “Sport & Style” and “Track & Field” (off-road version with larger front approach angle). A 110 kW / 150 PS strong 1.4 TSI is being offered on the entry-level versions of both variants. Its top speed of 192 km/h contrasts with a very low average fuel consumption of 8.4 liters fuel per 100 kilometers. The top model, the Tiguan 2.0 TSI (125 kW / 170 PS), is 200 km/h fast. Nonetheless, its average fuel consumption of 9.1 liters is also pleasantly low.
For the first time in Russia, Volkswagen is also presenting the new CC – the third variant of the Passat series that has enjoyed success across the globe. Background: with more than 15 million cars built, the Passat and the Passat Variant rank among the really big successes in automotive history. Now Volkswagen is extending the model range of this car line by adding a third dimension: the Passat CC. Its fully independent body design, an interior that has sporty individually sculpted seats in the rear too, impressive powertrain systems and technological highlights worthy of the luxury class, meld together to create a vehicle that continues to be unique in the Passat’s market segment. The Passat CC is an elegant sedan and a dynamic coupé simultaneously. The concept and design of this Volkswagen are defining fresh, new directions beyond the mainstream.
