Can your 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan tow your boat? Short answer? Maybe. It really depends on what kind of boat you have. The 2019 Tiguan has a max towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. Let’s take a closer look at what this means for you.

As we’ve said, the 2019 VW Tiguan has a max towing capacity of 1,500 lbs. So, if you are looking for your next powerful SUV that can tow your pontoon boat, you might not actually want the Tiguan. However, if you are looking for something to tow a trailer with a non-motorized boat, small popup camper, or other light recreational vehicles, then the Tiguan is a great match.

How powerful is the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan?

It has a 2.0L inline four-cylinder 16V turbocharged/intercooled TSI engine. This means you’ll have 184 horsepower and 221 lb.-ft. of torque. So, the Tiguan has an admirable amount of power to tow lighter items, but not enough power for heavier items like a motorized boat.
