  • Max towing capacity — 1,500 lbs.
  • City/highway MPG — 22/29
  • Horsepower — 184 hp

2020 Volkswagen Tiguan Driver-Assist Features

We’re proud to offer a vehicle that Clearwater drivers can trust to keep their family safe. If you’re looking for a vehicle with the most advanced and effective safety tech in place, the 2020 Tiguan safety ratings should provide some peace of mind:

  • J.D. Power. Predicted Reliability Rating — 4/5 stars
  • The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Safety Rating — 5/5 stars in side crash tests and 4/5 in rollover tests

The Tiguan offers a comprehensive suite of driver-assist technologies that sense road conditions and potential hazards and make automatic adjustments:

  • 4MOTION® all-wheel drive — Reacting to road conditions as they change, available 4MOTION distributes power between the front and rear wheels as needed to help optimize traction and stability.
  • On-Road Mode – For further optimizations, the Tiguan manual transmission Tiptronic® mode can match the current conditions. If the surface is paved and conditions are good, stay in On-Road Mode and choose from four different settings combining performance and comfort.
  • Off-Road Mode – For help maintaining traction on challenging road surfaces, choose off-road mode.
  • Hill Descent Control — If you need control while descending a steep hill, Off-Road Mode can activate Hill Descent Control to control your speed.
  • Off-Road Custom – Also within Off-Road Mode custom settings, Wesley Chapel drivers can set various parameters like steering and all-wheel-drive options to custom preferences.
  • Snow Mode – Snow Mode allows the engine to upshift earlier to keep it in a lower RPM range, and prevent power from going to the wheels too quickly.
