After a recent redesign, the 2019 VW Tiguan is about to continue without more important changes. The previous-year model has brought a lot of novelties, a lot of improvements compared to the previous generations. The new model gets an updated styling, new interior design and plenty of new technologies, which all together puts this small crossover pretty high on rankings in the segment. All this clearly indicates that there is no place for 2019 VW Tiguan changes, at least those bigger ones. On the other side, we could see some novelties in terms of standard equipment, as well as a few more color options. Rest of the crossover is about to remain completely same. Expect to see it late in the year.
2019 VW Tiguan Design
In terms of base design characteristics, it is important to mention that this crossover receives a complete overhaul. The second generation rides on the company’s familiar MQB platform, used for pretty much everything from the VW Group when it comes to small and mid-size cars. Of course, there is a completely new styling, which makes this crossover far more attractive, despite the fact that the styling approach is pretty much in the company’s usual, very conservative approach. Other than that, it seems important to mention that the new generation is available in two variants, standard, and long-wheelbase versions. The latter one is available in Europe, China, and North America and comes with three rows of seating.
2019 VW Tiguan Interior Design
The 2019 VW Tiguan interior will definitely be one of the model’s strongest points. In North America, this crossover comes with a stretched wheelbase, which provides plenty of space on the inside. There are three rows of seating already in base models, though base AWD models come with only two rows. First, two rows are pretty comfortable and offer plenty of legroom. On the other side, the third row is a little bit tight, which is expected considering that this is still a compact crossover. When it comes to materials quality, the new Tiguan is on a pretty high level and 2019 VW Tiguan should continue in the same way, offering some new schemes, soft-touch materials and plenty of standard equipment.
If you hope that the 2019 VW Tiguan Limited could come back, we will have to disappoint you. The upcoming model is about to continue in the same way as 2018-year version, which means that the company has definitely dropped this trim level.
So, count on four trim levels in the offer for next year. The base S model is a bare bone but the SE model will already come with a decent load of standard equipment. Count on things like 8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, heated front seats etc. Also, you can count on a plethora of safety systems, including blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and autonomous emergency braking.
The SEL trim includes all above and also adds a panoramic sunroof, a power liftgate, adaptive cruise control, and similar things. Finally, the SEL Premium adds leather upholstery, 9-speaker Fender audio system, 360-degree camera etc.
2019 VW Tiguan Engine
Unfortunately, we won’t see any change under the hood of 2019 VW Tiguan. It will continue with a familiar 2.0-liter TSI engine, which delivers around 185 horsepower. Fuel economy goes around 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. These numbers definitely aren’t among the best results in class.
How much does VW Tiguan cost?
Of course, we will finish this 2019 VW Tiguan review with info about price. Latest reports suggest no changes, so expect to see new models in a range between 25.000 and 37.000 dollars, roughly. The 2019 VW Tiguan should arrive late in the year.
