Inside the 2019 VW Tiguan
While the Volkswagen Tiguan is noted as a “compact” SUV, don’t let this label fool you. The interior of this spacious ride is roomy and comfortable, along with stylish and modern, allowing you to enjoy the best features a cabin can offer.
With seating for five passengers, you’ll have no issues being the carpool parent for the next soccer game or picking up a few friends for a night out. The backseat of the VW Tiguan offers ample room for passengers of all sizes to stretch out—36.5 inches to be exact!
There are also plenty of options for an extremely comfortable ride wherever you plan on going with available features like the heated front seats, 10-way power driver’s seat with power-adjustable lumbar support, and Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate control.
And with so much passenger room, you won’t have to forego cargo space. The inside offers an impressive 33 cubic feet of space behind the second row; and if that’s not enough, fold the backseat down and open up to a massive 65.7 cubic feet of space to store… Well, almost anything!
Power & Performance in the VW Tiguan
If you’re opting for a family-friendly ride, that doesn’t mean you’re not looking for some power. Under the hood of the 2019 VW Tiguan, you’ll find a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque.
Plus, you’ll get optimum fuel economy ratings, with an EPA-estimated 22/29 MPG city/highway1. So, whether you’re driving to your next vacation spot or just running some errands, you’ll be saving both time and money at the pump.
And when it comes to taking on any terrain, it is well-prepared. The available 4MOTION® all-wheel drive offers four driving modes: Snow, On-Road, Off-Road, and Off-Road Custom. So, no matter where the road takes you, the VW Tiguan will have no problem getting there.
Towing Capacity of the Volkswagen Tiguan
With that power under the hood, it is no surprise the 2019 VW Tiguan has the strength to pull along a good amount of weight. You can tow up to 1,500 pounds, which means you’ll be able to hitch up your trailer or even your boat depending on its size.
Add this to the cargo capacity inside this vehicle that we highlighted, and you’ll have plenty of versatility when it comes to carrying cargo of all shapes and sizes.
VW Tiguan Safety Technology
Looking for a vehicle that’s suitable for the whole family means also checking out the features that will keep you and your loved ones safe on the road. Fortunately, the 2019 VW Tiguan checks out in this category, as well, offering features such as:
- Automatic Post-Collision Braking System
- Blind Spot Monitor
- Overhead View Camera
- Pedestrian Monitoring
- And more!
Additionally, the available VW Car-Net® Security & Service feature will offer you information such as your last parked location or emergency calling, and will even tell you if you’ve left the sunroof open or doors unlocked.
A Personalized Ride
With the technology inside the VW Tiguan, you can customize your vehicle to fully enjoy your drive. Starting with your entertainment, connect your smartphone to the touchscreen display and use a variety of its functions.
With Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, you can gain turn-by-turn directions with the maps on your phone, make calls or send texts, and stream your favorite music or podcasts while driving.
Beyond being able to enjoy your personal entertainment and connection to your device, the available Driver Personalization also lets the vehicle automatically set a variety of other settings in the car to your liking. This will be able to adjust your climate control system, seat position, and more to your previously set liking when you first get into the car.
