Volkswagen Tiguan: The Roomiest SUV

February 18th, 2022 by

The Volkswagen Tiguan is Volkswagen’s most popular model and consistently outsells other models significantly. This compact SUV seems anything but with its roomy interior and one of the only ones in its class that offers a third-row seat.  

The Tiguan offers a stylish design with bold, sharp lines and a broad grille. Updates to this year’s model interior create the ultimate combination of comfort and tech. Complete with a wide range of smart features, the Volkswagen Tiguan continues to be the SUV of choice for families and adventurers alike.  


The Tiguan offers a standard turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 184 horsepower and 221 pounds-feet of torque with an 8-speed transmission with standard front-wheel drive with an option for Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel drive. Although this SUV is far from fast, it more than makes up for it with a smooth ride and responsive steering and handling.  


The spacious Tiguan is a simple, elegant design with a desirable functionality that rivals many in its class. There is ample legroom, and it is the only SUV in its class designed to fit up to seven passengers with the optional third row. With the third row in use, their storage space is limited to 12 cubic feet, but you can fold down the third row and second row, which makes it a roomier SUV perfect for hauling.  

 The Tiguan comes with cloth seats as a standard fitting with heaters in the front seat and dual-zone automatic climate control that ensures every passenger is at their most comfortable. 


Volkswagen takes safety seriously, and it’s evident in the inclusion of the many smart safety measures that lets you know you’re safe whether you’re driving cross country or running errands in the city.  

The Tiguan is built with a safety cage. The front and rear crumple zone are designed to help absorb energy in the event of a crash and distribute the forces away from drivers and passengers. In the unexpected event of an accident, the Intelligent Crash Response System not only deploys airbags, but it turns off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and automatically activates the hazard lights. Taking it one step further, Volkswagen will bring your car to a stop or slow it down with the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System reducing the risk of additional collisions.  

The Tiguan comes with all the standard safety features, such as a rearview camera that helps in backing up and tire pressure monitoring systems to alert you if your tire pressure is low. The SUV is also equipped with a total of six stability-enhancing systems, such as the Electronic Brake-pressure distribution that helps maintain stopping power in a hard brake situation and the Electronic Stability Control that helps adjust the engine through and applies corrective forces to the wheels that need them.  


The Volkswagen Tiguan is a surprisingly large SUV in the small SUV segment that offers a smooth, fun ride with the ultimate safety features protecting you and your family. Perfect for someone who needs the utility of an SUV but a smaller vehicle for the city.
