2016 VW Tiguan Exterior Features
The stylish Tiguan is eye-catching and comes standard with black roof rails to make carrying larger items a breeze. The standard heated mirrors also add plenty of convenience, particularly if you ever take a road trip up north during the winter months. Keyless ignition means you never have to search for your keys, while the automatic wipers and automatic headlights take away some of the guesswork from driving. There is a full range of wheel choices based on trim level, including 16-inch alloys and larger wheels measuring 17, 18, or 19 inches. Those interested in using the Tiguan for towing will appreciate the available trailer hitch. You can also swap out the black roof rails for silver ones and get a panoramic sunroof that is large enough to offer views for all, regardless of where in the Tiguan you are sitting. The higher trims also add adaptive xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, and fog lights. There are also some minor differences in terms of colors among the trims, including the body-color exterior panels on the Tiguan Sport trim.
Interior Features of the 2016 VW Tiguan
Everything is well within reach thanks to the controls on the steering wheel, and the standard keyless ignition means you won’t have to dig your keys out of your bag to start the car. Experts agree that the 2016 Tiguan has a more upscale cabin than its competitors with its classic, restrained design. The front seats are supportive and firm, placing you upright and high enough to see the road around you clearly. Behind the rear seats, you get 23.8 cubic feet of storage, more than you would in another body style of the same size. These rear seats split 40/20/40 and slide, so you can expand the cargo area or keep your kids within reach. These seats even recline for added comfort of all passengers regardless of where you are sitting. Folding them down flat provides 56.1 cubic feet for cargo. The driver always gets power recline and manual height adjustment, and the steering wheel is trimmed in leather, tilts, and telescopes. Higher trims add power lumbar for the driver and power recline for the front passenger plus leather upholstery. Other noteworthy interior features include standard heated front seats and cruise control and available dual-zone automatic climate control.
Performance of the 2016 VW Tiguan
The Tiguan’s 2-liter 4-cylinder engine is turbocharged to deliver 200 horsepower plus a torque of 207 pound-feet. It works with front-wheel drive and a 6-speed automatic transmission, or you can opt for all-wheel drive. This available drivetrain comes in the form of 4MOTION all-wheel drive that delivers improved handling so you can tackle any road or weather without concern. You will get more than enough power in the Tiguan in any situation you encounter in Texas. The 6-speed automatic transmission always shifts quickly and smoothly and you will feel secure behind the wheel, even when going by corners. Keep in mind that the R-Line trim has firmer suspension tuning along with larger wheels that add a bit of impact harshness, although many drivers will agree that it is well worth any sacrifice thanks to the R-Line’s overall sportiness and unique features.
