2017 Volkswagen Tiguan West Chester PA
Volkswagen once popularly created ads for its Beetle with the words “Think Small,” to promote simplicity in an industry that was getting complex to the point of being bewildering for consumers. While the company goal remains to provide value and a level of simplicity, fans also expect impressive quality. Though its origins were humble, the Volkswagen name has grown to mean vehicles that are on the higher end for non-luxury brands, with nicer interiors, soft-touch materials and a host of standard and available features.
The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan in West Chester PA perfectly embodies the sort of vehicle modern shoppers are looking for from the automaker. The exterior features a simple but attractive design that makes good use of chrome accents to draw the eye. This compact SUV is easy to maneuver and can tow up to 2,200 pounds when properly equipped, in addition to having standard roof rails, all of which come together to create a model that is convenient for those living an active lifestyle as well as those simply seeking an attractive crossover.
A turbocharged engine can be found under the hood of the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan, delivering up 200 horsepower and 207 pound feet of torque. For a smoother ride, a six-speed automatic transmission comes standard and has Tiptronic and Sport modes for more control over gear shifts.
One of the benefits of a small SUV is that you get more space than your typical sedan. The Tiguan has 95.4 cubic feet of interior space and seats up to five adults. Cargo is more impressive than your average trunk, as the Tiguan fits up to 23.8 cubic feet before even folding the seats down.
One of the reasons to choose the Tiguan over other options on the market is that it’s a well-stocked vehicle from the start. Standard features include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, a 6.33-inch touchscreen system, heated seats, a rearview camera and keyless access.
