2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Mentor OH
When an automaker has a good thing going, it can be hard to imagine things will get much better without an outrageous increase in price. Volkswagen is one automaker that knows how to do right by its fans, offering even more features in the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan near Mentor OH while simultaneously dropping the starting price by nearly $1,400. New for the model year is an upgraded infotainment system, the MIB II, which offers increased connectivity with smartphones by incorporating Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink integration for access to necessary phone applications.
A price drop and technology upgrades make the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan an appealing option already, but the trim levels have also been slightly reordered for the new model year, placing the R-Line between the S and SE trims. This places the aggressively styled trim at an accessible price point for those seeking a sportier SUV. Thee R-Line retains all the features it had last year while also adding on the larger 6.3-inch touchscreen, compared to the 5-inch screen found in the base trim level. The larger screen can be found on all trims aside from the base model for easier visibility at a glance.
The engine in the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan remains the same, providing the same potent acceleration and responsive driving style which has made the SUV a fun to drive option. Horsepower sits at 200, which never fails to give drivers the boost they need from start to stop.
There's little point in moving up to a roomier option if the SUV still won't have enough room for your daily haul. The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan bosts 23.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats in the upright position, providing plenty of room for sports gear or those bulk grocery trips.
New for 2016 is the Volkswagen MIB II infotainment system, which not only features a larger display that makes it easier to use while driving, but aims to provide better mobile connectivity through its range of VW Car-Net connected features. All but the base model will have VW Car-Net.

One of the major benefits to driving a Volkswagen is the premium quality the brand is known for, while retaining a price that is much more competitive than premium brands. Standard features such as heated side mirrors, a rearview camera, and touchscreen sound remain the same, while upgrades for the new model year include V-Tex leatherette, heated seats and keyless access with push-button start. The long-missing USB ports will not be present for fast and easy charging of mobile devices, and all but the base model Tiguan will receive the Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect.
If there’s one area in which the Tiguan does not need a change, it’s the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which offers one of the most dynamic driving styles available for a compact SUV. The powerful engine also allows for a fairly impressive towing capacity when properly equipped. Knowing if the driving style is as impressive as it sounds can only be discovered by driving this model for yourself.
