For 2017, Volkswagen carried over the 2016 Tiguan as a budget-minded SUV option. Branded as the Tiguan Limited, it is sold alongside the newly redesigned Tiguan. The Limited comes in front-wheel as well as 4Motion all-wheel drive with a 2.0L engine that makes 200 horsepower. Prices start at around $22,000.
The Volkswagen Tiguan Limited is offered in just one trim for 2017. It's powered by a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine that makes 200 horsepower and 207 lb-feet of torque. It feeds a 6-speed automatic with manual-shift capability. 4MOTION all-wheel drive is optional.
The Tiguan is a crossover wagon, and it allows plenty of passenger space plus a suspension setup that allows it to ride and handle like a compact sedan. A strut-type front suspension and 4-link rear setup provide stable handling, while an electromechanical power steering system provides precise control. The Tiguan includes 4-wheel vented disc brakes, with vented discs in front as well as brake assist and an electronic parking brake. The Tiguan can tow up to 2,200 pounds when properly equipped.
Inside, the Tiguan Limited's design affords easy entry and exit and good visibility from the driver's seat. The back seat is also quite spacious and split 40/20/40, allowing access to a full 56.1 cubic-feet of cargo-carrying space -- over the already spacious 23.8 cubic-feet with the back seat in place.
Standard equipment includes power heated side mirrors, automatic headlights, V-Tex leatherette seats, air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless entry and an 8-speaker sound system.
Available upgrades include 17-inch "Philadelphia" alloy wheels and an upgraded 6.3" touchscreen infotainment system that includes Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The Premium Package includes a leather-trimmed steering wheel, cruise control, push-button start and a folding cargo cover.
The Tiguan Limited includes such standard safety features as dual stage airbags, antilock brakes, stability control and a rearview camera.
