This year, it gave the American purchaser what it desired: a compact crossover with room for people and freight, thanks to its additional 10 inches in length.

On top of this make over, the existing Tiguan flaunts its capability to transport freight and people, as it can tote up to seven guests and up to 73.5 cubic feet of freight– enhancements of 2 guests and 17.4 cubic feet.

Power is routed through an eight-speed automated transmission. The Tiguan comes requirement in front-wheel drive, but buyers can likewise choose all-wheel drive.

The competition for the 2019 Tiguan will include the Mazda CX-5, Ford Escape, and the Honda CR-V.
