While its sibling Touareg is coming for 2019 as a new generation model, Tiguan is suffering only cosmetic changes. This includes interior and exterior, while engine lineup remains the same. The 2019 VW Tiguan will be spacious SUV, with the very comfortable second row. Apple CarPlay and few more latest updates are coming again.
On the other hand, new 2019 Tiguan has to improve performance. Fans and owners were not happy with its driving mechanics. Transmission is slow, fuel economy is below par, and power converting is not on the great level. All in all, revisit of the drivetrain is needed. But, the German carmaker decided to keep the same 2.0-l engine as for the 2018 year model.
2019 VW Tiguan Exterior and Styling
Volkswagen Tiguan suffered big redesign. Its fans were surprised with a new look. So, we can’t expect another huge restyling in just two years. Nevertheless, there is always room for small cosmetic updates and changes. The tiniest detail modification on front fascia will be spotted by fans. Designers could do a small revisit to headlights and bumper, and there is already a topic for fans’ discussion. Also, the 2019 VW Tiguan is going to take some changes on the back.
Interior and Features
The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan has a comfortable cabin with a clean design. Although looking simple, the interior is packed with quality material and modern equipment. Everything is functional, and it is exactly what attracts buyers. Entry-level models are getting an 8-inch touchscreen display, while higher trims bring a 12-inch monitor. If someone is not happy with such layout, there is an R-Line model with numerous additions.
2019 VW Tiguan Engine
The 2019 VW Tiguan is going to keep existing engine for the upcoming season. It is a 2.0-l four-cylinder drivetrain. Thanks to turbo system, it can deliver 190 hp and 230 lb-ft of torque. That is slight improvement comparing to the 2018 year model. Old fans won’t be happy to see an 8-speed transmission box once again. It was lazy and slow, so engineers had to improve it if they want to fix overall impression about the crossover.
Fuel economy is very good. New Tiguan can sprint to 60 mph in about 9 seconds. However, its acceleration over this mark drops quickly. Drivers had the impression like SUV lost its power after this mark. That is another detail where the company is going to pay attention.
2019 VW Tiguan Release Date and Expectations
Model for 2018 season is still fresh, and Volkswagen is going to wait a bit before they launch another version. Another good reason is a redesign. So, buyers will need some time to get used to it. In few months we can expect the first information about the launch date of 2019 VW Tiguan.
How much will Volkswagen Tiguan cost?
Tiguan is a popular and reliable crossover. But, it is not among the best of the best. Its simple design and below-par performance are not going to attract as many buyers as its competitors can do. So, the company is using a different approach with a more attractive price. While the most popular vehicles in the class cost around $24,000 and over, 2019 Tiguan will be the cheapest compact crossover. We believe its price won’t exceed $23,000 for the base model.
