VW 2009 Tiguana is one economical CUV

Considering that it is also known as the “GTI of Crossover Vehicles”, VW really has got it all figured out with the Tiguan. Don’t expect them to explain to you just what Tiguan means as apart from the Beetle and the Golf and the Polo, their vehicles usually do not have much meanings, especially in their names. Perhaps the only thing that actually makes sense with VW cars are its performance. This car comes standard with its 2.0 T turbocharged 4 cylinder engine.

The car comes with a panoramic sunroof as well as safety systems like the Prevent and Preserve Safety system, 6 airbags as well as rear side airbags as additions. The design of this car is pretty stylish and to a large extend, it looks like a smaller version of the Touareg(don’t ask), but with cleaner edges and more refined curves. Where this is concerned, a lot of people said that the Touareg do look a bit untidy due to its size, and all that has been solved here. Inside the car, you get a very cool designed interior as well as the 6.5 inch HD display touch screen system which apart from the fact that you can easily connect your iPod to it, it also comes with memory card slots and a 30GB hard disk.

The 2.0 liter TSI engine in all versions comes with a 200 horsepower engine and 207 lb-ft of torque turbocharged and mated with a 4 cylinder engine within its 6 speed, all-wheel drive automatic transmission gearbox. This also comes with the Tiptronic mode which, like the Porsche boxster allow you to shift the gears as you go without having to go through the hassle of the clutch. In all circumstances, the Tiguan is one great car to drive and seriously, the handling and performance of this machine to give its competitors something to think about, especially in terms of upgrades. {mosimage} {mosimage} {mosimage} {mosimage} {mosimage}
