Volkswagen fans, are you ready to try the next critically acclaimed version of the Tiguan? Car and Driver rates this affordable model pretty high (9/10) even ahead of other class competitors like the Mazda CX-5 or Kia Sportage. We want to show you a few reasons to put this one on your list to test drive when you’re hunting for a new SUV.
2023 VW Tiguan
Crisp Handling & Performance
- The newest Tiguan edition gives you a pretty smooth ride with its turbocharged four-cylinder engine, including optional all-wheel-drive. While it’s not a powerhouse in terms of horsepower or acceleration, it’s one of the best SUVs for fuel economy. Its four-wheel drive gets 24 mpg in the city, and 31 mpg on the highway. The all-wheel drive versions only knock fuel economy down to 22 mpg and 29 mpg, respectively.
Great for Leg Space & Cargo Concerns
- Volkswagen did a solid job emphasizing function and utility on the inside of the Tiguan. Especially if you upgrade to a third-row selection, it has plenty of leg space for people and spare room for carry-on items. Although the Tiguan won’t break records for cargo space, it’s class-competitive, and even the most premium trim costs only $38,975. It’s ideal for small families.
Solid Interior Amenities
- Is it worth it to upgrade to a higher trim? It is if you’re ready for the Tiguan’s optional panoramic sunroof, faux-leather seating, and other amenities. There are lots of standard and optional infotainment features such as the 480-watt nine-speaker, and Fender audio system. All versions come with either an 8-inch or 10.3-inch digital touchscreen and compete with Wi-Fi capabilities, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. A single electric motor powers the entry-level ID.4. This setup generates 201 horsepower and 229 pound-feet of torque. If you desire greater power, pick the dual electric motors and 82-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which increase horsepower to 295 and pound-feet of torque to 339.
Reliable Safety Equipment
- You can stay safe driving around New York with several standard safety features like forward-collision alerts and blind-spot warnings. Optional features include lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and semi-autonomous driving modes.
If these look like things you need for better driving around Staten Island, then the Tiguan might be your best option.
