VW Tiguan Performance

VW Tiguan Performance Specs

The Volkswagen Tiguan comes with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. Not only does it offer plenty of power but it’s also mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport Mode that supplies smooth shifting.

Plus, with an EPA-estimated 23 city/29 highway MPG, you can put that power to use for hours before stopping at a gas station to refuel.1

Additionally, the vehicle is available with 4MOTION® all-wheel drive to help give you more confidence on the road. It will monitor road conditions and distribute power between the front and rear wheels as needed. This is done before wheel slippage occurs, so you’ll get optimal traction on any road surface.

To configure your travels even more, you can use 4MOTION® all-wheel drive with the Active Control drive mode selector. With just the turn of a dial, choose among On-Road Mode, Off-Road Mode, Snow Mode, and Off-Road Custom Mode. So, no matter where you’re traveling, rest assured the VW Tiguan will provide a comfortably stable ride.

VW Tiguan Safety Specs

Stability comes in the form of useful and standard safety systems, such as Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert, and Pedestrian Monitoring—some of which do not come standard in other comparable vehicles.

VW Tiguan Exterior

VW Tiguan Exterior Specs & Design

Since the Volkswagen Tiguan is a compact SUV, it easily maneuvers around city streets or on busy highways. This is evident from the following exterior dimensions:

  • Length: 185.1 inches
  • Width: 72.4 inches
  • Height: 66.3 inches
  • Wheelbase: 109.8 inches

The vehicle is also quite stylish, with a contemporary look that’s sure to turn heads. Bold character lines run from front to back, giving it a chiseled appearance. At the same time, hood contours, a distinct grille, and body color options like Atlantic Blue Metallic and Cardinal Red Metallic make the vehicle truly stand out on the road.

Volkswagen Tiguan Interior Specs

If you have a large family or you’re the designated carpool driver, then the VW Tiguan may be the SUV for you. That’s because it seats up to seven riders across three rows. If you never carry that many passengers, then the 5-seat model also works well.

If you opt for the 5-seater, then your VW Tiguan will have the following interior dimensions:

  • Front headroom/legroom: 39.6 inches/40.2 inches
  • Rear headroom/legroom: 38.9 inches/38.7 inches
  • Passenger volume: 101.1 cubic feet

If you’d rather get the 7-seater, you’ll get the same headroom and legroom in the first row as you’d get in the above version, with some slight variations in the rear two rows. However, with the second and third rows, passenger volume bumps up to 123.9 cubic feet.

For a stylish cabin to match the exterior VW style, upgrade to an all-leather designed cabin. V-Tex leatherette is an option to cover the seating surfaces, and you can add the leatherette wrapping for your steering wheel to have it all come together.

VW Tiguan Seat Specs

The Volkswagen Tiguan provides 6-way manually adjustable seats in the front row. Depending on your comfort level and visibility needs, you can adjust them as you see fit and what benefits you. As you move up the trim levels, the driver’s seat gets an upgrade with 10-way power adjustability and power-adjustable lumbar support.

You’ll be eager to turn on the available heated front seats when the thermometer starts dropping. In the highest trims, the multi-function heated steering wheel becomes an option for VW drivers, too, to extend the warmth. These trims also include Climatronic® dual-zone climate control that enables each front-seat rider to choose their own preferred temp.

VW Tiguan Cargo Specs

In addition, there’s plenty of cargo room in either model. With the three rows, you’ll get up to 65.7 cubic feet of storage. Then, with the two rows, you’ll have up to 73.5 cubic feet of cargo space to work with. To get the extra space, just fold down the 40/20/40-split folding second row that comes in both the 5- and the 7-seater models.

Plus, if your hands are full, simply utilize the available hands-free Easy Open and Easy Close liftgate. Just swipe your foot under the rear bumper, and the liftgate will open in seconds for easy loading. It also comes with remote open and close functions for your convenience.

VW Tiguan Tech Highlights

With the technology you’ll get in the VW Tiguan, you’ll want to keep right on cruising. To start, you’ll get the Composition Color touchscreen sound system that features a 6.5-inch display for viewing your apps, directions, and who’s calling you.

Along your dashboard in higher trims, you’ll find the available VW Digital Cockpit that can be outfitted with the optional Discover Media 8-inch touchscreen navigation system. This device can be operated by touch or through voice control and lets you request your directions or can turn on your audio.

While you’re given access to your smartphone apps with Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™, standard Bluetooth® also allows for audio streaming. In the higher trims, you’ll be able to tune in to your music through the Fender® Premium Audio System upgrade with nine speakers.

Other additional perks include ways to make your connectivity and smartphone work at an even higher level! When you add VW Car-Net® Hotspot, it provides Wi-Fi capabilities and connects up to four electronic devices at once. If you get the extra wireless smartphone charger, you’ll never need to know where your phone charger is because it’s located right on the console.
