Recently, a German motoring magazine called Autobild has declared the New 2016 Tiguan to be an all-wheel drive car of this year during their 2016 awards. Since the year 2007, this car has been a popular mid-range SUV, which made it a Unique Car. The company has sold above 2.8 million units of the vehicle around the world within a period of 9 years.
Latest model of the Tiguan displays an advanced and mature design as compared to the previous models of the car. It has a smooth and bold design on outside, while inside of the car offers a greater accommodating space in combination with a superior infotainment system.
Interior of the car is crafted quite well having a cockpit ergonomically design that helps keeping driver in control. Besides, the panoramic glass roof along with an ambient lighting provides great lighting for the passenger section.
The latest version of Tiguan comes with an updated and upgraded range of 8 engines. These engines range from 2.0ltr S TDI BlueMotion-Tech up tp 2.0ltr TSI 4MOTION BlueMotion-Tech.
With the availability of the car’s 4MOTION all-wheel drive system, car owners will be quite safe in knowledge that they will be having a wheel of reliable and stable vehicle.
Lane Assist is an integrated feature of safety system. It is activated from 40 mph, Area View (feature that helps in tight parking situations), along with an optional Trailer Assist (reverses the car into right position while the driver controls the brake and accelerator.
Tiguan is necessarily a tall and small car having a great utility combined with good gas mileage and affordable price. This car is probably a great fit for families that are in growing phase and require a vehicle with more flexibility, or for an older driver who wants easier seating position and entry/exit. Additionally, the car serves as a complete package because it comes with a comfortable, no-nonsense, and versatile interior package. The front seats of the car give a sporty yet supportive feel along with a great driving position and good comfort. The 2nr row seats tilt and slide, leaving enough leg space for adults. The slide and tilt ability also provides huge cargo space when nobody is using the 2nd row seat.
However, some of this car’s crash-test results are below par. The 2016 Tiguan model also lacks many active safety features. The model however, offers rear-side thorax airbags. The hill-decent control is another attractive feature of Tiguan as it helps maintain the speed on slopes. The electronic parking brake and hill-hold control are similar in all models.
The fuel economy numbers of Tiguan are not impressive particularly when compared with other SUVs of the same class. A few features of the Tiguan include power windows, power mirrors and locks, an AM/CD/FM player with 8 speakers, cruise control, lumbar adjustment for front seats, trailer hitch prep kit, Bluetooth, leather trim for steering wheel and shift knob, roof rails, rearview camera, and a satellite radio among many others. The prices for 2016 Tiguan begins from £25,560 whereas reach up to £31,925 for the top model Tiguan R-Line.
