Introducing the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

Welcome to the concrete jungle!

It is a tough world out there. The Valley can get real hot in the summer. The freeways are packed every day. And, don’t even look at your phone or the television at the news!


There has to be an escape from the concrete jungle. What if there was a vehicle that can set you free? How about a vehicle where you can take your family in comfort and space with good fuel economy and plenty of capability?


Introducing the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan! Coming soon to Volkswagen of Van Nuys!


I am really exciting to get the new Tiguan Long wheel base.  VW has taken one of its most popular vehicles and made it even better by adding room for 2 more passengers and giving it an all new and stunning look.  We have a lot of customers who have been waiting for this new Tiguan and we are very excited to finally have it!

– Billy Rinker - General Manager, Volkswagen Van Nuys





The all-new 2018 Tiguan is built on the MQB platform – the one that the Golf is made from. It is a proven platform that is flexible enough to create a compact SUV with three rows of seating. Therefore, the body must be contemporary, efficient and built for easy access into the cabin and cargo hold. To make people happy, Volkswagen presents a modern, straightforward look with plenty of advanced features for lighting, including standard LED daytime running lights. SEL models get full LED lighting with Adaptive Front Lighting, puddle lights underneath the power-folding side mirrors and LED taillights.


Inside the cabin is a very spacious place to drive, relax and carry your worldly goods. Up front is an advanced instrument panel featuring the available Volkswagen Digital Cockpit display. This display is customizable and flexible providing a host of information for the driver to read and follow.


Front occupants will find seating to be supportive for long journeys reducing fatigue. The second row is split 40/20/40 for flexible cargo usage, while it offers seven inches of fore-and-aft adjustment and recline for outboard seating areas. Getting the to 50/50 split third seat is easy, by flipping a lever and letting the second row seat slide forward for easier access. Fold both the second and third row seats down, and there is 73.5 cubic feet of cargo space to bring home an entire garden to plant – or, a month’s worth of groceries for most families.





All Tiguans get the latest version of the MIB II infotainment system, driven by Car-Net. While the S model gets the 6.5-inch version of the touch screen, all other models get the larger 8-inch version. These screens provide a clearer view of the menus, including the available navigation system.


Every Tiguan offers the available Car-Net connected services system. Buying the Security & Service package not only offers the peace of mind for reporting accidents, tracking of a stolen vehicle, maintenance and service support, but it also features a six-month trial of Verizon Telematics as the uplink to Car-Net itself. There is a new feature called Family Guardian that enables controls for the younger driver in the family to regulate speed limits and a boundary based on mileage away from home. SEL owners would also enjoy Car-Net Guide & Inform, which provides navigation-based information, sports scores, fuel prices and weather data…to name  a few. Plus, you get a three-month trial of SiriusXM Traffic which seamlessly provides real-time information on local traffic.





All 2018 Tiguans are powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. While it offers 184 horsepower, it also provides 221 pound-feet of torque – one the highest ratings in its class of any standard engine. This engine has been enhanced to provide more efficiency and improved fuel economy overall.  An all-new eight-speed automatic transmission is also standard on the 2018 Tiguan – an important piece towards improving fuel economy. A Stop/Start function is standard on all 2018 Tiguans.


Choose the available 4Motion all-wheel drive system and there is a lot of traction to cover. A driver can choose from four settings: On-Road, Snow, Off-Road and Custom Off-Road. Each setting is pre-determined for the type of traction and response needed for each condition. Furthermore, a driver can also choose a drive mode to suit one’s driving style. These drive modes include: Normal, Sport, Eco and Custom. Each mode affects engine control, transmission shifts, steering and the Adaptive Cruise Control, if equipped.




Volkswagen has been a leader in occupant and vehicle safety by earning many accolades for our lineup. The 2018 Tiguan continues this commitment to providing the best in vehicle and occupant safety by offering a suite of driver assistance features. These features include: Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring (Front Assist), Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist), front and rear Park Distance Control (ParkPilot), High Beam Control (Light Assist) and Overhead View Camera (Area View).





For the front-wheel drive 2018 Tiguan S model, the base price is $25,345. There are three other trim levels to choose from: SE, SEL and SEL Premium. The back this vehicle up, there is the six-year/72,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty – America’s best bumper-to-bumper transferrable SUV warranty.
