 What’s New for the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan?

Volkswagen has completely updated the popular Tiguan SUV. The long wheelbase has grown by 10.6 inches. The new size beats the Honda CR-V by four inches and the Chevy Equinox by two. That’s room you’ll notice in the cabin and when you load up for a trip. The cargo capacity has grown by 58 percent, and the standard hold now boasts more than 37 cu.ft. The second row has significantly more legroom, and, an available third row is offered for those who need more seats. Underneath those changes, VW has employed its intelligent MQB architecture. This provides a stiffer chassis for better handling. To handle the bigger size, the redesigned turbo picked up 14 lb.-ft. for a total of 221 lb.-ft. of torque. This thrust propels the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan forward even when it is full of family members and their gear. It won’t shrink from a mountain challenge or a simple highway sprint into traffic. The intelligent turbo engine is mated to a helpful eight-speed automatic transmission. You can utilize stop-start to save fuel in city driving, but, unlike most of these systems, it is possible for the driver to turn off the system when it isn’t convenient. VW’s 4motion Active Control is part of its all-wheel drive system. Drivers can select a mode, including snow, offroad and custom off-road settings. For those who want a little adventure, the Tiguan with all-wheel drive is definitely ready for the challenge.

VW has really stepped up its basic Tiguan package. Every edition has a rearview camera, an essential parking device for a large SUV. The center console touchscreen is a large 8-inch display. App-Connect comes with Android Auto, MirrorLink, and Apple CarPlay. Drivers will like the available 12.3 digital dashboard. The other big news is the inclusion of automatic post-collision braking. VW is the only carmaker to offer this important standard. The post-collision brake intervenes after the first impact to help prevent a secondary crash. VW is also one of the few automakers to offer automatic braking with its rear traffic alert. It also applies a rear autobrake to its park distance control features. The front assist feature includes a pedestrian monitor. Ready to stop for you, adaptive cruise control works with the driver. So does lane assist, which may act to straighten the SUV in its lane. Helping the driver see more, there is a bird’s eye camera system and a blind spot monitor.
