2018 VW Tiguan

GA Voice - - Front Page -

I’m still not sure what the heck a Tiguan is, but it’s back for a sec­ond sex­ier gen­er­a­tion. Stretched with avail­able third-row seats, it’s roomier for all you haul and do. A larger in­te­rior trans­lates into more ex­pan­sive stream­lined body­work that chan­nels Audi, look­ing great at the valet stand or parked at the out­door mall. Get­ting you there is a 2.0-liter tur­bocharged four-cylin­der en­gine that de­liv­ers 184 horse­power and 22/27 mpg — a bit less with 4Mo­tion all-wheeldrive. Slip into the left lane and have at it! Like all Volk­swa­gens, the new Tiguan drives like it was en­gi­neered to swal­low miles of fast Au­to­bahn.

BASE PRICE:

$25,345

If Swedish style and lux­ury are your pref­er­ences, you’ll have a great choice early next year. There’s a new Volvo XC60 com­ing, but check out this slightly smaller and more youth­ful ex­pres­sion of Volvo. The cross­over is dis­tin­guished by an op­tional color-con­trast­ing roof, LED mood light­ing, ver­ti­cal swipe-screen, panoramic sun­roof and large wheels. Not sur­pris­ing in a Volvo, safety is for­ti­fied by stan­dard pedes­trian, cy­clist, ve­hi­cle and large an­i­mal de­tec­tion with au­to­brake. A 250-horse­power, tur­bocharged four-cylin­der en­gine will be stan­dard at first with hy­brids and EVs to fol­low. Leave it to the Swedes to cre­ate
