Either way, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan has many standout qualities—but does it meet your needs best?
We know that’s a lot of questions at once, but Principle Volkswagen is here to put your shopping adventures at ease with our 2018 VW Tiguan review. In it, you’ll find out exactly what this crossover offers, so you can decide if it’s the perfect ride for you!
2018 VW Tiguan: Lots of Interior Options
The 2018 VW Tiguan comes standard with seating for up to seven people across three rows. You’ll find first- and second-row seats supportive and spacious for adults, with legroom measuring 40.2 and 36.5 inches, respectively. The third row, with 27.9 inches of legroom, is a solid fit for small kids.
You can also find the VW Tiguan available with just two rows of seats and space for five people. With the two-row configuration, second-row legroom grows to 38.7 inches, giving occupants an even roomier ride. And cargo space in the two-row Tiguan is truly expansive, with 73.5 cubic feet when the second-row seats are folded. You’ll have space to store camping gear, furniture, and more!
Test drivers have found the 2018 VW Tiguan smooth and responsive on paved road surfaces. This SUV can drive well off-road, too. When you drive in Off-Road Mode, you’ll get extra help keeping traction on more challenging surfaces. And, if you find yourself driving downhill, it can activate Hill Descent Control to keep you at a safe speed.
Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.0L TSI® I-4 engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, good for 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. Whether you’re looking for a quick start in stop-and-go traffic or you need to accelerate to highway speeds, the Tiguan’s impressive powertrain is up to the task.
Technology in the 2018 Tiguan
User-friendly tech features are a staple of the 2018 Tiguan, and it all starts with the infotainment system. You’ll get a 6.5-inch touchscreen standard, but the available 8-inch screen offers even more features, like Navigation, for turn-by-turn directions to your destination. And, the larger screen makes it easier to read maps when you’re on the go.
The available 12.3-inch digital cockpit is a breakthrough in terms of convenience. You can display all kinds of information, from audio to navigation, directly on the digital panel, so your eyes never have to wander too far from the road. The cockpit can store up to four driver profiles, remembering the personal settings of your whole household!
