3 Key Selling Points of the Volkswagen Tiguan

The Volkswagen Tiguan is one of the best medium-sized SUVs in the world today. The pricing for the auto starts at £22,995, which is around $29,835.55. So what are the things that make it worth your money?

Here are the top 3 selling points of the SUV based on a Top Gear review:

1. Engine

The Tiguan is available in various engine trims. The most affordable comes in the form of the 1.4 TSi BMT 125 S 5dr. The petrol-fed unit packs a good 125 bhp enabling it to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in just 10.5 seconds.

For the environmentally-conscious buyers who are also looking for the most fuel-efficient model, the 2.0 TDi BMT 115 S 5dr is highly recommended for them. The diesel engine of the auto has a CO2 emission of 123 g/km and its fuel efficiency is rated at 60.1 mpg. Its output is pretty decent at 115 bhp with zero to 62 mph acceleration of 10.9 seconds.

For the ones who prefer the quickest powertrain, they should opt for the 2.0 BiTDi BMT 240 4Motion R-Line 5dr DSG. Priced at £38,955, the vehicle produces 240 bhp that allows it to sprint from zero to 62 mph in only 6.5 seconds. The only trade off is its 167 g/km CO2 emission and 44.1 mpg consumption.

2. Exterior

The Tiguan possesses a muscular frame accentuated by its artistically-placed body lines. The SUV measures 4,486 mm in length, 2,099 mm in width, 1,657 mm in height and 2,681 mm in wheelbase.  The standard model is fitted with 17-inch alloy wheels while the sportier, range-topping variant has 20-inch alloys wheels.

3. Interior

Not much can be said in the interior design of the Tiguan. The styling follows a practical approach, which puts over functionality and space before design. Owners can pimp up the interior of the auto with the optional Virtual Cockput TFT dials found in the Audi TT.

Top 3 Things To Know About The 2017 Skoda Octavia

The 2017 Skoda Octavia made a questionable move when it came out with a new exterior design last month. In turn, it wants to deliver more juicy details about the new driver assistance and infotainment systems.

1. Exterior

Based on a source, the most telling feature of the 2017 Skoda Octavia is the revised split headlights that are now close to the looks of the Skoda Kodiaq. It also has a much neater lower bumper with horizontal lines that emphasize the car’s width.

The Octavia falls between its competitors—the Volkswagen Gold and the Vauxhall Astra. The Octavia is based on VW’s MQB platform, which is one of the longer versions in the Group’s chassis lineup. This means that it will offer one of the class’ largest cabins. The wheelbase and overall dimensions, however, will remain unchanged.

2. Driver assistance system

What it boasts off is a slew of new driver assistance systems. This included predictive pedestrian protection for when the driver is speeding from 10 to 60 km/h (6 to 37 mph) and someone crosses or steps into the oncoming traffic. The feature, which is part of the optional Front Assist package, can automatically slam the brakes.

The Octavia also included the Blind Spot Detect, optional trailer assist system, Rear Traffic Alert, and Maneuver Assist.

The Rear Traffic Alert, in particular, will help those who are challenged by parallel parking. This is a welcome development, of course, for everyone who’s finding it hard to glide into tight spaces.

3. Infotainment system

Inside the Octavia, there’s a whole host of high-tech infotainment gadgets that will provide online services for real-time traffic info, fuel prices, news, weather, and parking options. There’s also a 9.2-inch display that supports Google Earth, Street View, and an online map update service.

For emergency purposes, there’s also the “Care Connect services,” which also includes the emergency call function.
