What are you looking for in a compact SUV? A lot of drivers want an SUV that can take them anywhere, regardless of the situation. The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan offers the ultimate in versatility. It will take you wherever you want to go, whether that’s on an exciting summer camping trip, through a treacherous winter snowstorm, or to the busy downtown office.
The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan is available at Nye VW of Rome. Our team created this vehicle review to help inform drivers in Rome, Utica, and Manlius, NY about the sporty design, impressive performance, and reliable safety of this all-purpose vehicle.
Design: Look Cool, Feel Cool, and Be Cool
The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan has all the amenities of a modern vehicle, and then some. The exterior features Bi-Xenon headlights that shine brighter and use less energy than either halogen or regular lightbulbs, and sleek 16” alloy wheels with an edgy 5-spoke design. The roof sports a set of rails to carry all of your important adventure gear: bikes, skis, kayaks, and just about anything else.
Some of the interior highlights include a keyless push-to-start button so that you can lock, unlock, start, and drive your car with your keys comfortably in your pocket. There is also an available panoramic sunroof that will allow the entire cabin, the back seats as well as the front, to bask in the majesty of the sunlight, the moonlight, and the starlight.
Performance: Standard 2.0-Liter Turbocharged Engine
Incredible performance capabilities come standard on the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan, with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that delivers up to 200 horsepower and 207 lb.-ft. of torque.
And to make this souped-up ride as smooth as possible, it includes a six-speed automatic transmission with a sport mode for when you really need to let loose on the road. But perhaps most useful of all for a compact SUV is its available 4MOTION all-wheel drive, which improves the handling so that you can drive through tough weather and road conditions without a problem.
Safety: Explore with Confidence in the 2017 VW Tiguan
The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan was made with your safety in mind, from its construction to its high tech features. It has built-in front and rear crumple zones, as well as a strong safety cage, to protect you in case of a crash. For an added layer of safety, certain parts of the body are constructed with specially alloyed high-strength steel.
In terms of safety technology, the Tiguan utilizes an Automatic Post Collision Braking System and an Intelligent Crash Response System to further protect you should an accident occur. These systems will automatically bring the SUV to a stop, turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and activate the hazard lights after a collision.
