Does the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan have a CD player?

2020 Tiguan CD Player Feature Availability

It seems like it wasn’t all that long ago that having a CD player in your car, as opposed to a tape player, was a modern hallmark. This exciting feature opened up new avenues of audio fidelity and playing convenience; no more did a cassette tape have to flipped over or fast-forwarded through manually. With the CD player available, many of us proceeded to amass large collections of CDs from our favorite artists.

Where can I buy VW currywurst in the US?

Finding the Volkswagen Sausage

One of the most unique bestsellers in the Volkswagen brand isn’t an automobile or related part at all; it’s a sausage. Branded as a “VW original part” (specifically number 199 398 500 A), VW currywurst has been produced since 1973. Since that time, it’s won prizes at German food fairs and received gold awards from the German Agricultural Society.

Though mostly made with the intention of feeding their employees, the currywurst has gained popularity beyond the VW factory cafeterias and can be found in supermarkets and football (i.e., soccer) stadiums across Europe. It’s also given away to Volkswagen customers in that continent when they purchase a new VW.

If you’re like us, talk of the VW currywurst immediately gets those salivary glands running. So, can the desire for a delicious Volkswagen sausage be satiated? Where can one buy or find VW currywurst in the United States?
