American Practicality Meets European Drivability
Once one of the smallest compact SUVs, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is now spacious, refined and tech-friendly while providing European handling and driving feel. Roomy first and second rows offer ample room, plus there's also a when-you-absolutely-need-it third row. Appealing perks like the best bumper-to-bumper warranty in the segment and extensive driver-assist and safety technology make the Tiguan a smart, sporty alternative.
"The Tiguan’s excellent steering and pedal response -- expected attributes of any VW -- contribute to an overall driving feel that’s among the best in the segment. Highway ride is firmer than that of some other small SUVs, but excellent seats, a quiet cabin and superior steering feel qualify the new Tiguan as an excellent long-haul companion."
