The Volkswagen Tiguan is a great choice if you want a sporty crossover stuffed with tech features. Understandably, the Tiguan has been a popular choice in the New Bedford area since its introduction about a decade ago. While the arrival of the 2020 edition is enticing with its new-car sheen, you don’t necessarily need to give up thousands of additional dollars to get one. Rather, get a used one if certain tech treats are not must-haves. The Tiguan already provides two formidable production cycles of models from which to make your pick.

Regardless of which model year you choose, the Volkswagen Tiguan guarantees a fun ride. The vehicle is small enough to make it feel light on the road without being flimsy, and it can make its way through the thickest of spots. For more sportiness on the road, go with an R-Line or SEL model, which has a tighter-tuned suspension. Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0-Liter four-cylinder, which gives the Tiguan a considerable punch from 0 to 60 mph. You can go for a second-gen model if you need more gears to reduce spaces between shifting, thereby enjoying a smoother driving experience around Acushnet.

In addition, there isn’t much of an increase in size between the first-generation and second-generation models, which debuted in 2009 and 2017, respectively. The Volkswagen Tiguan has always been known to be spacious; its cargo hold is particularly robust. However, spring for a second-gen model if you want the choice of a third row to expand maximum occupancy to seven people. Newport, RI drivers certainly won’t find that option on the Tiguan’s fiercest rivals, which include the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.
