Versatility. And that’s just for starters. The VolkswagenTiguan offers an impressive mix of turbocharged performance tech-savvy amenities and available all-wheel drive. It combines fun with sophistication—and it looks great too. Four trim levels are available from the well-appointed S to the top-of-the-line SEL. Each can be had with front-wheel-drive or Volkswagen’s exclusive 4MOTION all-wheel-drive. All Tiguans come with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine versatile interior and the latest technology to make your adventure even better. Built for your sporty soul exterior features like roof rails and power-operated and heated side mirrors are perfect for adventure in any weather. The Tiguan is packed with interior features too like 40/20/40-split rear seats that make packing up a cinch. Sync up wherever you are with available VW Car-Net® connected car suite. Display smartphone apps right on the touchscreen keep an eye on weather and more. The turbocharged engine provides 200 horsepower and the available 4MOTION all-wheel drive makes for dreamy handling. Choose from a selection of stylish exterior colors and interior trim options to make your Tiguan unique. The Volkswagen Tiguan is just the right fit for you and your adventures
The sporty Volkswagen Tiguan is just the right size and filled with features. The 40/20/40 split rear seats make accommodating gear or souvenirs a breeze. Even the front passenger seat folds flat in certain models. Forget the cooler? The glovebox has an adjustable cooling feature. Available extras like the panoramic sunroof make the Tiguan that much better. High-tech standards mean you’re always connected. Available VW Car-Net syncs your smartphone apps to the touchscreen and keeps you informed. It will even call for help in an emergency. The Volkswagen Tiguan. Technology you never knew you always wanted.
It can get wild out there and the Tiguan helps you stay safe when encountering the unexpected. Available VW Car-Net’s Security & Service feature automatically calls for help in an emergency monitors speed and boundary alerts and more. In the event of a collision standard safety features can make a difference. The safety cage helps protect you and your passengers in front rear or side impacts; while the Intelligent Crash Response System disables the fuel pump unlocks the doors and turns on the hazard lights in the event of a collision.
Turbocharged fun comes standard with the Volkswagen Tiguan. The two-liter engine combines turbocharging with direct injection for powerful performance and fuel-efficiency. Its 200 horsepower will compliment any trek from the beach to the mountains. Available 4MOTION all-wheel drive helps you navigate a variety of road conditions with ease. It senses when the wheels aren’t rotating equally then delivers more torque to wheels with traction for improved overall grip. Add the available sport-tuned suspension for tighter performance on those curvy roads and you’ll find with the Volkswagen Tiguan good looks travel fast.
