 Products: A Car that Remembers You

Today's Manager
September 1, 2017


I was thrilled to bits that the car said “Welcome Sadie-Jane” when I started it. Then I found out that it gets better, it not just remembers my name, but it would automatically adjust seats according to how I like it set. There are two sets of keys per car and each can be set according to each driver’s preference. So take note, ensure that you always take the right key with you.

You must be wondering what car I am talking about. It is none other than the latest offering from Volkswagen, the Tiguan.

This is the best version of the car to date. It was comfortable and obviously much smarter than previous versions. There are quite a few cars in the market that can parallel park your car for you when you press a button in the car. However, this one takes it one step further as it can park head first into the perpendicular lot for you. All you need to do is decide which spot you would like to park in headfirst, enter it slightly, and the car cleverly adjusts itself perfectly into the lot. Brilliant right?

I love this car to bits but if I have to say anything negative about it, it will be that I do not like how the cruise controls are placed. However, this may only apply to me as it all depends on how you hold the steering wheel. There are three variations of the Tiguan but in my humble opinion, if you are going to invest, why not just get the best? It may be a pretty penny, but it is worth every cent.

Oh and before I forget, my favourite feature of all is the heads-up display which tells you how fast you are driving. It actually made me feel like I was in a futuristic car. Who knows, maybe Kitt will be here sooner than I think!
