Utilizing new technology that delivers better performance and efficiency, the four-cylinder EA888 engine that powers the new 2018 Tiguan is truly a modern marvel. As VW continues to decrease the size of their engines without sacrificing power, drivers can expect greater fuel mileage and longer engine life. VW engineers concentrated on creating a new combustion cycle that works best in the range of driving most often used by consumers. By closing the intake valves much earlier than normal, the new engine creates a longer combustion cycle and a more efficient fuel/air mix. The result is a 200-horsepower engine that has plenty of torque and still delivers 24 mpg on the highway.

Choose From Four Models

When the 2018 VW Tiguan arrives at Chapman Volkswagen, you’ll have four different models from which to choose. The Tiguan S front-wheel drive model starts at just a tick more than $25,000, and includes alloy wheels, LED running lights, halogen headlamps and LED taillights. You’ll also get a rearview camera, heated side mirrors and a 6.5-inch color touchscreen infotainment center. Step up to the SE and you get a larger touchscreen with voice control and three additional USB ports, keyless access, push-button start, dual zone climate control, leatherette seating surfaces and a suite of driver assistance features. The SEL adds even more goodies to the package, with 18-inch alloy wheels, navigation, remote start, power lift gate and panoramic sunroof. The SEL Premium is the top-of-the line, adding features such as 19-inch wheels, LED headlights with adaptive lighting (it goes around corners), rain sensing windshield wipers, leather seats and a heated steering wheel. All models come with your choice of front-wheel or 4Motion all-wheel drive.

Industry’s Best Warranty

The VW Tiguan offers a six-year/72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, the best in the automotive industry. While other companies leave you on your own for repairs after 36 months, the VW Tiguan major and minor components are covered for another three full years. With the cost of repairs skyrocketing due to the complex technology of today’s automobiles, that can mean thousands of dollars saved over the life of the vehicle.

Custom Packages Available

When you look over the new Tiguan inventory at Chapman Volkswagen, make sure and ask about all the different custom packages available. Third-row seating is standard on all the front-wheel drive models, but is an option on the 4Motion all-wheel drive units. You can add Driver Assistance features such as forward collision warning and pedestrian monitoring to the S trim package for just $850. A panoramic sunroof is an available option on the SE trim for $1,200. If you desire a more sporty look and parking assistance, make sure and inquire about the R-Line package, which is an option on the SEL and SEL Premium models.
