    5 litre turbo? Is that a typo? If this had been available a year ago I would have considered it.

    • Azmodan

      1.5l turbo, that’s why it’s a game changer, get used to gutless being the new performance criteria.

      Nice to think you could get a 5l turbo for $27K, I’d buy it for the engine and scrap the car.

      • Monty

        Interesting. I read other reports that at 180 kw engine would be available. The poor visibility puts me off. The Tiguan is like a goldfish bowl compared to most cars I’ve driven in the last few years.

        • Kampfer

          LT spec and above have the 188kw 2.0L engine.

  • Monty

    I’m told by an industry person that you can buy a 6 litre Holden V8 for $10,000. Sadly it won’t fit in my Tiguan.
