Hey Sassy Peeps,
Dawn here again with another SUPER SASSY auto review! This time it’s all about the 2018 VW Tiguan. As you guys probably know from my previous VDub reviews, I am a true fan of the brand. I simply love their consistency when it comes to making well-built vehicles that drive extremely smooth, that has the best rear cameras EVER, and has TOP NOTCH sound systems.
Since partnering with the brand, this year is the first year that I have had the pleasure of testing one of the SUV’s from their beautifully crafted lineup, and let’s just say that it didn’t disappoint.
Keep reading to see why there is nothing basis about this SUV…
I am a huge fan of vehicles that make opening the fuel door super easy and super convenient. The Tiguan is totally one of those vehicles. As long as the SUV is unlocked you can easily press the fuel door and voila it springs open. #NotBasicAtAll!
If you know me at all, you know that I am a bit frugal, love to save a dollar, and totally love the thrill of the thrift. So when I went to gas up I noticed that right on the inside of the fuel door it says “unleaded fuel only – regular”. My first reaction was “oh heck yeah!” At that very moment my admiration for the vehicle was heightened even more. Yassss…Volkswagen you’re giving me life with this unleaded fuel!
Lower & Lift w/Levers
Yep! I give this vehicle a way to go, for the 7-seat configuration with 3rd-row seating. However, that way to go was upgraded when I found out that the split-folding rear seat can easily expands your cargo space, and offers the ability to lower sections of the second row with SUPER EASY to use seat release levers. Keep scrolling to check out pic below.
Hands Free Liftgate
Although the hands free liftgate is available for the 2018 2018 VW Tiguan it wasn’t offered on this particular model. However, they did make sure you can easily close the gate by adding a handle on the right side of the liftgate. Another subtle and not so basic feature that I just love!
Alright Sassy Peeps, can we just take a moment to talk about how stylish this SUV is???? I simply love the design of the vehicle and the Habanero Orange Metallic is giving me so much life right now! Not to mention, it comes is several other sassy colors like, Silk Blue Metallic and Cardinal Red Metallic. #LoveOptions!
In addition to the vibrant colors, this vehicle comes equipped with MAJOR technology, is extremely fun to drive, and yes, GIVES ME LIFE! #DontSleepOnIt!
The Tiguan is offered in eight trim levels (Check them out HERE). The vehicle gets 22 mpg city and 27 mpg highway (24 combined). Annual fuel cost $1,500.00. You SPEND $750.00 in fuel costs over 5 years compared to the average new vehicle. Starting MSRP price: $24,575.00, price tested: $30,575.00. Additionally, VW offers a 6 year warranty/72,000 miles Bumper to Bumper/Transferable/Limited Warranty.
Sassy Peeps! As you can tell I am a big fan of the 2018 Tiguan SE? What are your thoughts on the vehicle? Inquiring minds want to know!
