V Ws all-wheel drive fit and fits into the times - Mainstream optics that even conservative customers do not want to worry about, compact dimensions and a spacious interior. In addition, the typical presentation in the style of the house, with which even a switch from Golf or Passat will not be frightened. The latter is certainly also part of the success that has made the Tiguan number one on the SUV sales list almost without interruption since the start of sales. Because not a few regular customers choose the brand's new off-roader instead of the Golf Plus or Touran.

Seikel makes the VW Tiguan 2.0 TDI fit for off-road

As early as 2008, we looked into the question of whether the Tiguan could actually pass as a small Touareg and pass the super test. The VW Tiguan 2.0 TDI with manual transmission tested at the time, however, broke the bar and failed. The test result at the time was the result of the test that the standard Tiguan is well suited for snow-covered mountain paths or pulling trailers. But you shouldn't expect much more from him. It goes without saying that this fact does not allow a man like Peter Seikel to sleep peacefully: The VW specialist from the Hessian town of Freigericht has been modifying Wolfsburg all-wheel drive vehicles for decades and making them fit for the terrain. It was clear that the Tiguan could not go unprocessed. All the more exciting for us to send the Seikel Tiguan through the super test and to take a particularly close look wherever the production car had problems.

Effective conversions on the VW Tiguan by Seikel

The conversions that Seikel makes on the Tiguan are not very radical, but effective: lift-up chassis, higher M /T tires on steel rims and extensive underbody protection measures - nothing more. The motor, electronics and drive system remain unaffected. Small but subtle difference: the Seikel-Tiguan competed with a six-speed automatic transmission. Important to compensate for the lack of gear reduction, because the classic automatic converter allows more careful driving and climbing. An option that unfortunately disappeared from the price list for model year 2011, since then the automatic Tiguan has only been available with the 7-speed double clutch transmission.
