The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is a completely redesigned version of the automaker’s first compact SUV. The Tiguan now rides on the same MQB platform that underpins many other models in the VW line-up.
Some of the notable improvements made to the Tiguan for 2018 include the addition of a third row seat, a larger interior and longer shape, and significantly improved cargo space. The VW Tiguan also adds updated active safety equipment alongside a much more modern infotainment system.
Motivating the Volkswagen Tiguan is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that puts out 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. Matched with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Tiguan offers 27-mpg on the highway, and can be ordered with the option of all-wheel drive.
