The road gets long and daunting. Your fellow passengers can get irritating. Why settle for average when you can go with extraordinary? The 2018 Tiguan and 2018 Equinox both offer a modern touch on the contemporary body style that is the crossover, but it’s the Tiguan that really stands out. It comes with an available 12.3 inch display for a high-resolution appearance instead of your typical instrument cluster. With an available wide map navigation view, the cluster suddenly becomes an intelligent and easy-to-see road map with navigation routes that allow you to get where you need to go without needing to look down. Sure, the Equinox has smart technology, but does it have a large screen display with easy navigation? It doesn’t, and that’s where the Tiguan shines.

If you’re still on the fence about these two, that’s alright. Buying a new crossover is no small deal. If you want to learn more about the 2018 Tiguan, stop by our dealership and check it out or schedule a test drive right here on our website!
