Finally, the Company pulled its curtain on the much-awaited posh looking crossover, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan. An elegantly designed upmarket vehicle, the 2018 VW Tiguan is an indubitable crossover to take on with its premium rivals like Audi Q3 and Nissan Qashqai. A big car in its segment will have both petrol and diesel variants. A wide range of options and trim levels offering both front-wheel-drive and off road all-wheel drive variants are available to suit your budget. Since its entry in 2007, the Volkswagen Tiguan has been a culled crossover among families. Here’s what the new 2018 VW Tiguan has to offer:
2018 VW Tiguan – Premium Design:
The plenty of sharp lines and premium looking design elements boosts up its chances to compete again with other premium crossovers. The new generation 2018 model looks bigger with its 7.4 inches’ wheelbase and a 10.7 inches increase in overall length. Its headroom has been reduced a couple of inches in order to match up with the broader new design.
The premium quality plastic dashboard and neatly designed seating styles are just one step behind high-end crossovers. The prominent 12.3 inches’ active info display is a notable feature but lacks a sat-nav which can be installed as an option. Its tough interior and the build quality of the gadgets makes it feel more safe and comfortable especially when traveling with our loved ones.
2018 VW Tiguan – Economic Engine:
The 2.0-liter diesel engine is the best choice when it comes to everyday usage. This engine is capable of producing 200 HP and 207 lb-ft of torque. As for EPA rating, the new model will have city/highway fuel economy: 20/24 mpg (FWD & AWD). This will include a 6-speed automatic transmission that has a manual shift and sports modes. The Tiguan’s towing capacity is rated at 2,200 pounds.
Four Wheel Drive:
The 4MOTION AWD system with a DSG automatic gearbox system can be added at extra cost, sadly the upgrade is available only with mid and high-end trims. The basic trims are rolled out with front-wheel-drive as a standard.
2018 VW Tiguan – Final Statment:
The longer body, extended legroom and minimal yet crisp looking design packed with adequate power may draw the crowd to VW showrooms. Predicting the price tag to be anywhere from $26,000 for the standard trims and $40,000 for the high ends. The supersized crossover is expected to take over the market anywhere in the second half of 2017. Overall, the all-new 2018 VW Tiguan is a firm rider with a fine blend of luxury, performance and unmatched fuel economy.
