This car is the exact size we had been looking for. It rides and sits good. Very roomy and excellent on gas. We love it.

Good car, good value

I was looking for a safe all-wheel-drive car with a good engine, and didn't care about looks. I got all of those requirements with this car, and more. It has enough height, so I have a good field of vision. There's plenty of space in the car, but it doesn't have a huge footprint. It's got a lot of extras and its looks are growing on me. I don't know how reliable it is since I've only had it for a few days!

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Overview


The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan is a compact SUV that seats up to 5 passengers. It competes with the Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5, and Toyota RAV4. This year, it has removed the R-Line and SE trim levels, but adds new Wolfsburg and Sport trims.

Four trims are available: the S, Wolfsburg, Sport, and SEL.

The Tiguan has a bulbous front-end with an outstretched grille and wing-shaped headlights. The wheel wells are squared-off for a more rugged-look. The underbody trim is clad in black, and protrudes out at the rear. Heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators and 16-inch alloy wheels come standard. Bi-Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, power-folding side mirrors, a panoramic moonroof, a rear spoiler, and larger 17-, 18-, or 19-inch alloy wheels are available as well.

Under the hood, the Tiguan is powered by a standard 200-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard, while all-wheel drive is optional. The Sport and SEL trims come with sport-tuned suspension as well. Fuel efficiency for the Tiguan is an EPA-estimated 20/24 mpg city/highway.

Inside, the Tiguan has a standard V-Tex leatherette interior with a flat-folding front passenger seat and a 40/20/40 split-folding rear seat. Maximum cargo capacity is 56.1 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down. The center stack features the standard Composition Media system with a 6.3-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port. It can be upgraded to the Discover Media unit with an integrated navigation system and a Fender premium audio system. Standard features include automatic climate control, heated front seats, a leather-wrap steering wheel, remote keyless entry, and push-button start. Leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a power driver’s seat are also available.

Standard safety features include a backup camera, a tire pressure monitoring system, and Volkswagen’s Intelligent Crash Response System that shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and switches on the hazard warning lights if the airbags deploy.
