Which 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan models have Wi-Fi?
Volkswagen vehicles become more technologically advanced with each passing model year. A smartphone-compatible infotainment system is available on many, if not most new VW models available at the Compass VW showroom. For as much connectivity as that technology provides, as people change the way they work, they need to take advantage of every available tool they can. So, which 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan models have Wi-Fi? The ability to use a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot has been available for a while but combining it with the overall utility of the Tiguan is fairly new. Buyers choosing SE, SE R-Line Black, SEL and SEL Premium R-Line models will have this capability. Let’s take a closer look at what you can do with this technology.

Who provides the VW mobile Wi-Fi hotspot?
Volkswagen knows how to build cars but knows very little about developing a nationwide infrastructure to support a high-speed mobile internet connection. Our manufacturing partner has partnered with T-Mobile and Verizon to provide the internet access to properly equipped 2021 VW Tiguan models. Existing customers of either wireless provider may be able to combine their new data buck with their current account. If you have any questions about this, please ask an agent or representative of either company. Volkswagen won’t have any control over the billing of these accounts.
What else can VW Car-Net do?
Drivers and passengers in a properly equipped 2021 Tiguan will still be able to access the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites of applications. Other integrations include Amazon Alexa. If someone already uses an Amazon Alexa digital assistant will be able to connect the Car-Net system and send remote commands to the vehicle, like honking the horn, inquiring about the vehicle’s fuel level and much more.
If the owner of a 2021 Tiguan shares the vehicle with a teen driver, they will be able to keep tabs on what is going in. If the other driver exceeds a pre-determined top speed or leaves a pre-set geographic area, the owner will get an alert.
