2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

The all-new 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan has been completely redesigned for the 2018 model year. And when Volkswagen says redesign, they mean function as well as form. The new Tiguan is over 10 inches longer than its 2017 counterpart, so there’s more room for everyone to travel in style. Volkswagen has given it plenty of cargo room, increasing the cargo capacity of the 5-passenger model by over 30% to 73.5 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. Plus, you don’t need to lift a finger when you want to open the available Hands free Easy Open and Easy Close Liftgate on your Tiguan. With key in pocket, kick your foot under the rear bumper to unlock and open the trunk.

Comfortable doesn’t mean dull when behind the wheel of the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan. Smooth and responsive on paved roads, the Tiguan remains commanding and confident even if the road surface becomes more challenging. As conditions change, available 4MOTION distributes power between the front and rear wheels as needed to help optimize traction and stability. So, don’t let the good looks fool you. The inside may be VIP, but under the hood, it’s all SUV. With capability to go up, down, over, or around as needed.
