Vehicle Profile: 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
Elegance and functionality incarnate

The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is a thoroughly outfitted compact SUV that’s equipped to provide a comfortable, reliable ride while pampering you with a plethora of modern perks.

Pleasing performance

The 2018 Tiguan is more efficient than the previous model year version — 27 mpg on the highway —  thanks to its adoption of an eight-speed automatic transmission with sport mode.* You can also shift between snow mode, on-road mode, off-road mode and off-road custom functions to achieve maximum traction and optimum handling for varying road conditions.

Safety features

Each Tiguan is crafted with a rigid safety cage as well as front and rear crumple zones that will absorb the energy of an impact. Automatic Post-Collision Braking System will ensure your vehicle comes to a full stop after an accident, to prevent further damages to the vehicle. Volkswagen has also incorporated seven stability-enhancing systems, including Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution (EBD) to enhance the model’s balance and control over different terrain.   

Driver assist perks

A rear view camera system will extend your view when backing up the SUV. Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking technology detect objects up ahead so you can avoid running into pedestrians, large obstacles and other vehicles. Blind Spot Monitor will help you shift lanes more safely, alerting you to vehicles or objects you might not have seen otherwise. 

Ample cargo space

The Tiguan comes in two different forms depending on whether you transport passengers or possessions on a daily basis. The seven-seat version of the model boasts a maximum of 65.7 cubic feet of trunk space when both the second- and third-row seats are folded down. Upgrade to the five-seat version to enjoy up to 73.5 cubic feet of cargo space when the second-row seats are collapsed.

Refined cabin

The 2018 Tiguan is technology-laden and comfortable on the inside. Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect lets you access your favorite apps while on the go. You can also tap into luxurious sound when you select the available Fender® Premium Audio System. V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces will cushion passengers from bumps encountered along the way. Available heated front seats will help keep you cozy on cold days.

Take your family-hauler to the next level when you step into the world of the 2018 Tiguan.

*22 city/27 highway mpg (2018 Tiguan 2.0L, 8-speed automatic transmission). EPA estimates. Your mileage will vary and depends on several factors, including your driving habits and vehicle condition.
