German car manufacturer Volkswagen have revealed important range-wide updates for the 2020 model year. Customers will see new design features, additional equipment and overall better value for money as the brand wants to enhance value, style and usability.
This citycar is VW’s smallest offering and upgrades will include with the ultra-frugal 1.0 60 PS MPI engine combined with the generously equipped High up! specification.
The brands second bestselling model within the UK is the multi award winning Polo supermini. It will receive lumbar adjustment as standard on the ever-popular SE and sporty R-Line trims.
The Golf remains Volkswagen’s best seller and will offer a VW connect Dongle as standard on S and Match Edition trims. Even more exciting, the 290 PS Golf GTI TCR will come with an Akrapovic sports exhaust system as standard too.
This well received SUV model will get a new engine in a 1.6-litre, 115 PS TDI unit. On the S and Match trim levels a set of LED headlights will become optional and it’s thought they will enhance the front end of the vehicle when compared to the standard halogen lights. As with other S and Match trims, the Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace will be provided with a standard-fit VW Connect Dongle.
VW’s minivan will benefit from a host of addition equipment, such as Discover Navigation as standard across all trim levels, plus a blind spot monitor with rear traffic alert including lane assist, and dynamic road sign display. With the Discover Navigation upgrade, the car markers have decided to remove the SE trim option, leaving the S, SE Nav and SEL.
The Touran model is the smaller of the two minivans, this will get two new alloy wheel designs and the SE and SE trims will gain a VW Connect Dongle as standard. Interestingly, a DSG-equipped 2.0-litre, 115 PS TDI engine will also become available.
The luxurious Elegance trim and the sportier R-Line will receive Discover Navigation Pro as standard equipment and a SE trim will be introduced as an entry level alternative. The original fastback infotainment systems will be upgraded to the latest MIB Generation 3, as well as the second-generation Active Info Display and wireless App Connect. These features are also seen on the just-launched Passat.
The brands pricier SUV will gain the new Park Assist Professional system, which combines Area View with Park Assist for the easiest assisted parking experience anywhere in the Volkswagen range. All trim levels will be eligible for the optional air suspension with automatic self-levelling suspension, height adjustment and electronic shock absorption control.
