Nothing will get you going quite like a highly-capable engine. The 2018 Tiguan has just that, coming in standard with a turbocharged 2.0L TSI® engine that rips up roads while leaving behind something your great-grandchildren will thank you for. Despite the powerful 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque, the 2018 Tiguan still rocks out while skating by on 22 city/27 hwy mpg. Gone are the days of poor gas mileage and subpar performance. 2018 is here, and Volkswagen came prepared.

Performance in the 2018 Tiguan

Exceptional SUVs bring more to the table than just your basic performance features. The 2018 Tiguan comes standard with four different modes, allowing you to customize your drive based on the conditions of the road. Those four modes include:

  • Snow Mode: engine upshifts earlier which spreads power out to the wheels gradually to prevent sliding
  • On-Road Mode: default setting; use for good road conditions
  • Off-Road Mode: ideal for use on rough terrains or on non-paved surfaces; activates Hill Descent Control when the hills get too steep
  • Off-Road Custom: driver has the option to customize aspects such as steering and all-wheel drive options to their own liking
