2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Trim Level Comparison

What’s the hardest thing about selecting a new vehicle? You might think it’s narrowing down your choices to a single model. Here at Winn Volkswagen, we see people every day who think they know exactly what they want, until they realize it’s not so simple as selecting a model. The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is an obvious choice for many families, but you’ll want to know more about the different trim levels, or grades, available before you sign on the dotted line.

This quick trim level comparison of the 2018 VW Tiguan will help you get a full picture of what your options are before you shop. You probably already know the all-new Tiguan now has a longer wheelbase, which means that it now offers optional third-row seating. Keep in mind this seating is a standard for front-wheel drive models, so the 4Motion AWD is a requirement if you prefer to shed the seating in favor of more cargo space. Though, the seats do fold flat, so they aren’t such a bad option to keep.

2018 VW Tiguan: Well-equipped from start to finish

The first think you’ll notice about the 2018 VW Tiguan is that the new model year brings a model that is impressive even in the base trim. This vehicle comes with all the standards when it comes to modern expectations for comfort and convenience, and then steps things up a notch. Higher trim levels obviously add on a number of features, mainly when it comes to driver’s assistance or additional comfort and convenience options.

At its core, all 2018 VW Tiguan models have the same basic benefits. Each trim has the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. Paired with it is an ultra-smooth 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport mode. Front wheel drive is standard for each trim, while the 4Motion system is an upgrade that will cost an additional $1,300 above the listed starting MSRP.
