What’s new for the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan?
Some model years feature major redesigns across the lineup, while others give subtle upgrades to a good thing. For 2016 the Tiguan hasn’t changed much in appearance, but that doesn’t mean it lacks in worthy features to keep it competitive within the compact SUV segment. One of the upgrades most discussed for the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan in Glendale CA is the new infotainment system, the MIB II, which aims to offer better mobile integration with the in-dash touchscreen. Unlike proprietary systems of the past which only worked with select cellphones, the MIB II platform works with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink to ensure virtually any smartphone will connect with the system to give drivers access to convenient applications such as navigation, music apps, weather and more. The new infotainment system will have a five-inch touchscreen in the base S trim, while all other trim lines will have the larger 6.3-inch screen.
While technology upgrades certainly are appealing to every motorist, there’s no denying shoppers think with their wallets first. A price drop of nearly $1,400 makes the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan a practical choice in addition to having the most up-to-date features. Those who have been coveting the R-Line will also be pleased to note that it’s been reordered within the lineup, losing the premium price without dropping any of its features as it finds its new position between the S and SE trim lines.

While the upgrades for 2016 are certainly impressive, there’s much that remains the same about the Tiguan. The potent 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine continues offering a dynamic driving style that is surprisingly agile, but also offers the 2,200 pound towing capacity that makes the Tiguan a practical choice for those as interested in adventure as they are in luxury.
