To see what we mean, we created this Volkswagen Tiguan MPG review. Discover how the vehicle’s efficiency and performance can be used to your advantage, and feel free to contact us at Faulkner Volkswagen if you have any questions.
VW Tiguan Fuel-Efficient Performance
The Volkswagen Tiguan achieves an EPA-estimated 22 city/27 highway MPG.1 This is when you get the front-wheel drive model. Opt for the available all-wheel drive (AWD) system, and the VW Tiguan will achieve an EPA-estimated 21 city/27 highway MPG.1
Either way, your vehicle will be equipped with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that’s mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with Sport mode. The engine delivers 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque—plenty of power for cruising on the city streets or highway. Plus, the transmission provides seamless shifting that can help improve both performance and efficiency.
Overall, you’ll have an automobile that’ll deliver a smooth ride and absorb road imperfections easily, giving you some peace of mind.
Volkswagen Tiguan Driving Dynamics
As we mentioned before, the Volkswagen Tiguan is available in AWD. The 4MOTION® all-wheel drive system will adapt to changing road conditions by distributing power between the front and rear wheels. This is done before wheel slip can occur, providing optimum traction and stability on even the slipperiest surfaces.
Driving Mode Selector
Additionally, the VW Tiguan offers several driver-selectable modes to help tailor your experience on the road. In fact, you can choose between these 4MOTION® modes with just the simple turn of a dial.
The driving modes that you’ll find in this SUV are:
- Snow Mode: The engine can upshift earlier and stay at a lower RPM range. This helps prevent too much power from going to the wheels too quickly, so the vehicle can stay stable.
- On-Road Mode: If you’re driving on a paved road in good weather, then this mode is great to use. It includes four different settings that help combine performance and comfort.
- Off-Road Mode: This mode can help maintain traction on more challenging surfaces. Plus, it can activate Hill Descent Control, which will maintain a safe speed when driving down a steep slope.
- Off-Road Custom: This is used within the Off-Road Mode. Here, you can set various parameters like steering and all-wheel drive to customize your off-roading travels.
