Consider a used 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan if you want a crossover that delivers a knockout driving experience.
This vehicle runs on a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that isn’t here to mess around. It cranks out a lively 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. The Tiguan is fitted with a 6-speed automatic transmission, but comes with Tiptronic manual control for driving-enthusiasts who want to be in responsible for every gear change.
Thanks to its eager powertrain and athletic driving dynamics, the 2017 model has often been compared to the sporty Volkswagen GTI. Indeed, this compact-SUV is ready for action. However, KBB.com says that the Tiguan has a height advantages over its smaller sibling, granting you a higher ride position.
This VW is well equipped for when you want to take your time behind the wheel to the next level. Shift into Sport mode and the Tiguan will hold gears a bit longer, giving you a spicier ride. The 2017 model also boasts a Haldex-based 4Motion AWD system, which increases traction in unpleasant weather conditions.
