A quick look at 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan reviews

September 30th, 2018 by

The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan has been completely redesigned for 2018 and comes back basically unchanged this year. We have already covered the new Volkswagen compact sport utility vehicle in detail, but now we thought we would check what’s being said about it out there.

Better, and seriously satisfying, is the ride. Extremely smooth, the 2018 Tiguan benefits from the added 185 millimetres of wheelbase. Scarred and broken roads are comfortably absorbed, yet handling is surprisingly tight given the Tiguan’s significant 1,678-kilogram curb weight.

On twisty country roads, the Tiguan stuck to the road with little body lean. The electric power steering system is quick to come off-centre, but responsive and light with moderate feedback. Braking feels strong, and road noise is well controlled but not completely unnoticeable. Visibility is very good and it’s easy to drive – Driving.ca

All new for 2018, the Tiguan is Volkswagen’s smallest SUV, but there’s nothing compact about it. It’s so much bigger than its predecessor that a third row of seats is available on front-drive models. The larger size means it’s not as fun to drive as before, but the new Tiguan is spacious inside and has tech-savvy features. A 184-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine provides adequate grunt and mates with an eight-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive – Car&Driver

The Tiguan’s cabin tech and infotainment amenities see a significant improvement for this generation.

VW’s latest Car-Net App-Connect tech is standard across the lineup, with either a 6.5-inch touchscreen for S models or a larger 8-inch display for SE or higher trim levels. Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink are standard technologies, but even without them the onboard software is super easy to use. My top SEL trim levels also add navigation to the tech party.

At the tippy-top SEL Premium trim level, the Tiguan is also gains VW’s Digital Cockpit, a 12.3-inch screen that serves as the instrument cluster, displaying traditional driving information — including speedometer and tachometer gauges — as well as more advanced functions such as a live navigation map. I especially like this feature because it allows me to control most of the infotainment without looking away from the road or taking my hands off of the steering wheel. If you’re a techie looking at a Tiguan, consider Digital Cockpit the car’s killer app – CNET
