The Volkswagen Tiguan Adventure has been announced this week, bringing a range of off-road inspired enhancements inside and out for those who more regularly venture off the beaten track.

Based on the mid-spec 132TSI Comfortline and 110TDI Comfortline variants, the Tiguan Adventure starts at $43,990 plus on-road costs with the petrol engine and $45,490 for the diesel - representing a $2500 premium over each.

Headlining equipment upgrades include a new 'off-road' front bumper that improves the approach angle to 24-degrees, underbody protection, LED headlights, larger 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless access, an electric tailgate, Volkswagen Genuine Accessory roof bars, and power folding door mirrors.

Inside, buyers of the Tiguan Adventure are also treated to 14-way adjustable 'ErgoActive' driver's seat with electric lumbar support and massage function, 'Art Velours' microfleece seat trim, and heated front seats.

Other unique touches include 'Adventure' badging, 'off road' aluminium front door sill inlays, and the availability of Atlantic Blue metallic (pictured) - though the latter is a $700 option.

Volkswagen will also offer the Tiguan Adventure in Pure White, Tungsten Silver (metallic), Indium Grey (metallic) and Deep Black (pearlescent), which the company says are the four most popular colours for its medium SUV in Australia.

Finally, the Driver Assistance Package ($2000) is optionally available - adding auto park assist, the 12.3-inch 'Active Info' driver's display, adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera system and lane assist - as is a panoramic sunroof ($2000).

The Volkswagen Tiguan Adventure is available to order now.
