2020 Volkswagen Tiguan: Versatility with a German Twist

The Volkswagen Tiguan has come a long way since it first arrived on the market nearly a decade ago. The new Tiguan is a lot more spacious than the first generation, a lot more efficient and powerful as well, and a lot more versatile. What it hasn’t lost, however, is its ability to answer the needs of today’s family with style, grace, comfort and more importantly, typical German performance and comfort.


New VW Tiguan: More Space and Room for Seven


The new VW Tiguan is bigger, bolder, and larger in every way. The models we get here are all built on the VW MQB platform featuring an extended wheelbase. That’s a lot of words to say that the Tiguan is among the most spacious compact SUVs in its segment, and there’s even enough room for a third row of seats. That’s not something you see often in this segment.


As a matter of fact, with the Nissan Rogue removing the third-row option, the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is just one of two models in its class to offer room for seven passengers. There’s also between 1,065 liters and 2,081 liters of cargo space available in the trunk.


That’s more than the Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4, Hyundai Tucson, and Kia Sportage. There’s more interior space for passengers as well. The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan has morphed from a fun compact SUV to a versatile compact SUV, and families will love it. That said, it hasn’t lost its performance side, not one bit in fact.


Still a Blast to Drive


At the heart of the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic that ensures a smooth transition of power to the wheels and impressive comfort. Of course, having a wide range of gears also leads to better fuel economy.


In that regard, the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan does not let its owner down. With an average fuel economy rating of less than 10.0 liters per 100 kilometers, the Tiguan is one of the most efficient compact SUVs you can buy despite having more torque than any competitor.


The ample torque available at low revs translates into a lively vehicle that always seems ready to pounce. That forward lunge, however, is controlled and confidence-inducing. Passing with the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is also a breeze.


Finally, you get more tech than you might expect in the Tiguan. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a host of driver assistance technologies are available, as is a completely digital instrument cluster in top-of-the-line models. The refinement level in the Tiguan is out of this world, and you’ll truly feel like you are driving a luxury vehicle.
