2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Orwigsburg PA

The upgrades to the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan in Orwigsburg PA and the 2018 Dodge Journey all go to further improve the crossover SUV models. However, if you're looking for greater practicality, price, responsive driving, and a fantastic warranty, the clear winner is the Tiguan. Some drivers may be more drawn to the Journey's larger frame and slight increase of power, but that can't compare to the advancements that come standard to the far more affordable and convenient Tiguan.

The Journey's larger design even works against it, creating less responsive handling and including a tank that is larger than the Tiguan, yet gains only a single mile more of fuel range in the city because of its lesser fuel economy, meaning you're buying more gas to drive the same distance. Further innovations of the Tiguan include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Blind Spot Monitoring
  • Rear Traffic Alert
  • Front and Lane Assist
  • Park Pilot
  • And More!

The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan sits a cut above the rest as a premiere high-quality crossover SUV. It you'd like to learn more or take the Tiguan for a test drive, it is currently available here at J. Bertolet Volkswagen in Orwigsburg PA. Stop in and you'll agree that the Tiguan is everything you need!
