INTERIOR: 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan. In the new Tiguan Volkswagen is implementing the latest generation of infotainment, based on the MIB. It starts with the base radio, the Composition Touch, which comes in the Trendline trim level. Other optional systems are Radio Composition Colour with a 5-inch colour touchscreen and Composition Media with an 8-inch colour touchscreen. The Discover Media and Discover Pro navigation units offer excellent visibility thanks to their 8-inch displays and come with the Guide & Inform online services as standard. To activate them, all the user needs to do is register with Car-Net using a SIM card via the CarStick, or wi-fi hot spot of the smartphone or business phone. All services can be used free-of-charge for the first year.
Delivering an ideal sound experience in the new Tiguan is the optional 400-watt DYNAUDIO Excite Surround system with a digital 10-channel amplifier, subwoofer and centre speaker integrated in the cockpit. The low-resonance loudspeakers were meticulously tuned to the new Tiguan for perfect surround sound.
The optional package of Media Control and App-Connect provide a connection to consumer electronic devices in the new Tiguan. Examples of this system’s many different capabilities include Media Control which can be used by the front seat passenger, or even by a passenger on the rear bench, to conveniently input a navigation route from a tablet to the infotainment system or to update the play list. And with App Connect, nearly any smartphone can be fully integrated in the new Tiguan via Apple CarPlay, Android Auto or MirrorLink. Everyone is also “always on” in Offroad mode. The risk of distraction from driving is reduced by use of the USB port on the centre console to mirror the smartphone display onto the vehicle’s display. The driver could even use the MirrorLink app Cam Connect to have images shown on the display of the radio or navigation system sourced from a GoPro camera mounted in a horse trailer being towed by the new Tiguan.
The convenience package for online and media functions is rounded off with an inductive charging tray for smartphones based on the global Qi standard that is being installed by Volkswagen for the first time and by the new service Car-Net Security & Service. These services let drivers optimise safety and access key information about their vehicle. Available features range from a speed alarm to telemetric calls for roadside assistance and vehicle tracking.
