While in the past compact crossover SUVs may have banked on their maneuverability and attractive styling, modern models offer so much more. The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is a striking example of a compact SUV that offers a sizeable cargo space, excellent passenger comfort, and all while striking a satisfying balance between driving engagement and a great fuel-efficiency footprint. With a fresh style and upgraded technology for the new model year, the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan in Topeka KS promises to satisfy many driver needs.
Available in S, SE, SEL and SEL Premium trim levels, the all-new 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan has plenty of new advantages under its belt. Available with seating for five to seven passengers, the new Tiguan can offer up to 12 cubic feet of cargo space even when equipped with a third row. In two-row models with all the seats folded down, drivers can enjoy a practical 73.5 cubic feet of cargo capacity. New technology advantages, like a new standard 6.5-inch touchscreen display, and an available 8-inch display, also increase comfort and options.
In addition to an increase of 17.4 cubic feet of maximum cargo space when compared to previous years, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan also offers a lower tailgate height for easier loading and unloading. Some models are also available with a towing hitch and up to 1,500 pounds of towing capability when properly equipped.
While the standard 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan comes with responsive front-wheel drive, 4Motion all-wheel drive with the Active Control feature is also available. This responsive all-wheel drive system comes with On-Road, Snow, Off-road and Custom Off-road settings so drivers can enjoy perfect traction in any situation.
Some of the driver assistance safety features that are available on the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan include Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warnings, Park Pilot parking assistance and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring.
Models of the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan in Topeka KS will come with an updated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain should be able to deliver 184 horsepower and up to 221 pound-feet of torque. All models will come standard with a Start/Stop system which can optimize the fuel efficiency of this attractive compact SUV. With this fuel-sipping design, the front-wheel drive 2018 Tiguan should be able to offer up to 22 mpg in city driving and 27 mpg on the highway, according to current EPA fuel economy estimates. This means plenty of driving without needing to stop to fill up the tank.
