2019 Volkswagen Tiguan

2019 Tiguan Photos
The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is Volkswagen's entry-level compact crossover entry, and it's only one of two crossovers the company offers (three if you count the lifted Golf Alltrack wagon). The 2019 is the second model year for this generation of the crossover, which was completely redesigned for the 2018 model year. It follows VW design sensibilities with a crisp but restrained look inside and out. One of its party tricks is an available third-row seat, a rarity among compact crossovers, which is made possible by the Tiguan having one of the segment's biggest interiors. Only one bodystyle is available, and all models come with a turbocharged four-cylinder and eight-speed automatic with a choice of front- or all-wheel drive. What's new with Tiguan for 2019? Not much changed for the 2019 VW Tiguan since it was redesigned for the 2018 model year. The top-level SEL Premium trims now come with all-wheel drive standard. A vehicle alarm is now standard starting with the SE trim. The SEL trim now gets standard parking sensors and the Digital Cockpit instrument panel. The SEL R-Design will be available early in the year before being replaced by the SEL R-Design Black that adds black alloy wheels and trim. What's the Tiguan's interior and in-car technology like? The Tiguan's interior is designed and laid out in a simple manner like Volkswagen's Golf. It's not especially stylish, and some would even call it plain, but everything is easy to use and find, and the materials are of a high quality. As expected for a crossover, the driving position is high, and visibility is phenomenal thanks to a tall roof and low windowsills and dashboard. Depending on trim, there are 6.5- or 8-inch touchscreens available, but the software and menu structure within them is basically the same. The 8-inch screen, however, does come with touch-sensitive menu buttons around its perimeter rather than 6.5-inch unit's conventional buttons. The interfaces are clean and simple, and the screen is very responsive. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard. Overall, it's one of the better systems available. Buyers that choose a Tiguan SEL or higher will also be treated to the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, which is basically the same all-digital instrument panel as Audi's Virtual Cockpit. It's a bright, high-resolution screen that's highly attractive. It operates so smoothly you could be forgiven for thinking it had real dials, but importantly, it places infotainment displays such as the navigation map and audio information prominently in front of the driver. How big is the Tiguan? The VW Tiguan is the longest crossover in its class, and it matches that with the longest wheelbase, too. Perhaps not surprisingly, then, it's also the heaviest in the segment. Inside, it's a slightly different story. It's indeed one of the most spacious in the segment and you should find lots of family-friendly space, but it's also not a class leader in terms of rear seat or cargo room. It does, however, have an ace up its sleeve: a third-row …
