2013 Volkswagen Tiguan Overview

Nearly every mainstream automaker is now producing a small SUV for the ever-expanding market and Volkswagen has jumped into the running with the 2013 Tiguan. It’s competitively priced, starting at just $23,000 and contains almost every necessary feature as standard.

The 2013 Tiguan features a well-proportioned body that appears bigger than it really is. The front grille is classic Volkswagen, black with horizontal lines trimmed in chrome. Halogen headlights are standard with a daytime running feature, while brighter Bi-Xenon headlights are available. Available exterior features include roof racks, tow hitch, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and keyless start-stop.

The interior of the 2013 Tiguan is equally impressive. Every Tiguan gets a beautifully crafted interior with exquisite stitching, multi-function steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, 40/20/40 folding rear seats, and air conditioning. In fact, the Tiguan offers one of the better interiors Volkswagen makes; every switch and button is easy to find and operate, and the gauges are large and easy to read. The Tiguan also gets some rather impressive interior optaions, specifically a panoramic sunroof, automatic climate control, leather seats, and touch-screen navigation (among many others) are available.

All 2013 Tiguans come with the same engine, a 200-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 207 pounds-feet of torque. There are two available transmissions, a six-speed manual and a six-speed dual clutch automatic, with only the automatic getting four-wheel drive capability. Manual equipped versions of the Tiguan return 18/26 mpg city/highway, while the automatic returns 21/26 mpg city/highway.

Like most other small SUV’s in the segment, the Tiguan is full of safety features. Six airbags, side-impact door beams, seatbelt pre-tensioners, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, front crush-zones, and all manner of electronic driving aids are standard. ICRS (intelligent crash response system) is also standard and unlocks the doors, cuts the fuel pump, and turns on the hazard lights in the event of a collision. As a result, the IIHS awarded the Tiguan a “Top Safety Pick” rating.
