2017 Volkswagen Tiguan: Five things you need to know
We hit the road in the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan and here are five things you need to know.
Nope this is not the newest Tiguan.
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.
That's so 2008.
And that's five things you need to know about the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan.
