A host of improvements for the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan offers a host of improvements both inside and out. It has a new engine, a more versatile interior, a more spacious cargo area, and more advanced safety and connectivity features. It also features a brand new design which is both elegant and refined. In other words, it now has everything you could ever want both as a driver, and as a family.
Under the hood of the new Tiguan is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. In terms of torque, no standard engine in the Tiguan’s segment even comes close.

The new 2018 Tiguan is built on an extended wheelbase, and its overall length has increased by 268 mm. That means it’s even possible to add a third row of seats that allows you to transport up to 7 passengers. It’s hard to ask for more from a compact sport utility vehicle.
