Douglas Volkswagen sets newly-redesigned 2018 Tiguan model against leading competitors

The Twenty-ten decade has been the era of the crossover. Drivers love these vehicles because they offer the versatility of an SUV without the thirsty engine. While crossovers come in a wide range of sizes, compact models are some of the most popular because they are incredibly easy to handle and offer the perfect amount of space for a variety of drivers – including social singles, adventurous couples and on-the-go families. 

Volkswagen's Tiguan model recently underwent a major overhaul to make it as versatile as possible. For 2018, the compact crossover grew by more than 10 inches and was outfitted with a new 2.0-liter TSI four-cylinder engine that can attain approximately 22 miles per gallon in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. 

To help car shoppers learn more about the redesigned 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan, Douglas Volkswagen (located at 491 Morris Avenue in Summit) has published two special comparison pages onto its website ( 

The first comparison sets the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan against longtime class leader 2018 Toyota RAV4. Douglas Volkswagen highlights the two different seating configurations to show how versatile the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is for a wider range of consumers. For growing families, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan can be outfitted with three rows of seats that can accommodate up to seven passengers. This configuration of the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan boasts a 12.0 / 33.0 / 65.7-cubic foot cargo space. Drivers may also choose a 2-row, 5-passenger variation of the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan that comes with a 37.6 / 73.5-cubic foot cargo space. The 2018 Toyota RAV4 only comes with a 2-row, 5-passenger configuration. 

Another leading competitor that the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan was set against was the 2018 Ford Escape. When reading the comparison, shoppers will learn that the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan comes out ahead in seating accommodations, cargo space and warranty coverages. The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan comes with Volkswagen's all-new People First Warranty at no additional charge. The 6-year / 72,000-mile warranty offers both bumper-to-bumper and powertrain (including engine, transmission and 4MOTION all-wheel drive) coverage, and it can transfer to subsequent owners. A 3-year / 36,000-mile basic warranty and a 5-year / 60,000-mile powertrain warranty are included with the 2018 Ford Escape.
