NEW YORK DAILY NEWS. Monday, February 11, 2013

The 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan manages to stand out in an increasingly crowded crossover market. This five seat compact crossover starts at $22,995 and offers a serious amount of power in a compact package.

With the crossover market quickly becoming saturated with great options, Volkswagen’s entry offers a bit of something for everyone. Find out more about this mighty crossover.

Volkswagen Tiguan Trims and Features

The Tiguan is a five seat compact crossover SUV that comes in three trim levels for 2013: S, SE, and SEL. Starting at $22,995, standard features include a turbocharged 200 horsepower 4-cylinder engine, 26 highway MPG, 56 cubic feet of cargo space, and an upscale cabin with comfortable and versatile seating. All trims are given an all-wheel drive option, though most would agree that Tiguan’s car-like ride is better suited to on-road adventures.


All Tiguan trims can be fitted with niceties like a panoramic sunroof and alloy wheels, while SE trims get tech options like a touch-screen sound interface and touchscreen navigation, as well as heated leatherette seats. SEL trims get all of the aforementioned, plus a sport-tuned suspension for superb driving dynamics, a rearview camera, dual-zone climate control, Bi-Xenon headlights, and push button start.

Volkswagen Tiguan Performance

Look under Tiguan’s hood and you’ll find a turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder that kicks out 200 horsepower and 207 lb.-ft. of torque. The direct injection engine will get you from 0 to 60 MPH in less than eight seconds, which is plenty quick for the compact crossover segment.

Choose the Tiguan S and you’ll get a standard 6-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed automatic option that features Tiptronic for manual shifts. Front-wheel drive is standard on every Tiguan, though 4Motion All-wheel drive (AWD) is available on all trims save for the manual S.
