It also gets new dynamic hubcaps for the wheels and a new load sill protection at the rear. There’s also an Exclusive Edition badging on the B-pillar and the SUV comes in two exterior colour options – Pure White and Oryx White.
On the inside, the Tiguan Exclusive Edition gets aluminium foot pedals and more Exclusive Edition badging. There are, however, no other changes to the trim, upholstery or to the equipment list.
