2019 Volkswagen Tiguan Review
From passenger space and cargo options to performance and amenities, the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is one well-rounded SUV. Wondering what exactly it can offer drivers in Warwick, Providence, and Coventry? That’s exactly what we set out to answer in this 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan review from Speedcraft VW.
Volkswagen Tiguan Configurations
True to its brand, the VW Tiguan is a genuine people-wagon. It offers third-row seating across the lineup, meaning seven people can fit inside this sophisticated SUV. Depending on the trim level, you and your passengers will be sitting comfortably on cloth, leatherette, or leather seats.
There’s also ample space for your cargo. Three-row models offer 33 cubic feet of cargo space with the third row folded down, or 65.7 cubic feet behind the first row. When you have passengers in all seven seats, there’s still 12 cubic feet of cargo space in the rear.
If you don’t need seven seats, you can opt for a two-row VW Tiguan and get more room for your gear. There’s an impressive 37.6 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the rear seats in this version, and you can fold those seats down for 73.5 cubic feet of total cargo volume.
When the rear seats are folded, there’s enough room inside for large items like skis and fishing gear. But what if you want to take the whole family on an outdoor adventure?
Luckily, the VW Tiguan comes standard with roof rails, making it easy to carry extra gear overhead. It can also tow 1,500 pounds when properly equipped, providing even more options for carrying large items.
Once everything is properly secured, you’ll have no trouble reaching your destination thanks to a 2.0L TSI® engine. This offers the VW Tiguan 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque, controlled with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Plus, this engine gets you an EPA-estimated 22 MPG city/29 MPG highway.* This efficiency is due to features like:
- Start/Stop system
- Budack cycle combustion
- Direct injection
While front-wheel drive is standard, 4MOTION® all-wheel drive is also available. It keeps the power to two wheels to save fuel if you’re cruising down a dry highway. As soon as you need improved performance, it automatically switches to four-wheel drive.
Designed for Convenience
Living near the water means there are times at night when fog rolls in, making it hard to see the road ahead. Luckily, fog lights with a cornering function come standard on the VW Tiguan SEL.
This model also offers a power liftgate to make loading and unloading cargo easier. Upgrade to the SEL Premium, and you can open that liftgate with a gentle swipe of the foot—perfect for when you’re carrying something. This hands-free liftgate also comes with an Easy Close feature. Walk away when you’re finished, and it will automatically close for you.
Convenience features inside the VW Tiguan include an easy-to-use infotainment system. Its touchscreen display uses a capacitive-touch sensor, which is the same technology your smartphone or tablet uses. This means it can handle gesture controls, like pinch-zoom and swiping. Most vehicle touchscreens use the simpler resistive technology, making them harder to navigate.
