2018 VW Tiguan review of design
As mentioned the next gen Tiguan will be 10.7 inches longer than the older model. The dimensions will be in wheelbase 109.9 inches and in length 185.2 inches. The chassis of the crossover will be constructed with lightweight but durable materials. The C-pillar will also be different from the previous model. There will be larger lower air intake but the upper grille will be skinny. It will rule the roads with its 19” alloy wheels. The headlights will have LED trimmings and bright chrome lights that will spruce up the appearance of the vehicle along with illuminating the roads.
Tallish ground clearance, black plastic fender flares are features that will make this vehicle look attractive. The upper and lower section will be separated by a strong character line that will run through its length. The door handles will be incorporated at the character line along with the top of the tail lights. This classic design will be far for classic for its lovers. It is available in eight exterior colors: Pure White, White Silver Metallic, Platinum Gray Metallic, Deep Black Pearl, Silk Blue Metallic, Dark Moss Green Metallic, Habanero Orange Metallic and Cardinal Red Metallic.
The interior of the 2018 model of Tiguan will have angular instrument panel design that will include digital gauge cluster, next-generation infotainment system and a flat bottom steering wheel.

The extra length and the third row seats are the new addition and of course there will be no compromise in the leg room of the second row. The cargo space is expected to be 58.5 cubic feet.
