Fremont Volkswagen, based in Casper, Wyoming, explored changes in the new Volkswagen Tiguan on a recent web post.
The newest Tiguan has a longer wheel base with optional third-row seating and room to seat seven. The added 10 inches of length makes the Tiguan as long as the Honda CR-V and Chevrolet Equinox, the posting said.
The Tiguan comes with a new 2-liter turbocharged engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. A sport mode features slightly faster acceleration while the eco mode saves fuel. The Tiguan comes in front wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive versions. The AWD option has driving modes that are based on conditions, such as driving through snow, on roads, off roads or a custom off-road option.
The FWD version has third-row seats as standard. The AWD offers it as an option that costs $500 more.
The Tiguan gets an estimated 21 miles per gallon in the city or 27 miles per gallon on highways. This vehicle also does not require premium fuel as many other Volkswagen models do, the posting said. The Tiguan also comes with a six-year, 72,000-mile bumper to bumper warranty.
