While some compact SUVs are a bit cramped and lack the latest technology, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is not one of them. Here is why the VW Tiguan is an excellent crossover for families.
Spacious for people and possessions
The standard version of the 2018 VW Tiguan boasts three rows that can accommodate up to seven people. All-wheel drive versions of the model come standard with two rows, to transport up to five people; however, a three-row option is available.
The five-passenger models boast a maximum cargo volume of 73.5 cubic feet when you fold the second-row seats flat. The seven-passenger version of the Tiguan yields up to 65.7 cubic feet, which is sufficient for stowing all of your family’s luggage.
High-tech amenities to engage passengers
A variety of infotainment options translate to an informed and delightful drive. VW Car-Net® App-Connect enables you to sync your phone with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink®, so you can access playlists and apps through the SUV’s touch screen. An available Fender® Premium Audio System supplies a 480-watt amplifier and nine speakers to elevate your listening experience. Choose the SEL trim or higher to utilize an 8-inch touch screen navigation system. This feature provides route guidance with turn-by-turn directions to help you get to your destination via the shortest path.
Superior safety features to ease your mind
The 2018 VW Tiguan utilizes both passive and active safety to boost your confidence on each journey. Volkswagen has incorporated a safety cage with front and rear crumple zones in the Tiguan to absorb the impact of a crash. The Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS) automatically shuts off the fuel pump, activates hazard lights and unlocks the doors in the event of an impact.
Driver-assist features are available on select trims. Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking join forces with Pedestrian Monitoring to warn the driver of obstacles ahead. Rear Traffic Alert will help you back out of a garage or parking space with more awareness of your surroundings. Blind Spot Monitor lends extra support to the driver when shifting lanes or merging onto a road.
If you’re in the market for a sophisticated family-hauler, look no further than the well-rounded 2018 VW Tiguan.
