Here’s a closer look at some of the exciting features the Volkswagen Tiguan offers.

The Volkswagen Tiguan comes in four trim levels: the S, SE, SE R-Line Black, and SEL R-LINE. The base trim, the S, comes with plenty of cool standard features, like a digital gauge display that elevates your Volkswagen with intuitive controls and a sophisticated design. Also standard on the S are features that normally require upgrades in other SUVs, like heated seats, blind spot monitoring, and brake assist.

The next trim level, the SE, offers drivers even more exciting features. With travel and emergency assist, remote liftgate operation, and wireless capability, the SE model has everything you didn’t know you needed in an SUV. Those who opt for the SE R-Line Black can benefit from a slightly sportier design and 19-inch black alloy wheels for an extra oomph to its already stately exterior styling. This trim also has a panoramic sunroof and interior lighting color options.

The top trim, the SEL R-LINE, adds a level of luxury for drivers and their passengers. With a state-of-the-art sound system, ventilated leather seats, and a stylish illuminated grill, you can ride in both comfort and style.


The Tiguan doesn’t just look good. It performs well too. Here’s a closer look at some specs for the vehicle:


With its turbocharged engine, the Tiguan has enough peppy power to take you on all your grand adventures. The 2022 Tiguan trims are all equipped with a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers a satisfying 184 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. The SUV does well on fuel economy, too, especially for its size. Specifically, you can get up to 23 mpg in the city and up to 30 mpg on the highway. That means you can use your cargo capacity to the max without stopping to fuel up too frequently.


The turbocharged engine connects to an automatic eight-speed transmission in the Tiguan. Enjoy the smooth shifting and, for those who want more control, turn on your Tiguan’s Tiptronic mode, which allows you to shift manually. No matter how you want to drive it, the Tiguan handles well and delivers an exceptional driving and riding experience.


The five-seat model allows you to easily fold the seats down to access an impressive 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space. Even though the Tiguan is a smaller SUV compared to some of its rivals on the market, you can benefit from its sleek design without sacrificing interior storage space. Spacious rear legroom and available third-row seating help to make the Tiguan a truly versatile and comfortable vehicle.


The Tiguan comes with a lot of unique features you’ll love in an SUV. With this vehicle, you get:

Driver Assistance

One of the top features of the Tiguan is its driver assistance technology. This includes a blind spot monitor, parking distance control, and a road sign display. All these features help drivers feel safe and in control on the road. Also available is IQ.DRIVE, a top technology package from Volkswagen that gives drivers access to even more great safety features. With IQ.DRIVE, you get rear traffic alerts, lane assist, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and more.

The Tiguan truly puts you in the driver’s seat, with lots of practical technology designed to keep you and your passengers traveling confidently.

Innovative Display

One of the most loved features of the Tiguan is its gauge display and infotainment system. Volkswagen’s Digital Cockpit includes a high-resolution display with premier navigation and customizable features. Dials let you adjust the climate and control the seat heat or ventilation in select models. Get to your destination securely with a map that expands to show you the best view of your route and where you’re going.


Top technology in the Tiguan doesn’t stop with safety and display options. It also helps you stay connected while on the road. Keyless access with push-button start and wireless charging both come standard in this SUV. More available features let you access a hot spot and even the internet via your myVW app. Special connect technology pairs with your phone so you can link to the SUV’s exceptional sound system. Opt for the SEL R-Line to enjoy the Fender premium audio system.

Drive Modes

The Tiguan has available all-wheel drive and a smooth, eight-speed automatic transmission, but drivers still have total control over how their SUV drives. A convenient dial lets you switch between four drive modes to select the one that best suits your needs. The drive modes include a snow mode, an on-road mode, an off-road mode, and an off-road custom mode.

Stylistic Options

The Tiguan looks good inside and out. The 2022 model has updated exterior styling, elevating the appearance of the vehicle from the outside. But the car boasts plenty of fun available features that can take your style even further. Take, for example, the ambient lighting options in the SE R-Line Black. You can choose from 15 different interior lighting options to match your mood and personal style. Other eye-catching features include the available illuminated grille and LED headlights. You’ll turn heads in the Volkswagen Tiguan.
