Exterior Features on the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan
The standard roof rails on the 2017 Tiguan mean that you can take everything you need with you, even if all seats are full. The Tiguan also comes standard with trailer hitch preparation for even more ways to carry cargo. The exterior of this Volkswagen is ready to deal with all weather conditions between the heat-insulated glass, rain-sensing variable intermittent windshield wipers, heated power side mirrors, and heated windshield washers. Those heated power side mirrors also have integrated turn signals across the entire lineup so it is obvious where you plan on going. The standard halogen headlights are brilliant and feature Daytime Running Lights. You can also upgrade to get LED license plate lighting, fog lights with halogen reflector lenses and low-speed corner-illumination, LED Daytime Running Lights, and bi-xenon high-intensity headlights. Don’t forget to consider adding a power tilting and sliding moonroof to your VW as well.
Interior Features inside the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan
The front seats of the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan are positioned to give you excellent visibility thanks to their high position. They are also firm and supportive, providing comfort during your entire commute or even a road trip. Everyone in the Tiguan gets more than enough headroom, even tall passengers. To help you find the perfect compromise between rear legroom and cargo space, the second row reclines and slides. Slide it forward when children are seated to keep them closer or if you need a bit more cargo room, or slide it back to fit taller adults. Make the seating of the 2017 VW Tiguan as luxurious as you want with available leather upholstery, 12-way power-adjustable front seats that include memory for the driver and 4-way power-lumbar, and a self-dimming rearview mirror.
2017 Tiguan Performance
There is a single powertrain available in the 2017 Tiguan, but it is efficient and powerful enough to satisfy even the pickiest drivers, meaning you aren’t likely to wish for anything else. The 2.0-liter 4-cylinder is turbocharged to give you 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. You can choose from front-wheel drive or 4MOTION all-wheel drive, either of which give you a 6-speed automatic transmission that also includes a Sport Mode. Models with 4MOTION all-wheel drive feature improved handling that let you tackle changing weather conditions or poorly maintained roads. The front-wheel drive versions can reach 60 mph in just 7.5 seconds, a very good time for the segment.
