2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Wins Best Compact SUV Award

Recently, Volkswagen of America announced with great pride that the 2018 Tiguan was named "Best Compact SUV of 2017" by Cars.com, with the all-new SUV receiving praise for the utility, amenities and value it offers owners. Notably, the Tiguan offers consumers the best cargo capacity in class, and also finished with top marks in the Cars.com Car Seat Check.

The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan finished first in a strong Compact SUV category, beating such contenders as the 2017 Ford Escape, 2018 Chevrolet Equinox, 2017 Jeep Compass, 2017 Honda CR-V, 2017 Mazda CX-5 and 2017.5 Nissan Rogue.

To compute their rankings, Cars.com only examined vehicles that had a maximum MSRP of $35,000 -- including all options and destination fees. Judges drove each vehicle on the same loop in the Chicago suburbs in order to collect back-to-back impressions, with vehicles rated on value, roominess, furnished driver-assistance technologies and how easy it is to install a child safety seat.

The 2018 Tiguan, which is offered in S, SE, SEL and SEL Premium trim levels, and boasts a 6-year/72,000-mile limited warranty that includes powertrain components. Not only does this warranty offer longer coverage than its main competitors, it may also be transferred to future owners.

In a press release, Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Volkswagen of America, Inc., commented, "We are delighted that the 2018 Tiguan has been recognized by Cars.com as one of the best compact SUVs on the market. Every aspect of the Tiguan is designed to cater to the needs of American drivers and their families—from standard driver assist technologies to an optional third row—and this award validates the All-New Tiguan is a serious competitor in the segment."
