Exterior and Performance

The engine room houses a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine to power the 2018 VW Tiguan. The inline four-cylinder (I4) engine generates a cool 184 HP and an impressive 221 lb-ft of torque. The drivetrain hitches on an eight-speed automatic transmission which utilizes the Tiptronic shifter and the result is a simulation of manual shifting of gears, and, at the same time, a Sports Mode that delivers a tighter and firmer driving feel. The Volkswagen group manufacture the drivetrain in a standard front-wheel drive drive-train, but there also exists an option for VW 4MOTION that is the all-wheel-drive version of the same vehicle for that incredible performance on roads with disruptions from ice, snow or rain.

Interior and Technology

In the past, the Tiguans usually featured two rows with a maximum occupancy of five. However, things seem all new now, with the 2018 model debuting an additional row. The additional row, consisting of duo captain seats, increases the total occupants of the VW Tiguan to seven. As a result, the auto adopts a station wagon-like design, enclosing 123.9cubic feet for the passenger space, and consequently 65.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo space whenever you fold the second row and third-row seats. If one chooses to upgrade to SE in the least, they get a leatherette finish instead of the cloth trim, while a feature of front seat heating capability is also available with this upgrade. Coming with the upgrade is also a power lumbar support as well as a 10-mode power adjustability on the driver seat. With the SEL Premium, one gets outstanding features such as leather-appointed seats, a tri position memory system with the driver's seat, and a heated steering wheel.

The standard comfort auto version of the VW 2018 model includes a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity to enable hands-free phone operation and even streaming audio. It also comes with a multipurpose display, and Car-Net Application-Connect interfaces from VW to facilitate the integration of infotainment functionalities. For the Tiguan SE upgrade of the 2018 model, one gets dual-zone automatic climate control with air filtering, remote keyless entry, and even the push-start engine button. The SEL then features remote car start as well as adaptive cruise control. With the SEL Premium, some key features include a self-dimming rearview mirror, a 12.3" high-res digital display mounted on the dashboard, and even a nine-speaker Fender premium audio system.

The 2018 release of the Tiguan comes equipped with a pair of impact airbags at the front, located in front of the front passenger and the driver and another pair of front seat-mounted airbags for side impact which should provide adequate padding in the event of a car crash. The vehicle also comes with a double roof mounted curtains flanking all rows. Additional safety features are vehicle stability control, regulation of anti-slip, anti-lock disc brakes on all wheels, with their brake force distribution and brake assist controlled electronically. An anti-theft alarm system with a vehicle immobilizer seals the deal, with the SE and SEL Premium coming with intelligent crash response system.
