We hit the road in the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan and here are five things you need to know.

VW debuted a newer, larger Tiguan earlier this year but then confused everyone when it announced that this now ten year old first generation model would continue to be sold along side it for a while longer The base model is actually pretty good.
With Android Auto, Apple Car Play, and Mirror Link as standard, you're just a smart phone and a USB cable away from really great navigation, audio streaming, and tech.
No options necessary.
The engine is pretty great.
The 2.0-Liter turbocharged four banger is the best part of driving the Tiguan with it's peppy 200 horsepower and 207 pound feet of torque.
But fuel economy is not so great.
[INAUDIBLE] makes a heck of a first impression but low 22 miles per gallon efficiency and a thirst for premium fuel proves to be a pretty sour Achilles Heal.
Options, what options?
The gen one Tiguan really starts to show its age when you look for advanced driver aided safety features and find a little more than a standard back up camera.
