Big Things, Small Packages
Sometimes bigger isn’t always better – good things CAN come in small packages after all. The old adage couldn’t be any more evident than when you think inside a Volkswagen. The newest little VW addition making big waves in the SUV world? The Volkswagen Tiguan.
Despite its small appearance, the Tiguan certainly maximizes the amount of space available with the efficiency that Volkswagen known and loved for. With front bucket seats that offer great back support and lots of leg/headroom, the only complaints you’ll hear will be from the backseat… just kidding!
The Volkswagen Tiguan’s rear seat is serviceable for three adults, and the 40-20-40 split bench configuration makes for a versatile and roomy excursion for everyone. There’s even a forward-folding front passenger seat to allow room for longer items, making your next home project even less of a hassle.
In addition to its efficient size, the gas milage for the Tiguan provides an impressive combined city/street average of 23 MPG. Its fuel efficiency is than mirrored by the Tiguan’s smooth and tight handling, boasting a 39 ft. turn radius and all wheel drive. This control and efficiency only further complements the Tiguan’s quick takeoff time, and maneuverability on the highway. Under the hood, enjoy the power of a 2.0-liter, 16-valve, turbocharged, 4-cylinder engine that results in an output of 200 horsepower, and 207 pounds feet of torque.
Like many new Volkswagen models, this vehicle comes standard with app connectivity, a rearview camera, USB charging and a SiriusXM radio trial subscription. Volkswagen also uses its all-new Car-Net App-Connect with Bluetooth, traditional and satellite radio, and a 6.3-inch touch screen for on-the-go connectivity.
The Volkswagen Tiguan definitely lives up to its small but powerfully efficient standards, providing numerous features and great performance.
Fun Volkswagen Fact: The Tiguan is actually named after a mythical creature that is a combination of tiger, and iguana. Why? Volkswagen thought it to be a great reflection of the make of the vehicle itself. With some parts coming from Hungary, others from the US or Canada, and a majority of the parts and assembly done in Germany, its wide body build provided a great reflection of the new model and the changing auto industry itself.
