2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Detroit Auto Show. VW’s 2.0-liter turbo four powers the Tiguan with 184 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic sends power to the front wheels, or all four with the optional 4Motion all-wheel drive system. The model uses VW’s MQB architecture, but was developed specifically for American customers. Its 109.9-inch wheelbase is 4.4 inches longer than the European version of the Tiguan.
