SUMMIT, N.J., July 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Crossover vehicles are some of the most popular models on the road due to their efficiency and easy handling. One of the latest automotive trends is the size growth of compact crossovers because drivers want more versatility for their growing families and busy lifestyle. Volkswagen took this growing trend into account when it redesigned the 2018 edition of the Tiguan crossover. 

For 2018, the Volkswagen Tiguan grew by more than ten inches, which allows the crossover to carry a third row of seats (available for front-wheel drive models only). The cargo space also increased to 12.0 cubic feet behind the third row of seats, 33.0 cubic feet behind the second row and 65.7 cubic feet behind the first row. Models outfitted with two rows of seats have a cargo space measuring 37.6 cubic feet behind the second row and 73.5 cubic feet behind the first row. 

In addition to the increased dimensions, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is outfitted with a new engine to increase fuel efficiency. Under the hood of the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is a 2.0-liter TSI four-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 221 lb.-ft. of torque. This combination of power allows the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan to attain an estimated fuel economy of 22 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. 

The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan has arrived at Douglas Volkswagen in time for the new school year, and it is a viable choice for growing families who need extra seats and space for educational needs and after-school activities.
