The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV comes into the market as a refined ride with great balance in handling. It has a punchy turbocharged performance with a premium, and comfortable, cabin. However, not everything about the vehicle comes off as perfect. There is the limited cargo space and the rear seat legroom suffers slightly as compared to its predecessor. Also, there is no efficient base engine available.
The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV is Mostly About its Looks
For the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV, it gains a few extra features for the standard model. These include heated front seats, “V-Tex” premium vinyl upholstery, a lower MSRP, and a keyless ignition. It also gets the latest Volkswagen touchscreen technology for its interface. Still, it misses the mark for what many are prioritizing if they are in the market for crossovers. However, it does provide a lot of positive elements.
For instance, the seating position is high, and seemingly higher than its rivals. This provides a tall, commanding view of the road ahead. It has, however, a smaller size which is a caveat especially when trying to stuff the storage space. Still, because of its smaller design, it is a benefit to maneuver within a busy parking lot.
Driving experience is good as the car is quite responsive. The ride is improved to make it a more pleasurable drive than that of a typical small SUV. When you hit the gas, the standard 200-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine will deliver powerful acceleration which is perhaps one of the quickest in the line.
For the 2016 model of the Tiguan SUV, one of the more notable features is its touchscreen interface. This feature makes its way into the vehicle that has already experienced a gap from the vanguard of infotainment features from its previous variants. Still, the 2016 Tiguan does not offer the high-tech accident safety features that other compact SUV has. For example, it does not have a forward collision or blind spot warning.
What the 2016 Tiguan lacks in technological features makes up for in a bold design. This compact crossover SUV can seat five people, and it is available in S, SE, SEL, and R-Line trim levels. Standard equipment will net you 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, automatic headlights and windshield wipers, a keyless ignition and entry, and also a tilt-and-telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel just to name a few.
The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV is an impressive drive because of its engine. It is powerful in just about any situation with its six-speed automatic transmission. Interested people who want to get their hands on this vehicle should know that all trim levels will have the same engine type.
