Compact SUVs are very, very popular on the market today, and have been for a number of years now. This means that if you are looking for a compact SUV, you have the luxury of choosing between numerous models. Even so, there are few options available for the kind of person who enjoys driving. Compact SUVs primarily focus on space, but the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is different.
The latter is now much more spacious and versatile, but remains one of the most enjoyable models to drive in its segment. This is an SUV that behaves like a car on the road, and a relatively sporty one at that.
Much More Space in the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is no doubt much more spacious than the model it replaces. While the older generation offered less than 700 litres of space, the new Tiguan offers more than 1,000 litres. If you lower the second row of seats, more than 2,000 litres of cargo space becomes available. This makes the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan one of the most spacious compact SUVs on the market.
There is also more space for passengers in the Tiguan, as the latter is now built on an extended wheelbase. This not only means more comfort for your passengers, but also the possibility to accommodate up to seven passengers in the compact Volkswagen SUV if you opt for the third-row option.
Under the hood, the Tiguan continues to impress with its 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. No other compact SUV offers the same amount of torque. The engine is paired with a highly efficient 8-speed automatic transmission that improves the performance and fuel economy.
