2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Glendale CA
Some say Volkswagen isn’t entering the SUV and crossover market fast enough, but we say VW is taking its time to deliver models that won’t disappoint. The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan in Glendale CA is an excellent example as the model offers an attractive design that comes in five colors that perfectly highlight its curves. The interior is also high-quality and comfortable for trips both long and short. Mix the right features with a smooth driving style and it’s a solid option for those who enjoy luxury.
There can be little doubt that appearances are what first convince shoppers to take a test drive, but the ideal vehicle is so much more than just looks. Under the hood of the 2017 VW Tiguan is a 2.0-liter engine that delivers 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. Since most modern drivers prefer an automatic, the Tiguan starts off with a six-speed automatic that offers Tiptronic, Sport and Dynamic shift program. All these modes provide a customized driving experience without a manual clutch.
A sports utility vehicle should have the ability to actually deliver on the sporty aspect, right? A turbocharged 2.0-liter engine gives Tiguan drivers more versatility over rougher terrains, and all-wheel drive is available for even more traction over uneven or wet driving conditions.
If space weren’t a priority, many would stick to sedan options. The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan has 95.4 cubic feet of passenger space and comfortably seats up to five adults. The cargo volume is measured at 23.8 cubic feet, with 40/20/40-split rear seating to open up to a max of 56.1 cubic feet of space.
One of the reasons shoppers choose VW over other brands is that fans know this automaker doesn’t strip down its vehicles. Standard features in the Tiguan include App-Connect, a rearview camera, keyless access with push-button start, heated front seats and comfortable V-Tex leatherette upholstery.
What’s new for the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan?
Rumor had it that the Tiguan would receive a redesign for 2017, but this has been pushed back. For the most part, the model year hasn’t changed, but there are changes to the trim hierarchy. Both the R-Line and SE trims have been removed, being replaced with the Wolfsburg and Sport trim options.
The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan comes in four trim levels: S, Sport, Wolfsburg and SEL. Each option is available as a front- or all-wheel drive option, with the latter having the Volkswagen 4Motion system which is a part-time AWD drivetrain. This way, the model provides more torque to wheels that slip, but doesn’t use more gasoline than necessary under normal driving conditions.
Standard features for the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan S trim include heated side mirrors, the 6.33-inch touchscreen infotainment system, VW Car-Net App-Connect with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, Bluetooth with audio, a rearview camera system, power windows and locks, keyless access with push-button start, heated front seats and V-Tex leatherette upholstery.
Available features include a panoramic sunroof, sport suspension, built-in navigation, Fender Premium Audio, leather seating, dual-zone climate control and more. Find full details on each trim when you stop by New Century Volkswagen.
