As the current Tiguan is set to be retired by Volkswagen, the mini SUV will look to blend the R-Line’s performance-led looks but with a sprinkling of extra options. 


On the outside, the large grille and extended front bumper are almost identical to those seen on the R-Line, but as expected, are coated in darker colours to signify its trim grade. 


20-inch black alloys are also fitted to further enhance its sporty looks, while a deep metallic paint, a panoramic sunroof and LED headlamps complete the main upgrades to the exterior.


In the cabin, the Black Edition will gain a bigger 9.2-inch infotainment screen and a completely digital instrument panel - all of which will be predominantly controlled via Volkswagen’s Discover Media navigation set. 


Other notable interior comforts include heated front seats, adaptive cruise control and DAB radio, in addition to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 


Five powertrain choices are available, with a 1.5-litre petrol acting as the entry-level version. A 2.0-litre diesel is also positioned beside it, with both producing 148bhp. 


Completing the set is a triumvirate of 4MOTION four-wheel drive powertrains, and all three will hold a capacity of 2.0-litres. They will offer either 148bhp diesel, 187bhp petrol or 197bhp diesel engines. 


Regardless of the drivetrain chosen, the Tiguan Black Edition will utilize Volkswagen’s seven-speed DSG gearbox. 


The Tiguan Black Edition is available for pre-order now, with prices starting at £37,325.
