2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Long Island NY
The perfect in-between vehicle for those who want to step up to something larger than a car or hatchback, but aren’t looking for a monstrous people-hauler. The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan in Long Island, NY meets all of the requirements expected of a compact crossover; it has a comfortable amount of space for front and backseat passengers, a flexible amount of cargo room, is safe and practical, but best of all, it’s fun-to-drive, just as you would expect of any other Volkswagen.
The Volkswagen Tiguan is one of two sport utility vehicles that VW offers; its larger brother is the luxurious Touareg. Both vehicles seat five passengers and continue to deliver the high quality Volkswagen is respected for. Stylish, comfortable, and refined, the Volkswagen Tiguan is easy-to-handle as well as obedient and responsive because of its turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Even though it's a larger VW family member, the peppy turbocharged fun is still there.
An alternative engine is not listed for the VW Tiguan, and once you take the wheel, you’ll understand why. The turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine is capable of producing 200 horsepower and earning a fuel economy rating of 21 city/ 26 hwy mpg.
The rear seats of the Volkswagen Tiguan can split and fold, helping to create a maximum cargo carrying capacity of 56.1 cu-ft. A roof rack is standard on the Tiguan and can be used to store additional equipment, cargo, etc…
Technology-wise, this has been an exciting year across the entire Volkswagen lineup. Volkswagen’s new infotainment system, MIB II now allows drivers to access Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto.
2016 Volkswagen Tiguan: Quality and comfort for all
One of the main expectations when moving up to a crossover SUV, no matter the size, is that it will provide more room than a car’s cabin. Rather than squeezing in a third row of seating that will leave everyone in the back scrunched, the Volkswagen Tiguan continues to seat five and can comfortably fit adult passengers in its backseat.
Everyone will be able to enjoy their own personal space and stretch their legs, while the storage space behind is roomy enough to fit a variety of cargo items and equipment.
The seats of the Tiguan are also comfortable enough to sit in for an extended amount of driving time.
The front seats in particular are built to be supportive but also feel sporty because of the Tiguan's perky performance.
With excellent roadside manners, the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan of course serves as a utility vehicle but doesn’t leave behind its fun and above-average driving dynamics.
Its engaging driving experience won’t put you to sleep when you’re stuck driving the same routes over and over on a daily basis. To experience the driving nature of the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan first hand and learn more about its fine craftsmanship and all-new technology, we welcome you here to Donaldsons VW for a test drive!
