TrueDelta Reviews the Available Features of the 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan

2013 Volkswagen Tiguan Available Features: Cons
YearComment
Even with a list price near $40,000, the Tiguan lacks a number of features increasingly common in the segment. You can't get a power liftgate, adaptive cruise control, or any safety aids beyond a rearview monitor. But the R-Line does have dual 12-way power seats and a panoramic sunroof. see full Volkswagen Tiguan review
