2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Drops Entry-Level Price To $22,860

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

Since Volkswagen released its premium crossover called the Tiguan, many have criticized it because it’s prices higher than most of its competitors and contemporaries. The German automaker announced, however, that a Limited model of the Volkswagen Tiguan will be selling for $22,860.

The Limited model is based on the previous-generation Tiguan, but will sell alongside the 2018 Tiguan that uses the MQB architecture. The 2017 Tiguan S, which was the base model, has a starting selling price of $25,860 while the new 2018 Tiguan has an even higher price tag of $26,245.

Though the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited has very basic features, it more than make up for the lower price. The 2017 Tiguan Limited model has 16-inch steel wheels, halogen headlights, 5-inch touchscreen display, rearview camera, Bluetooth, and cloth seats.

If you are not contented with these, you can upgrade it with a Premium package for $1,295. They’ll get a 6.33-inch touchscreen, VW Car-Net connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and an HD radio. It also has leather steering wheel, keyless access with push-button start, roof rails, and cruise control.

Do you want a 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels? That would cost $495 more.

There is enough power to entice buyers to shell out their money for the 2017 Tiguan Limited. Power is sourced from a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine that can produce 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. All the models will be paired with a six-speed transmission (the 2018 model offers an eight-speed transmission).

You should be happy to know that this new-ish model grew 10.6 inches in length and 7.3 inches in wheelbase, meaning an increased cargo space and second-row legroom. The 2018 model is much better with an improved cargo space, thanks to a third-row level.

Finishing these all up is the choice of either a front- or an all-wheel drive. This model, an alternative to the pricier Tiguan variant, will arrive soon in dealerships.

Top 3 Features That We Can’t Wait To See In The I.D. Buzz Vokswagen Bus

i.d. buzz

Since 2001, German company Volkswagen has been hinting of the possible return of its much-loved Microbus. After more than a decade of waiting, it looks like VW is finally ready to give us what we have been looking forward to—the I.D. Buzz.

The next-generation bus first appeared as a concept car called the Bulli at the 2011 Geneva motor show then as the electric Budd-E Concept at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2016 and finally, as I.D. Buzz Concept at the 2017 Detroit auto show.

During the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, VW announced that the I.D. Buzz will be put into production and will be released sometime in 2022. This will make the second time that VW tries to make its mark in the electric vehicle industry. The first one was the compact four-door hatchback called the I.D.

1. I.D. Buzz Cargo

It looks like we’re not only going to be treated to an I.D. Buzz, but an I.D. Buzz Cargo as well. VW promised that the minibus won’t just be able to carry passengers, but cargo, too. Aside from that, the passenger variant will have configurable seating and interactive connectivity. The seats can be turned almost 360 degrees, so that passengers face one another.

The I.D. Buzz will also be able to save user settings or profiles to the cloud. The setting will save the seat position, destinations, music preferences, colors of the display, and many more.

2. Battery and Power

VW has yet to release the battery size, but the concept wears the batteries in the floor, which allow for short overhangs front and rear. The vehicle will have two motors, each one placed on the axle and can create a total of 369 horsepower. According to VW, the I.D. Buzz will be able to drive 270 miles on a single charge.

3. Autonomy

The I.D. Buzz will use Level 3 autonomy, which can handle all driving duties under certain conditions, though a driver must always be present in case the system requests for his intervention. The concept vehicle allows for a retractable steering wheel for a fully autonomous driving mode.

The I.D. Buzz will be offered in North America, Europe, and China.
