Volkswagen Tiguan- Ideal Crossover SUV for Colorado Drivers


The 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan is the ideal crossover SUV for Colorado drivers. 2013 Tiguan drivers say that the new Tiguan offers a smooth ride without compromising power for fuel economy.

The 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan comes with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and reviewers love its smooth power delivery. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic is optional. Test drivers said that the automatic is refined and shifts quickly, making it perfect for trailing up the back of a mountain for a weekend getaway ski trip.

The 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan is offered in a total of five different trim levels: S(base) S w/Sunroof, SE, SE with Sunroof & Navigation and SEL. Each trim adds to the Tiguan’s list of interior features and also upgrades some interior materials. For 2013, the Tiguan sees the addition of an electronic parking brake, as well as a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel and shiftier.

The Tiguan gets up to an EPA-estimated 21/26 mpg city/highway, which is a bit less than the most fuel-efficient SUVs in the class. The automotive press generally approves of the Tiguan’s fun driving dynamics, noting that it offers car-like handling, strong brakes and precise steering.
