Herndon, VA (September 18, 2017) 

Volkswagen of America, Inc. is pleased to announce that has named the all-new 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan the "Best Compact SUV of 2017."

"The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan impressed the judges with its roominess and value," said Jennifer Newman, Editor-in-Chief, "The cargo capability is top of the class, making this small SUV a huge advantage for shoppers concerned about getting the most room for the money.

The Compact SUV Challenge tested vehicles with a maximum MSRP of $35,000 including all options and destination charges. Testing took place in the Chicago suburbs, where judges drove each car on the same loop for back-to-back impressions. In addition to value and spaciousness, vehicles scored points in other areas, including as-equipped driver assistance technologies, such as forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning, lane departure warning, lane departure steering and lane-centering steering. Ease of child-safety seat installation was also evaluated and scored in each SUV.

More room for treasure.
Buried or purchased.

So much design, we needed a longer wheelbase.

When we say redesign, we mean function as well as form. The 2018 Tiguan is over 10 inches longer than its 2017 counterpart, so there’s more room for everyone to travel in style.

Reach points of interest. On point.

Comfortable doesn’t mean dull. Smooth and responsive on paved roads, the Tiguan remains commanding and confident even if the road surface becomes more challenging.

4MOTION® all-wheel drive

As conditions change, available 4MOTION distributes power between the front and rear wheels as needed to help optimize traction and stability.

“The added size for the Tiguan and a strong evolution in its exterior styling give the SUV more presence”
