2018 Tiguan Offers More Spacious Interior

Volkswagen took the opportunity at the recent Detroit Auto Show to unveil an all new 2018 Tiguan, a mid-size SUV that now offers more room to meet the needs of American consumers. “The new Tiguan demonstrates how we plan to give American customers the usability and versatility they demand without sacrificing style or Volkswagen’s trademark driving dynamics,” according to VW North American region CEO Hinrich J. Woebcken. “Every detail of the Tiguan has been thoughtfully engineered for our U.S. customers to maximize space and convenience, while retaining its performance, agility, and value. We plan to price Tiguan very competitively with other compact SUVs.” Stay in touch with Chapman VW Tucson to see when the new Volkswagen Tiguan will be ready for a test drive.

Sparkling Design and Refreshed Interior Equal Sophistication

With the new Tiguan based on the VW Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) architecture, VW was able to stretch the wheelbase out 10 inches longer than the current model. The result is not only 57 percent more cargo capacity, but much more legroom for passengers. The MQB design delivers a lower stance with a wider, more aggressive look. Move inside and you’ll see a premium look with available features such as the VW Digital Cockpit and an infotainment system that’s second to none. An eight-way power driver seat, heated front seats and widely configurable second and third row of seating add to the versatility of the new Tiguan.

Driver Assistance Tech Keeps Everyone Safe

VW’s superior suite of driver assistance technology helps make the new Tiguan one of the safest SUVs on the road. Some standard and optional features include adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring and lane departure warning. An automatic post-collision braking system is exclusive to the Tiguan and helps minimize damage after a wreck occurs.

Tiguan Powered by Turbocharged Engine

The new Volkswagen Tiguan receives a refreshed version of the VW 2.0L turbocharged direct injection TSI engine that produces 184 horsepower. The front-wheel drive Tiguan is the standard model, but an optional 4Motion  all-wheel-drive system has different modes to make your driving experience more enjoyable and give the driver more control. Choose from Normal, Snow, Off-Road and Off-Road individual depending on your mood and road conditions.

Car and Driver magazine editors have driven the new Tiguan over a rough course and say it “could accelerate energetically with eminent obedience and unwavering stability, even over rough pavement.” Take the new Tiguan for a test drive yourself when it comes to Chapman VW Tucson later this year.

This is the Car That Smiles Back

The VW Beetle didn’t get the name “Love Bug” for nothing. From its connections to the free spirit movement of the 1960s and 70s to the fun, modern commuter you can buy today, the Volkswagen Beetle has been putting a smile on the faces of America for more than half-a-century. Although the old Bug was an inexpensive, reliable form of transportation for hippies and free thinkers alike, there were few creature comforts aside from an AM radio. Today’s Beetle is still dependable and fun, but is filled with a wealth of technological gizmos that will make your smile just a bit wider. Check out the Beetle inventory at Chapman VW Tucson today and take one for a test drive.

Features Moonglow Never Even Thought About

Chances are you wouldn’t have to look far back in the ‘60s to find someone named Moonglow wearing tie dye and driving a Bug. Moonglow would now be a grandparent who would love features like heated power side mirrors, a panoramic sunroof, Bi-Xenon headlamps and LED taillights. Moonglow, “Moonie” for short, would also be grooving on the new Beetle’s turbocharged engine and the soft-top convertible that goes from close to open with the touch of a finger. Heated front seats, touchscreen soundsystem and navigation would also blow Moonie’s mind. Safety features such as blind spot monitoring and the VW Car-Net telemetrics system that puts you in touch with an operator during an emergency are also things that weren’t even dreamed about 50 years ago.

Special Editions Recapture Old Magic

Taking the Bug to the beach meant a fun time was about to be has by all, with music, a bonfire and dance. The new Beetle Dune recaptures some of that magic with a cool aggressive stance, rear spoiler and Canyon alloy wheels. This take on the Baja Bug has all the modern features of other V-dubs, but with increased ground clearance so you skim over the speed bumps with ease. The Denim Beetle hearkens back to a time when blue jeans were the only thing anyone wore. The all-new #PinkBeetle (yes, the hashtag is part of the name) is just a fun, fresh look with Fuschia metallic paint and Pink Club cloth seatings. Get in touch with the pros at Chapman VW Tucson to see when you can get your hands on any of the special edition Beetles.

Fun Never Dies When You’re Driving a Beetle

With its 170-horsepower engine giving you all the power you need and the premium sound system cranking up the tunes, you’ll re-live the glory days as the owner of a new VW Beetle. There are plenty of unique colors, nickname badging and other accessories to make your new Bug a reflection of your personal lifestyle.
