Colorful Style: The Tiguan Has the Edge
If you’re looking for colors and styles rarely seen on a typical crossover SUV, then the 2018 Tiguan is the right choice for you. While the Tucson sports its own array of colors, it doesn’t come close to the unique and exciting colors found on the Tiguan, including Habanero Orange Metallic, Dark Moss Green, Cardinal Red, and more. Redesigned headlights and a strong external appearance round out the competitive edge of the 2018 Tiguan when it comes to good looks.
Comfortable Interior: Drive Luxuriously with Tiguan
With a completely redesigned interior cabin, the 2018 Tiguan once again takes the lead with its spacious, comfortable, and high-tech interior sporting the latest features, including V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces as standard, a panoramic sunroof with ambient lighting, and dual-zone climate control technology among many others.
You’ll also find a leather-wrapped steering wheel and Vienna leather seating surfaces as an available upgrade for drivers who want even more luxury and comfort. Don’t forget convenience tech like Hands Free Easy Open and Close Liftgate, seat release levers for the cargo area, and 73.5 cubic feet of cargo space when the rear seats are folded.
Going Head-to-Head on Performance
The Tiguan doesn’t sacrifice performance for comfort. While the Tucson comes equipped with a 164-hp 2.0L GDI DOHC 4-cylinder engine, that’s nothing compared to the 2.0L TSI engine of the new Tiguan, which delivers 184 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque while still saving you money at the gas pump with 27 mpg on the highway** and 22 mpg in the city**. The Tiguan also comes equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission with Sport mode as well as 4MOTION all-wheel drive with four driving modes: Snow, On-Road, Off-Road, and Off-Road Custom.
