2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Wolfsburg and Sport trims

The Volkswagen Tiguan has been a go-to model for families looking for a secure, spacious vehicle that’s able to offer advanced features at a great value. For the 2017 model year, the Tiguan will continue to offer all of these great qualities, however a few notable changes have been made to its model lineup. The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Wolfsburg and Sport trims have been added in place of the R-Line and SE trims, giving the Tiguan better value than ever.

In previous models, the more advanced and high tech features were available only at the higher trim levels of the Volkswagen Tiguan. Volkswagen’s aiming to change that with the addition of its two new trim levels, the Wolfsburg and Sport grades, to the 2017 VW Tiguan. These trims will be replacing the model’s current R-Line and SE trims.

For 2017, the Wolfsburg will be replacing the R-Line model in the Tiguan lineup, and will feature unique Wolfsburg Edition badging on its exterior as well as its sport interior floor mats. The model will also feature a standard panoramic sunroof for an added element of style and comfort.

Instead of the SE trim, the 2017 Tiguan will offer the Sport trim, which will feature 18-inch gray Mallory aluminum-alloy wheels, body color side sills and rear bumper, accent black side-mirror door caps, a sport suspension and Climatronic automatic dual-zone climate control for a more comfortable, stylish ride. You can also upgrade the Sport trim to include available Vienna leather seating surfaces, power driver and passenger seats with driver’s seat memory function, and power folding door mirrors.

New standard features for the 2017 Tiguan

Additionally, more features will also be available as standards on the base level Tiguan. Now offering a better value than ever, the base S trim will feature the Volkswagen Composition Media infotainment system, functioning with a 6.3-inch screen while offering USB, Bluetooth and VW Car-Net App Connect connectivity. This new media system also comes with HD radio, two SD card slots, is able to sync two phones at the same time as well as a SiriusXM Satellite Radio trial.

These new additions to the base Tiguan make it easier than ever for drivers to get great technology and upscale features behind the wheel, without breaking the bank.
