Tiguan earns Cars.com's Best Compact SUV Award for 2018.
Volkswagen is proud to report that the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is the #1 winner in Cars.com’s Compact SUV Challenge. The annual comparison takes the bestselling SUV models in the US and compares them in 12 categories and in a series of real-world tests to establish the best of the best.
After a series of back-to-back tests, the three seasoned Cars.com judges awarded the 2018 Tiguan the highest score in the round-up – an outcome made even more impressive by the fact that the Tiguan had the lowest as-tested price among all of its competitors. “The Tiguan deserves extra credit — apart from the point totals — for offering safety features including automatic emergency braking as an option on the base trim and standard in our SE and all higher trims”, says Cars.com.
The judges also love the Tiguan’s versatile and generous cargo accommodations. As the longest vehicle in the test, the flat load floor with the backseat down managed to effortlessly accommodate Cars.com's 65-inch-long TV box. “Alternatively, you could stretch out your sleeping bag if you're under about 6-feet-4”, say the Cars.com editors.
Seating and interior space also scored high, with “the seat design, padding and recline-and-slide adjustments making it the grownup choice”. The panoramic moon roof, lengthy windows and low belt-line don’t just give the 2018 Tiguan a bright and open interior feel, they also lend greatly to outward visibility, giving the driver a “great view of the road from all angles”.
As for interior technology, the Tiguan does not disappoint. The standard 8.3-inch touchscreen multimedia system is a joy to navigate with impeccable ergonomic controls and features, coupled with a robust stereo system and full Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The available VW Digital Cockpit is also a true breakthrough – replacing a traditional analog instrument cluster with information digitally displayed in high resolution.
In the end, the 2018 Tiguan bested all competitors and impressed the Cars.com expert judges with its generous size and impressive value. It is available as a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine in four different trim levels: S, SE, SEL and SEL Premium. Despite being the least expensive vehicle in this year’s competition, the 2018 VW Tiguan earned the most points and the #1 rank, officially making it Cars.com’s Best Compact SUV for 2018.
