Here at Donaldsons Volkswagen, the newly-redesigned 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan has caught the eyes of many of our customers. Thanks to its smaller size compared to the large Atlas, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is a great choice for a variety of drivers. However, it is not too small for on-the-go families.

The newly-redesigned 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan now has a new set of rivals – one of which is the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander.
