The Volkswagen Tiguan received a full redesign in 2018 and debuts for 2019 with even more updates, including a new alarm system for the SE model and a standard Volkswagen Digital Cockpit and Park Distance Control for the SEL trim. At the heart of every 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan is a turbocharged 184-hp, 2.0-liter engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
It’s this engine and the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan’s finely tuned suspension that gives the SUV a smooth, dynamic driving experience. In fact, it’s this set-up and the Tiguan’s high-end cabin that gives the SUV an advantage over the competition. To best showcase all the Tiguan is capable of, we have put it head to head against the 2019 Acura RDX.
