The first engine is a turbocharged four-cylinder that is capable of producing 235 horsepower. The second available engine is a 3.6-liter V6 pumping out 280 horsepower. Both engines will be paired with an eight-speed transmission to maximize fuel efficiency.

The 2018 Tiguan comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine on all trim levels. The engine is similar to that of the past model but has been modified to produce more torque than ever before. Like in the 2018 Atlas, the 2018 Tiguan will also be paired with an eight-speed transmission.
