From Inside/Out, Tiguan Offers Fresh Take

When the 2018 VW Tiguan arrives on the showroom floor at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale later this year, it will offer customers a completely fresh take on the SUV experience. From an athletic new style with LED lighting, a bold front grille and dual exhaust tips to the improved interior space, the Tiguan is a larger midsize SUV than consumers are used to seeing. All front-wheel drive Tiguans will come with a standard third-row seat, while the 4Motion all-wheel drive models will have the third row as an option.

More Room to Haul

Whether you’re hauling people or cargo, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is designed to meet your needs. With almost 11 more inches of wheelbase, the Tiguan has 57 percent more interior room than the current model. A 40/20/40 second row seat that slides forward and back by seven inches not only provides easy access to the third row, but offers a quick way to adjust for hauling home those large purchases. A new chassis system means the Tiguan also sits lower, meaning you won’t have to lift those heavy items as high to get them in the spacious rear hatch. Opening the hatch is also as simple as a kick, which tells the sensors your hands are full and to power up the lift gate.

New Tiguan Loaded With Power and Safety

When you test drive the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale this fall, you should notice the power available for merging onto the freeway or climbing mountain passes. That’s because VW has revamped the 2.0L turbocharged engine to deliver 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. The new 8-speed automatic transmission delivers plenty of low-end power before shifting smoothly through the gears for great fuel economy. A suite of driver assistance options will help you and your precious cargo get safely to your destination. Forward collision warning with autonomous braking not only senses an impending front-end crash, but also takes steps to avoid it should you fail to act. Pedestrian and blind spot monitoring, rear traffic alert and lane departure warning systems are other ways VW helps you avoid a wreck.

Custom Interior Built for Comfort

The new interior of the 2018 VW Tiguan is built for comfort and control. All switches are within easy ergonomic reach of the driver. An optional Volkswagen Digital Cockpit lets you configure the information you want to see displayed. Available leatherette seating, a panoramic sunroof and heated steering wheel all add to the desirability of this new addition to the SUV marketplace.

Stylish for City, Tough for Country

If you like the idea of exploring the backroads and trails of historic Arizona, but aren’t really in the market for a big truck, SUV or something that resembles a small tank, take the opportunity to head to Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale and check out the VW Alltrack. Whether you’re heading out for a night on the town or seeing what the trail to Four Peaks is all about, the Alltrack is the perfect choice. With increased ground clearance and VW’s patented 4MOTION all-wheel drive, the Alltrack is equipped to handle whatever Mother Nature can dish out. The available leatherette seats and premium materials make the cockpit a place to enjoy the outside or just be comfortable as you tool around town. Features such as a panoramic sunroof, optional Fender premium sound system and VW Car-Net App-Connect lets you enjoy a touch of sophistication while you’re out on the road or trail.

4MOTION Provides Control in Tricky Situations

If you’ve ever been out on a trail pondering whether you want to attempt to climb a particular hill or live to see another day, you’ll enjoy the thought engineers put into the off-road capabilities of the new VW Alltrack. VW’s 4MOTION all-wheel drive system automatically adapts to different surfaces and conditions, working in conjunction with Electronic Differential Lock and other systems to keep your wheels moving and you in control. Hill Descent Control takes the white knuckle factor out of descending a steep decline, helping control the low-end torque of your engine and gently applying the brakes as you head downhill. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters let you easily move up and down the gears as needed to help you remain in charge of speed and power.

Beauty More than Skin Deep

Only the most ardent critic wouldn’t admit that the new VW Alltrack is a beautiful design, with rugged good looks and an aerodynamic sculpting that is not only modern, but helps with fuel efficiency. Touches souch as the Bi-Xenon headlights are not only classy, but help illuminate the trail on those nights when the moon is dark. Tough bumpers and strategically-placed exterior cladding helps ward off obstacles, such as boulders and parking meters, that inconveniently pop up in your way. Check in with the pros at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale to schedule a test drive of the new VW Alltrack. It’s time to explore your wild side.
