2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Review
If you’re in search of your next family-friendly SUV, you’ve come to the right place! Let us introduce you to the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan, the answer to all your SUV needs. Innovative, great towing, spacious, and safe, the Tiguan will change the way you look at driving a family vehicle.

2018 Tiguan Technology
From the outside, the 2018 Tiguan is deceiving in its interior roominess. You’ll find not just comfortable seating, but plenty of space—especially for a three-row SUV. Your second-row passengers will appreciate the 35.6 inches of legroom to stretch out, which means soccer game carpools will be no problem.
Speaking of soccer games, you’ll want to load in everyone’s equipment. That’s no problem with the Tiguan. You already get 12 ft3 of space behind the third row; fold the seats down, and you’ll open to 33 ft3 of space, and still have room for five passengers.
In terms of technology, the VW Tiguan comes with a laundry list of standard features. You’ll get a 6.5-inch touchscreen, along with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, and a USB port, so you’ll have plenty of options to stay connected. An infotainment system with navigation is available, as well.
Tiguan Engine Power and Performance
Who said a family-friendly ride couldn’t have some extra boost? The 2018 Tiguan offers impressive power, with a 2.0L turbocharged engine that offers 184 horsepower, so you’ll be charged from one destination to the next.
And with impressive power comes even better fuel economy. The Volkswagen Tiguan has an EPA-estimated 22 city/27 highway MPG, so you won’t be stopping at the pump to refuel on the way to your next vacation spot.
One of the best features about the new Volkswagen SUV is its versatility in terms of where it can take you. Thanks to the available 4MOTION® all-wheel drive, you can maximize traction and stability by choosing from one of four modes: Snow Mode, On-Road Mode, Off-Road Mode, and Off-Road Custom.
