2018 VW Tiguan Performance Specs
The 2018 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 mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission that has smooth shifting.

Volkswagen Tiguan Interior Specs
If you have a large family or are the designated carpool driver, then the VW Tiguan may be the SUV for you. That’s because it can seat up to seven among three rows. If you never carry that many passengers, then the 5-seat model would work well.
If you opt for the 5-seater, then you’ll get the following interior dimensions:
- Front headroom/legroom: 39.6 inches/40.2 inches
- Rear headroom/legroom: 39.1 inches/36.5 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 two rows that you’d get in the above version. However, with the addition of the third row, passenger volume bumps up to 123.9 cubic feet.
In addition, there’s plenty of cargo room in either model. With the three rows, you’ll get up to 65.7 cubic feet. And with the two rows, you’ll have up to 73.5 cubic feet of cargo space to work with.
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.
