The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan is worth checking out if you want your compact crossover to be rewarding to drive. But be aware that it comes up short in many key areas compared to top rivals. The new 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan shares its MQB underpinnings with the latter of those two. Which has allowed VW to increase passenger space and give the new Tiguan a huge boot. Quality also takes a step up and the Tiguan is available. Sporty handling doesn’t come at the expense of a comfortable ride quality.
2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Engine
The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan is only available with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine good for 200 hp and 207 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard. All-wheel drive is optional. The highest spec comes from VW’s new 2.0-liter TSI engine. That far out powers VW’s last high-performance 2.0-liter TSI in the first generation Tiguan that made 148 horsepower. There is little information whether we’ll get a sporty version like the Golf GTI to match the Tiguan R-Line’s muscular looks. What’s more likely is a hybrid utilising a 1.4-litre engine in conjunction with an electric motor as seen in VW’s other GTE models.
2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Design
The interior of the Tiguan is a little harder to predict, even though the report highlighted a few appointments an active instrument display. The 6.3-inch touchscreen is now standard, along with VW Car-Net apps and HD and satellite radio. The Tiguan have become such family favourites.
Drop the rear seats and total capacity is a healthy 1,655 litres. While the load bay is a square shape that makes it easy to use. Its easy-to-master menu layout and controls are among the best in the class, and it even incorporates Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality. You can even sync two phones via Bluetooth simultaneously, so a pair of passengers can play DJ. The rest of the Tiguan’s cabin doesn’t look as good as the segment’s leaders, however.
