2018 VW Tiguan – Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission

Even though a model similar to 2018 VW Tiguan has already announced in Sweden and other European northern countries, a completely new version has been shown at last Detroit Car Show with all new details in term of design and engine option. After all, a new generation of Tiguan had already been seen in Frankfurt 2015, so everything we see now is upgraded in the last, well-known model.


One is for sure, a new 2018 VW Tiguan will have a longer wheelbase and now has 185.2 inches in length so there is more space for the third row of seats. Made on popular VW MQB platform, it looks like those old models from Volkswagen from the 80’s. The front end is a little old fashioned, with sharp edges and not designed as we used to see on modern US vehicles. But his major feature is its size, so even the buyers from the US will be satisfied which is manufacturer’s main target group. But, his size is not that visible at first glance, because Tiguan is more like a compact sedan than SUV vehicle. It is maybe because of the front end, which is similar to old models from Volkswagen and which represent going back to the old design.


As the outside of the 2018 VW Tiguan already seen and known, and survived critics and commendations, the inside of it is still unknown, at least the package which manufacturer prepared for us. There is a third row of 40/20/40 splits seats and more cargo space; although the size of it is not clear bearing in mind that the third row of seats is built in this model for the first time. The German manufacturer knows that US buyers love and expect large and comfort car, so we have no reason to expect less than that. All other equipment is not available.


The engine in 2018 VW Tiguan is 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged with Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission. It will be capable of producing 183 horsepower and 221-pound feet of torque, although there will be a model for Asian market with 150 horsepower of strength.
