What’s new for the 2018 VW Tiguan?

If you love SUVs and you love VW, then you may be curious to know what changes are coming to the 2018 Tiguan. The answer is that there will be many changes as this is an all-new vehicle. But let’s get to the heart of the issue and see what’s new for the 2018 VW Tiguan.

What’s different about the 2018 Tiguan?

If you want to know what’s new for the 2018 VW Tiguan, then the answer is pretty much everything. The 2018 Tiguan has been redesigned from the ground up and it’s based on a whole new architecture called the Modular Transverse Matrix or (MQB).

If you have been in the know, then you may recognize this as the same architecture that the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas will be employing when it makes its way to dealerships in just a few short months.


2017 VW Tiguan Features and Options


Does the 2018 Tiguan have a third row?

That new architecture that we talked about, will be making the 2018 Tiguan longer than its predecessor. That extra length means that this Tiguan will be able to accommodate a third row. In fact, the third row is available across the entire 2018 Tiguan lineup. Some trim levels have it as an available option, whereas others include that third row standard.

How much longer is the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan exactly? It’s a total of 10.7 inches longer than the current Tiguan. Not only does this allow the VW SUV to have a spacious third row, but it also makes for an increase of cargo space of up to 57 percent.

Does the 2018 Tiguan feature all-wheel drive?

Of course, the 2018 Tiguan will have an option for all-wheel drive. Volkswagen has made a strong commitment to the SUV and crossover segment, and they will continue to support it with the 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.

All-wheel drive will be optional on the 2018 Tiguan, but should buyers choose a Tiguan model with 4MOTION, then they will also have Active Control with four selectable driving modes. This way you can drive your Tiguan SUV the way that you want to.
