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

Stop by Island Volkswagen near Staten Island, NY to compare the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan versus the 2017 Kia Sportage. Comfortable doesn’t mean dull. Smooth and responsive on paved roads, the 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. Within Off-Road Mode custom settings, the driver can set various parameters like steering and all-wheel-drive options to their own preferences. Don’t let the good looks fool you. The inside may be VIP, but under the hood, it’s all SUV. With capability to go up, down, over, or around as needed. Having eight speeds can help improve efficiency and performance. In Tiptronic mode, you can shift manually and take control of your driving experience. Refinement describes the interior. As for the 184-horsepower turbocharged engine, the word “entertainer” seems more appropriate. 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 Sportage falls short. With its expanded cargo space, the Sportage has ample capacity for everything you want to take on your travels. The 60:40 flat-folding rear seats and dual-level cargo floor give you the versatility to create the space you need for every trip. Smart compartments have been added to provide even more ingenious storage solutions. Available on all 2017 Sportage trims, the Dynamax™ all-wheel drive system senses and adjusts traction requirements for changing road and weather conditions. Nimble handling and impressive power converge with surprising fuel-efficiency. Take your pick from two four-cylinder engines: the LX and EX come standard with a high-output 2.4-liter engine that is among the segment leaders, while the SX Turbo model gets an even more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. And the 6-speed automatic transmission, with key brake enhancements, delivers a smoother, more efficient ride.
