The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Is All About More Space and Versatility
The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan has finally arrived after having been introduced in Europe last year. It has since been making the rounds of the various auto shows in North America. The Tiguan has always stood out in its segment thanks to its German-engineered performance and efficiency, but also its mature and elegant design.
For 2018, Volkswagen brings all of that back while also adding even more features and things to love about the Tiguan.
An Extended Wheelbase Means More Space for the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
There are two versions of the Volkswagen Tiguan offered in Europe, but Canadian buyers will only get the extended-wheelbase version. That means that owners will get 272 mm more wheelbase in this model than in the previous generation. That translates to more room to work with inside VW’s compact SUV.
There is so much space inside the new Tiguan that Volkswagen even offers a third row of seats which means you can transport up to 7 passengers in the 2018 Tiguan. You also have all of the cargo space you could ever need, and plenty of leg and head room for all of your passengers.
That said, there’s a lot more besides space inside the 2018 Tiguan. Depending on the model, you can get features like Apple Carplay and Android Auto. There’s a panoramic sunroof, a power tailgate, and a heated steering wheel. The Tiguan also features a wide range of active safety systems that include blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert and emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning and prevention.
That’s impressive for a compact SUV that starts at $28,925.
A Powerful Engine and a Dynamic Drive in the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is powered by a single engine at the moment, but its performance and efficiency specs will meet the need of every type of buyer.
Its 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine develops 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque which means you’ll always have plenty of power on tap. An 8-speed automatic means that you enjoy both smooth performance and impressive fuel economy. Out on the road, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan always makes you feel like you’re in complete control and safe, while also being a blast to drive on an open and winding road.
