The 2018 Tiguan utilizes Volkswagen's award-winning MQB architecture, which allows for a wider and lower stance than the previous model. The Tiguan’s expanded dimensions give it one of the longest footprints in the segment, although it still remains nimble enough to excel in urban driving. The combination of this with sharper character lines and the vehicle’s LED lighting give the new Tiguan a striking new look. The exterior design of Tiguan also emphasizes ruggedness, with a 3-degree departure angle and 7.9 inches of ground clearance, along with standard roof rails.

Under the hood of the 2018 Tiguan is the most advanced version ever of Volkswagen’s EA888 four-cylinder engine. The turbocharged and direct-injection powerplant uses an innovative modification to the conventional four-stroke cycle to offer an improved combination of power, efficiency and responsiveness, delivering an impressive 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque, as well as a respectable highway fuel economy of 27 mpg. Also, traversing challenging terrains is made easy with the Tiguan's available 4Motion all-wheel drive, which is activated before wheelspin occurs to help eliminate traction losses. The 4Motion system also features Active Control, which allows the driver to select specific vehicle profiles based on driving conditions.
Inside the cabin, the 2018 Tiguan has a competitive advantage over other vehicles in the compact SUV segment with its impressive versatility. In front-wheel-drive Tiguan models, three rows of seating are standard, including a second-row bench that can recline, slide seven inches fore and aft, fold down, and be split 40/20/40. The 50/50 split third-row provides seating for two, and also folds down. When configured with Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive technology, the 2018 Tiguan comes standard with two rows and a third row is optional. Also, in the cargo area, tie-down hooks help keep things in place and a 12-volt outlet is included.
