2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Brooklyn, NY
Island Volkswagen of Brooklyn, NY proudly introduces the all new2017 Volkswagen Tiguan. This solid and nimble small SUV has high-end interior fit and finish and spacious rear seating, but the cargo area is small. Handling is very responsive and enjoyable, with sharp steering and strong cornering grip that keeps the Tiguan secure and unflappable at its limits. With its 19-inch tires, the SEL rides stiffly. The lower S and SE trim lines, with 17-inch tires, ride more comfortably and quietly. Automatic climate control is available only on the SEL, however. The 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder is smooth, but yielded a not-so-stellar 21 mpg overall in our tests. A redesign is on the horizon for 2017.
Two new trim levels, the Wolfsburg and the Sport, have been introduced for the2017 Volkswagen Tiguan, replacing the R-Line and SE grades. The base S trim adds additional standard features such as a 6.3-inch touchscreen, VW Car-Net App Connect for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, USB connectivity, and Bluetooth. On the Wolfsburg trim, additional standard equipment include a panoramic sunroof and unique floor mats. The Sport grade, on the other hand, comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, sport suspension, dual-zone climate control, black side mirror caps, and body-colored side sills and rear bumper. Look for a redesigned model to arrive for the 2018 model year.
A 2.0-liter turbo-four with 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque is the only engine available in the 2017 Tiguan and it’s paired exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is low for the class at 20/24 mpg city/highway for front- and all-wheel-drive models. The Tiguan’s cargo capacity is also on the small side for its class at 23.8 cubic feet with split-folding rear seats up and 56.1 cubic feet with them down. Higher trim levels of the Tiguan receive features such as HID headlights, navigation, larger alloy wheels, 12-way power adjustable seat, heated front seats, leather upholstery, and a Fender premium audio system.
