Though crossovers are meant to round up as much utility and value as possible, and all the models that comprise the segment aim to offer the same, few will be ahead of others in this respect, while the rest will try to emulate them in their next edition release. The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is one such crossover model that has led its segment in offering all that which is expected out of it. Many of the Seaside Volkswagen dealerships hence promote themselves by highlighting the features of the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan that come standard on every trim model.
That is a lucrative list that they display, and we found them worth sharing to reach those who haven’t yet tried a test drive with this near perfect Volkswagen crossover.
This year Volkswagen has added some more value to the lineup of its flagship model Tiguan by standardizing its existing suite of advanced collision-avoidance features.
Volkswagen makes the 2020 version of Tiguan line up in S, SE, SEL and SEL Premium trim levels, that stack up more and more levels of comfort and convenience, as you keep adding more amount to the base price.
Power to Handle
No 2020 Tiguan is less powerful. At the lowest level, a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine rated at 184-horsepower runs the show after being paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission that sends the engine power either to the front wheels, following the standard rules, or optionally, to all four wheels.
This docile powertrain has enough verve to dish out a decent acceleration, and a composed handling, that can take care of all the challenges a crossover SUV can face while chasing wild destinations.
Standard Feature Count
Irrespective of the trim you choose, the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan will always ensure you a nicely decorated interior space, which has space enough for every occupant in every row of seats. The cabin will be invariably composed of low-sheen and soft-to-touch materials which are made to last a lifetime. In every trim the standard display will be of 6.5-inch touchscreen type. But if you find it small, you can upgrade it to a bigger 8.0-inch one. However, even the standard display will work well in tune with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to support both kinds of smartphone functionalities.
Let’s start with the Base Tiguan S models whose cabins come wrapped in easy-to-clean synthetic leather upholstery, automatic climate control, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, power features, a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and many more. In it you get a third row of seats for occasional use as standard and its drivetrain comes standard as front-wheel-drive.
The range topping SEL Premium trim upgrades the cabin comfort with leather upholstery, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, a power panoramic moonroof, entertaining the occupants with Fender audio, and a number of other optional upgrades.
Wrapping it Up
At a showroom of a popular Volkswagen dealer near Seaside, we heard a group of visitors appreciating the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan as an ideal crossover SUV that is more appealing because it chase the current trends and prefer to conserve its own styling cues. They called it a well-proportioned family hauler that has yet more attractions hidden in its overall value.
