Volkswagen Tiguan 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Volkswagen Tiguan 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Tiguan zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Tiguan 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.

The new Volkswagen Tiguan comes as an addition to VW’s line of three-row compact crossover vehicles. With larger space, the Tiguan joins the Atlas as German automaker VW tries to return to relevance in the U.S. market with SUVs. Both vehicles are currently the largest in their classes. The new Tiguan is, however, not that compact. With a reimagined design, it now comes as a near mid-sizer.

Its larger dimensions bring a corresponding increase in weight with the front-drive version weighing about 485 pounds. This is 82 pounds heavier than the larger Subaru Outback which comes with a 6-cylinder engine and in all-wheel-drive. Other similar vehicles that weigh way less include the Honda CR-V and the Nissan Rogue.

The Tiguan is available in multiple trims. In the U.S., it comes in three versions: the S, SE, and SEL. Other versions such as the Sport and Trendline are available in the United Kingdom and Russia respectively. Unfortunately, the current model still harbors a similar 2.0-liter, turbocharged, inline-four engine seen in previous generations. It comes with a mere 184hp, 6 horses less than the previous version.

Nevertheless, the torque has been increased from 207 to 221 lb-ft. The 4-cylinder, the turbocharged engine performs quite well in the front-drive version. It, however, struggles on the AWD. The front-drive can hit the 60mph mark in 8.2 seconds, a quite slow response compared to Honda CR-V’s 7.2 seconds. The AWD falls behind almost a second slower than its front-drive counterpart. This is also seen in finishing the quarter mile. The front-drive wins by 0.6 seconds at 86mph.

The Tiguan base S starts at $26,095. The figure progresses through the SE, SEL and SEL Premium trims. An all-wheel-drive additional feature in all models raises the figures by $1300. The SEL Premium comes well equipped but lacks the $295 Habanero Orange Metallic paint. It, however, does come with leather upholstery, an oversized sunroof that becomes defined under ambient lighting, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning, a power liftgate, an 8.0-inch touchscreen display, navigation system, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, steering-wheel and front-seats heating, configurable digital instrument cluster and a surround-view camera system.

The Tiguan touchscreen is an appreciable feature. It responds well to pinching and swiping motions. The navigation system, however, is somewhat of a downer. On a three-day multistop travel, it proved to be flaky, inefficient and unreliable. The system chose undesirable routes and gave wild swings in the estimated arrival time. The Waze feature, which is an Android Auto capability software, proved to be a viable alternative. The Apple CarPlay is also available but doesn’t incorporate Waze functionality.

The Tiguan tweener size is bigger than the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V. It might be a good choice for those that have occasional travels which require more than 5 passengers. The third row is, however, quite confined but can fit children and the shorter in size. It is not uncommon for three-row vehicles to have less space for luggage. The Tiguan provides about 12 cubic feet which can be increased by folding the rear and middle seats. The front-wheel version may be a good choice for those who prefer better fuel economy and increased performance.
