When it comes to choices, shoppers have a wide variety of SUV options from which to choose, but not nearly enough of them are truly spirited. At some point it seems the fun aspect was removed in favor of the family-friendly ideal, but why can’t it be both? This is the thought behind the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Middletown NY, which is a vehicle that not only offers plenty of space, but a lot of style, features and a potent powertrain to provide both a capable model and one that’s exciting for daily adventures.
One of the things that makes the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan a unique choice on the market is its standard 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine which returns an impressive 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque, earning it an estimated 7.7 zero-to-60 acceleration time. Pair its remarkable engine figures with a standard six-speed automatic with Tiptronic, Sport and Dynamic Shift Program modes and you get a model that is not only responsive, but gives a range of advanced controls over performance.
One of the benefits of driving a larger vehicle is the extra cargo space for larger purchases, moving bulky items and carrying along sporting gear. The Tiguan has 23.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats upright, which is perfect for most purchases, and a maximum cargo capacity of 56.1 cubic feet for everything else.
Luxury is one of the things that comes to mind when considering the Tiguan, and it doesn’t fail with standard features that include heated side mirrors, Bluetooth with audio, a rearview camera system, a USB port for charging mobile devices, keyless access with push-button start and a 5-inch touchscreen.
One of the key ingredients in creating a fun ride is a potent powertrain, and the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan delivers in a big way with a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine which delivers 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. The result is an energetic feel for this upscale crossover SUV model.
There are a variety of reasons why people choose a crossover SUV, and when the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan first hit the market it faced less competition. Despite the growing market, the Tiguan continues to be offered with premium features that make it a plushier alternative to some of the more stripped-down options. Well-fitted materials bring a classy look and feel to the interior, especially thanks to standard soft-touch materials and the V-Tex leatherette upholstery.
