2017 Volkswagen Tiguan Thousand Oaks CA

It’s clear that for the ultimate and total package from your crossover, you can’t go wrong with either the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan in Thousand Oaks CA or 2017 Kia Sportage. If greater fuel efficiency is more your speed, you might be drawn to the Sportage, which can achieve up to 30 highway miles per gallon, but for those of you who want more power, durability and interior versatility out of your vehicle, the 2017 Tiguan holds an upper hand. It offers as many as 20 horsepower greater than the Sportage from a smaller engine, which in turn provides a smoother, more streamlined ride as a result of its six-speed DSG® automatic transmission. In addition, the VW Car-Net infotainment interface is one of the best in its class, and leather-trimmed seating combines with dual-zone climate control to create a driving experience that is second to none both inside and out. It’s clear that the 2017 Tiguan is capable of giving you the ultimate thrills on the road in ways that most other crossovers simply can’t.
