VW Tiguan Fuel Economy

The Volkswagen Tiguan can get up to an EPA-estimated 22 MPG city and 29 MPG highway.[i] To deliver this kind of fuel economy, it has standard front-wheel drive and runs on a 2.0L TSI® 4-cylinder turbocharged engine.

4MOTION® all-wheel drive with Active Control is available on every trim level. With all-wheel drive, the VW Tiguan gets up to an EPA-estimated 20 MPG city and 27 MPG highway.[ii]

Both options work with a standard 8-speed automatic transmission that includes Tiptronic® and Sport mode. It provides you with efficient shifting, plus it gives you the option to take control and shift manually without a clutch.

Aerodynamic Dimensions

While the Volkswagen Tiguan has an efficient engine and transmission on the inside, the outside sports a streamlined design. Its rounded edges and aerodynamic appearance help boost its fuel economy with a 0.35 drag coefficient.

Overall, it stands 66.3 inches high and 72.4 inches wide, while the frame is 185.1 inches long. Together, this makes it both agile and maneuverable. It can even pull off a curb-to-curb turning circle of 37.7 feet. It also rides high with a 7.9-inch ground clearance. This improves the airflow and gives you the ability to drive over bumps, streams, and potholes with ease.

On top of being both aerodynamic and stylish, this design makes the VW Tiguan lightweight too. It accelerates quickly and efficiently with a curb weight of only 3,757 pounds.  This combination helps you travel far on its 15.9-gallon fuel tank.

Performance and Capability

Whether you’re interested in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the VW Tiguan offers lots of power under the hood. In addition to delivering an efficient performance, its turbocharged engine gets up to 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque.

The available 4MOTION® all-wheel drive with Active Control makes the VW Tiguan capable too. While every trim comes with Electronic Stability Control, Anti-Slip Regulation, and Electronic Differential Lock, Active Control takes your traction to the next level.

It lets you adapt to your current driving conditions. By just turning a dial on the center console, you can quickly switch between selectable driving modes, such as:

  • On-Road
  • Off-Road
  • Snow
  • Off-Road Custom
