Hoping to spur buyer interest in its new SUV models, Volkswagen has announced that its 2018 Atlas and 2018 Tiguan will arrive in dealers later this year covered by the industry’s best manufacturer limited warranty. Both will feature 6-year/72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper coverage that’s transferrable beyond the original purchaser.

“We specifically designed and built the all-new Atlas and Tiguan for American customers. This warranty further addresses the needs of American buyers head-on,” said Hinrich J. Woebcken, President and Chief Executive Officer of Volkswagen Group of America. “We’re confident in the reliability and workmanship of these SUVs, and we want our customers to be confident in their purchase. We believe this warranty will lead to reduced cost of ownership for Volkswagen owners.”

Woebcken noted that key Atlas rivals like the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, Nissan Pathfinder and Toyota Highlander as well as Tiguan foes like the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 offer only a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain coverage. Admitting that Hyundai and Kia now feature a 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty and 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain coverage, he pointed out their limited powertrain protection is not transferrable  on any vehicle outside of the 5-year/60,000-mile window.
