2019 Volkswagen Tiguan represents the final victory of the compact crossover on US market since there were a couple of years of trying to make its place among other cars there. Whatever they tried has not been good enough, until they concluded that US buyers want only one thing – large cabin and high towing capacity. The new Tiguan was changed for the last year, and now we have slightly redesigned version of it, now even more adapted to the US market.
As we said, the last year model was enlarged and redesigned to be more rough and aggressive, so 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan simply has not reasons to be much changed this time. It is visibly larger and longer, with a higher roof which provides more space in the cabin. The front end has the recognizable gridded grille and simple but large front lights, and wide air intake on the bottom. The rear end is also simple and compact, with rounded trunk door and flat and squared rear lights. The car has metallic protection on the bottom and chromatic details as decoration. Thanks to the sloped roof, the car is more compact and rounded.
2019 Volkswagen Tiguan has very attractive and modern cabin, but also very large, as buyers in US like. It is even enlarged now, with new seven large seats and has capabilities of carrying even 73.5-cubic feet of cargo, for 17.4 feet more than on the previous model. The cabin has leather trim and wide but simple dashboard, with dark grey quality plastic and classic buttons and commands. However, there is no touchscreen on the dashboard, but the manufacturer promised good infotainment system included.
The engine in 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is maybe the simplest thing that this manufacturer offers, because they have not tried with too many models and versions, but only one. That is 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. The engine is matched with eight-speed automatic transmission and future buyers will be able to choose between front and all-wheel driving system. There is a very long list of equipment like automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise, lane-departure warning, however, since Tiguan has not been on any test driving for now, except small overlap test, we cannot say how much it is safe.
2019 Volkswagen Tiguan Release Date and Price
Now, when Tiguan finally won the US market we expect that 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan could be on the market after September as slightly redesigned last year model. Since there were no many changes from the last version, the price should remain the same as for the last year model, which means $26,000 for the base model and $38,500 for the model with all equipment. The competitors are usual for this class of the cars, like Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5, and Honda CR-V.
