2018 VW Tiguan: The Compact SUV Grows Up
You have to hand it to Volkswagen. When they said they were going to redesign the Tiguan compact sport utility vehicle for the 2018 model year, they weren’t bluffing. This vehicle has grown in size, has a new power plant and includes even more standard and available technology. It’s a bold move increasing the size on the 2018 Tiguan given the market’s current penchant for more compact sized crossovers, but the vehicle pulls it off flawlessly.
Yes, it’s bigger than before. The 2018 VW Tiguan is now an amazing eleven inches longer than the outgoing model. It’s also four inches longer than the competition vehicle offered by Honda. What did they do with those extra inches? We’re glad you asked.
Volkswagen used the increased length on the 2018 Tiguan to provide a third row seating option. You read that correctly. This is a compact crossover with third row seating. Impressed? We thought you might be.
What’s even more impressive is all the additional features that the factory has packed inside the 2018 Tiguan. The highly popular Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functions are standard across all trim levels of the vehicle. Speaking of trim levels, there are four to choose from: S, SE, SEL and SEL Premium. In addition, Volkswagen’s innovative 4MOTION® four wheel drive system is available across all these trims.
Here’s the best news of all: the 2018 Tiguan is in stock and on sale at Ventura Volkswagen. We have an amazing selection of new VW Tiguan models to choose from in a variety of trims and paint colors.
