2009 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

The people want to play. But they want to play nice. The 2009 Tiguan is the first Compact SUV from Volkswagen. The Tiguan has optional 4MOTION to tame the toughest driving conditions. It’s ready to spring into action and adjust during hazardous road conditions. Tiguan is outfitted with a 2.0L turbocharged direct injection engine that’s the next generation of the one found in our famously fast GTI named one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines three times in a row. With 200 horsepower and 207 pound feet of torque the Tiguan is the first ever-Compact SUV that feels kinda like a racecar. Tiguan features a state-of-the-art touch screen navigation system that combines a sophisticated radio with a precise touch screen navigation system and easy-to-use map views through its 6.5-inch high-resolution wide screen display. Tiguan is loaded with lots of features you know you want and a few you’ll want once you find out they exist. Every Volkswagen comes standard with 43 safety features that make up the Prevent and Preserve Safety System. The features work in harmony to both help you avoid an accident and protect you if an accident is unavoidable. The 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan it’s what people want.
