2019 Volkswagen Tiguan on city street

The 2019 VW Tiguan is known for its spacious and flexible interior, but of course, there’s just as much to love under the hood as there is inside the cabin! Take a closer look at the Volkswagen Tiguan performance specs with Reeves Volkswagen before you get behind the wheel. Once you’ve seen how it handles the road, you’ll be hard-pressed to settle for any other compact SUV.

The VW Tiguan Engine

The Volkswagen Tiguan engine remains largely unchained from 2018. No matter which configuration you select, you’ll receive a 2.0-liter TSI® turbocharged Inline 4-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection and variable timing. Check out its specs right here:

  • Horsepower -181 hp
  • Torque – 221 lb-ft
  • EPA-estimated fuel economy – 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway
  • Maximum towing capacity – 1,500 pounds when properly equipped

Although the Tiguan is certainly impressive on paper, our neighbors might be even more impressed to learn how it’s expected to hold up over time! In J.D. Power’s assessment of the Volkswagen Tiguan reliability found this SUV to be above average, with a score of 4 points out of 5.

2019 Volkswagen Tiguan Performance Features

The 2020 VW Tiguan will be arriving later this year, with a projected release date in the summer. However, if top-tier performance features are what you’re after, you hardly have to wait until the new year to get them! Here are just a few of the technologies you’ll find in the VW Tiguan for sale in Tampa, today:

  • 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive – This always-active all-wheel drive system consistently delivers 90% and 10% of power to the front and rear wheels, respectively. If the system notices any slip on the roads near St. Petersburg, it will immediately send more power right where it’s needed. FWD is standard, but 4MOTION® is available across the lineup.
  • 8-Speed Automatic Transmission with Sport Mode and Tiptronic® – Every VW Tiguan configuration includes an 8-speed automatic transmission. If you’re interested in pulling out all the stops, you can switch to a Sport Mode or Tiptronic® manual mode with the press of a button.
  • 4-Wheel Independent Suspension – 4-wheel independent suspension minimizes the impact of bumps and imperfections in the road, so you can enjoy all your drives around Clearwater and Wesley Chapel.
  • Braking and Handling Assistance – Every Tiguan includes Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), and Engine Brake Assist (EBA). These allow for dramatically improved performance in the city or on the highway.
