Style and speed in one cute little package!

First off, the Tiguan is really fun to drive. It is quick and has great maneuverability. You can also put it in sport mode, if you really need to feel that rush. It also has the option to manually switch gears. Driving the Tiguan is a fun experience! The styling is also great. I love the tan leatherette seats - which are heated, a must have. The interior is clean and chic. My Tiguan is navy blue, my favorite color, and looks so sleek. Even though the 2018 model got a refresh, my 2016 still looks modern and stylish. The infotainment center stack is clean and easy to read. This is my first car with a touch screen and I may never go back buttons again. I love the Bluetooth integration as well as the USB port so I can play my music or take calls hands free. This is also my first car with a backup camera. What a great feature! I love being able to see what’s behind me as I reverse or back into a parking spot. I have named her veronica, and she is such a pleasure to zoom around town in. Really happy with my decision to go with VW!

2016 Volkswagen tiguan fully loaded from heated seats to panoramic roof.

My Volkswagen is a 4 cylinder with turbo and uses premium gas (91 if you can find it, if not a 93). I love the panoramic roof, heated seats, back-up camera, and stereo system(phenomenal) which is factory. I wish the trunk was bigger, but my car also comes with a spare tire which is in the trunk not underneath. I love that at night when I go to turn you get an extra light that comes on so you can see the curb(how awesome!). There is heated side view mirrors for the snow days in the winter and it is AWD, which I definitely need and absolutely love. You can also add a hitch too(which I plan on doing in the upcoming months). The back seats fold forward in case you need the extra room for moving things and leather seats which makes cleanup easy.

VW Tiguan is perfect for me.

I just bought my car about 6 weeks ago so it is still new to me. I like the outside appearance, it is the r-line edition. I like that it connects to my phone and displays my apps on the screen. I like the size, it is not too big or too small. I like that the back seat and passenger seat folds down so if I needed to purchase something that is large then I would have more room. I like that the inside is two toned, black and tan and the lights are red. The windshield wipers have a sensor mode that is spot on so that is convenient. The fan in the motor runs a little loud but other than that I do not really have any complaints.
