It’s essentially a fact at this point that Americans love crossovers and SUVs. With that in mind, Volkswagen has decided to offer Americans a larger crossover to select from beyond that of the all-new Atlas. At this year’s Detroit Auto Show the German automaker is pulling the wraps off the 2018 Tiguan, which now sports three rows.
To be clear, in global markets there will remain two different Tiguans. There will be the base Tiguan, which sports seating for five and then the Tiguan AllSpace, which is the only Tiguan we’ll be getting in America. The larger version of the Tiguan is 10.7-inches longer than today’s Tiguan and features three rows of seating.
For the American market the new Tiguan will be powered be VW’s 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four with 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel-drive will be standard on this vehicle that’s based on VW’s MQB architecture while 4Motion all-wheel-drive will be optional.
Expect pricing and other details closer to the new Tiguan’s launch.
