2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Springfield MO
They say great things come in small packages, which may be why drivers are leaning more and more toward crossover SUVs. The exterior gives the same aggressive styling one would expect to find in a full-size model, but in a package that is easier to maneuver and park. The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Springfield MO is one such model, which only improves each model year. The things that appealed last season continue on for 2016, but technology features have been boosted for an even better experience.
Under the hood of every trim level of the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan is the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine which delivers 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. Paired with the engine is a six-speed automatic transmission which features Tiptronic, Sport and Dynamic Shift Program modes to allow drivers a variety of driving options. Fuel economy is an EPA estimated 21 city and 26 highway mpg rating, which is average for its class. This means it provides the right balance of power and economy.
We’ll say it once: driving should be fun. The Tiguan ensures this is the case for drivers by offering one excellent powertrain without forcing drivers to choose between lesser options. A 2.0-liter turbocharged engine delivers 200hp and it’s paired with a silky-smooth shifting 6-speed automatic transmission.
Driving a Tiguan is about enjoying ease behind the wheel, which is easiest to do in a model that offers excellent features. The base trim starts out with heated side mirrors, a rearview camera, Bluetooth with audio, keyless access with push-button start, V-Tex leatherette upholstery and heated front seats.
There are a few benefits to driving a crossover, and improved cargo space is one of them. The 2016 Tiguan has 23.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats in place and up to 56.1 cubic feet with the rear seats folded and pushed forward. Max towing capacity is also 2,200 pounds when properly equipped.
What’s new for the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan?
The driving dynamic for the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan makes it just as fun to drive as it was last year, but there are a few new features which make it a better value. One of the most obvious ways is simply its price. This year the model is coming in at a cost of only $24,890, which is nearly $1,400 lower than the price was last year. Those who have been eyeing up the R-Line trim will be pleased to note the sportier styling can be found repositioned between the S and SE trim levels, allowing for shoppers to choose the more aggressive aesthetic without paying a premium price for the model.
The other big news for the 2016 model year is the new technology features which not only add convenience, but provide additional features for no extra cost. New for this model year, the upholstery has been upgraded to V-Tex leatherette, the front seats are heated and keyless access with push button start. The 5-inch MIB II infotainment system is also standard, which brings with it a USB port rather than the MDI port found in previous model year Volkswagen vehicles.
