2017 Volkswagen Tiguan in Glendale CA

Though they are both designated in the same automotive class, the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan in Glendale CA and 2017 Toyota RAV4 greatly differ in their influences and appeal. Given the RAV4’s high efficiency ratings and cargo volume, it makes for a great choice if you’re taking the family out for a relaxing road trip or day at the beach. However, for those who want a bit more power under the hood, exquisite styling both inside and out, and a slew of tech features that border the line between reality and fantasy, the 2017 Tiguan has just what you need. Flanked by its 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive, the Tiguan is able to rip through any obstacle or challenge with ease. Inside, you’re greeted by a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel that puts you in full control of your drive, and a panoramic sunroof that gives you full view of the beauty around the Tiguan’s own. Better yet, try the VW Car-Net® infotainment system on for size and there’s no other crossover that can provide the same level of connectivity, performance and comfort as our very own 2017 Tiguan.
