2018 Volkswagen Tiguan: Better in Every Way
March 27 2018, Crosby Volkswagen
The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan was redesigned last year, and the best way to summarize Volkswagen’s compact SUV is that it’s truly been improved in every way. The Tiguan always stood out because it offered an impressive combination of performance, refinement, handling, and comfort. Having said that, it somewhat lacked in terms of interior space. The new 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan no longer has this problem!
A More Powerful Engine and a Lot More Space Inside the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is indeed a lot more spacious thanks to a new platform with an extended wheelbase. This increased interior space makes it possible to add a third row of seats, which can accommodate up to seven passengers. Even if you don’t add this option, you’ll still get a roomy cabin for passengers.
Cargo space is now more than 1,000 litres even with all seats in place, and more than 2,000 litres with the rear seats folded. That’s nearly double what you’d find in the previous-generation Tiguan!
This new platform also translates into improved comfort and better driving dynamics. Speaking of driving dynamics, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan will never leave you wanting when it comes to power thanks to a new 2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower and an impressive 221 pound-feet of torque.
This engine offers more torque than any other entry-level engine in the compact SUV segment. It’s also one of the most fuel-efficient, as it’s paired to an eight-speed automatic gearbox that will send the engine’s power to all four wheels in most versions through the 4Motion all-wheel drive system.
With its combination of power, interior space, efficiency, and refinement, the 2018 Volkswagen is a model you’ll want to check out at Crosby Volkswagen.
