Long-wheelbase Tiguan Debuts at Detroit Auto Show

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.
