2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Vs. 2017 Kia Sorento Staten Island, NY

Come by Island Volkswagen near Staten Island, NY to compare the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Vs. 2017 Kia Sorento. Comfortable doesn’t mean dull. Smooth and responsive on paved roads, the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan remains commanding and confident even if the road surface becomes more challenging. As conditions change, available 4MOTION distributes power between the front and rear wheels as needed to help optimize traction and stability. In Snow Mode, the engine can upshift earlier, which helps keep it in a lower RPM range and helps prevent too much power from going to the wheels too quickly. In good conditions on a paved road, stay in On-Road Mode, and choose from four different settings combining performance and comfort. Having eight speeds can help improve efficiency and performance. In Tiptronic mode, you can shift manually and take control of your driving experience.

The available 12.3″ display is a true breakthrough. Instead of the traditional instrument cluster, information can be displayed digitally in high resolution. The Tiguan can store up to four driver profiles, remembering your personal preference for a wide variety of different settings and systems. To start App-Connect13 simply plug in your compatible smartphone and watch as your select apps appear on the touchscreen display of your Volkswagen. City streets can throw more than enough challenges your way. So we designed our available Driver Assistance features to help you meet them with confidence. The available feature Pedestrian Monitoring has a radar sensor to help alert you if a pedestrian is headed into the vehicle’s forward path. If the driver doesn’t respond adequately to the audible and visual warnings, the car can brake automatically with full force. The sensors on the available Blind Spot Monitor are able to help sense what you might miss. When you’re changing lanes, the Active Blind Spot Monitor (available when vehicle is equipped with Lane Assist) on select models can detect when another vehicle is in your blind spot. Within the limits of Lane Assist, it can then counter-steer to help keep you in your lane and in addition to the visual warning in the side mirrors, the steering wheel can vibrate.

When compared to the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan, the 2017 Kia Sorento falls short. With the available Dynamax All-Wheel-Drive system, the 2017 Kia Sorento delivers a smooth, refined drive even on rough roads. Choose from three engines to fully customize your experience.

The fully active Dynamax All-Wheel-Drive system continuously monitors road and driving conditions to anticipate your needs.
