Enjoy nimbler handling with the 8-speed automatic transmission on the 2018 Tiguan
The 2018 Tiguan makes a bolder statement with its redesigned exterior
Stay more relaxed in the 2018 Tiguan with V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces, a panoramic sunroof with ambient lighting, and more.
The Tiguan sports a 2.0L TSI engine that delivers 184 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque, all which achieving an incredibly-efficient 27 mpg on the highway** and 22 mpg in the city**. You’ll also find an 8-speed automatic transmission with Sport mode on board — compare that to the Sportage’s mere 6-speed transmission. Overall, the Tiguan takes the lead in the performance department with its powerful engine, multiple driving modes, and 4MOTION all-wheel drive system that effortlessly balances power between front and rear wheels for maximum stability.
Billed as “a contemporary look that has no contemporaries,” the 2018 Tiguan is truly a sight to behold. It also features LED headlights with adaptive front-lighting systems, LED taillights, and convenience, especially a hands-free liftgate that makes transporting cargo in the back as easy as possible.
With a redesigned interior, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan delivers ambient lighting with a panoramic sunroof, and it features V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces, a leather wrapped heated steering wheel, and dual-zone automatic climate control. The Kia Sportage, on the other hand, features more of the same conventional interior features you’d expect to find on a typical Kia crossover.
