2016 Volkswagen Tiguan.

Three-tier, five-engine Tiguan lineup to span $31,990-$49,990 when it arrives Australian showrooms in September.

Volkswagen will price its seven-strong range of new Tiguan SUVs from $31,990 (before on-road costs) for the entry level front-wheel-drive Comfortline 110 TSI manual, and from $34,490 for the same car with a seven-speed double-clutch auto.

With the all-new Tiguan moving from the small into the ultra-competitive medium SUV category for the second-generation car, its entry-level pricing structure slots it in above vehicles like Ford's Kuga Ambiente and the Hyundai Tucson Active which start at $27,990, as well as the Mazda CX-5 Maxx ($27,190) and Nissan's X-Trail ($27,990).

The median 132TSI petrol-powered Comfortline, meanwhile, will be priced at $41,490, and will offer all-wheel-drive and DSG as standard fare.

VW says that all Tiguans will offer front assist with AEB, lane assist, driver fatigue detection, an active bonnet, multi-collision brake, park assist and rear view camera as standard fare, along with auto wipers, 8.0-inch screen-based multimedia systems and LED taillights.

VW revealed the specifications of the Tiguan last month, with the range topping out at $49,990 for the seven-speed DSG-equipped 140TDI Highline.

Set to launch in September, the entry-level front-wheel-drive Trendline can be had with either six-speed manual or, for an extra $2500, a seven-speed DSG, teamed to a 1.4-litre 110kW turbocharged petrol four-potter.

All Tiguans from the three-car Comfortline through to the two-model Highline are AWD and DSG only, with diesels available in 100kW Comfortline and 132kW Highline grades.

The diesels add $1500 to the cost over the 132kW petrol version of the same car, or $6000 on top of the equivalent 110kW petrol model.

The Comfortline can also be upspecced wit the addition of a $5000 Luxury Package, which includes leather-appointed seats, electronically adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, power folding door mirrors, keyless access, electronically-operated tailgate with an easy-open function and a electric glass sunroof.

Comfortline and Highline grades can be upgraded with adaptive cruise control, side assist with rear traffic alert, active info display, power folding door mirrors and a 360-degree surround camera for an additional $2000.

The R-Line kit adds a bespoke R-Line body kit, R-Line interior and 20-inch alloys, along with the same adaptive chassis control and progressive steering systems seen in the Golf GTI, for $4000.

Our first drive of the Tiguan, which sits atop the same MGB platform that underpins the VW Golf, revealed a composed, refined machine that is, crucially, larger in key areas including rear storage.
