Blue 2023 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV


The Volkswagen Tiguan, which received a notable mid-cycle refresh for the 2022 model year, has earned more updates for 2023, including new color choices and a new design for the SE R-Line model’s wheels.

Sitting right in the middle of the VW Taos and VW Atlas, the 2023 Tiguan comes in four trim levels: the S, SE, SE R-line, and SEL R-Line. The R-Line trim has always been the most popular, and we can expect that to be the case for the 2023 model as well.

Here is a rundown of everything the 2023 Volkswagen Tiguan has to offer:

The 2023 VW Tiguan Carries a Stunning, Familiar Design Language

On the outside, the 2023 Tiguan looks similar to its predecessor, with the angular bodywork and the wide, comparatively thin grille that merges into headlamps, which extend all the way to the front wheel apertures. A line light that shines next to the VW emblem to provide extra emphasis enhances its front appeal, as a light that runs from the front fender to the taillights for a dashing side profile.

The 2023 Volkswagen Tiguan interior is beautifully adorned, especially in the top-trim model with genuine leather seats, contrast-colored stitching, and a clear digital instrument panel. In its standard form. It has an 8.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment in the low dash. While the S and SE trims feature an 8.0-inch display in the instrument cluster, trims such as the SEL R-Line come with 10.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, and the front passengers have access to two USB-C outlets.

As an SUV with a third row, the 2023 Tiguan is great for those with expanding families. Cargo space is roughly 38 cubic feet behind the second row of the all-wheel drive models. This expands to 73.4 cubic feet with the second row folded down.

The 2023 VW Tiguan Delivers a Relaxing, Quiet Ride With Decent Fuel Economy

The Tiguan proudly ranks towards the center of the compact SUV class, thanks to its 2.0-liter turbo-engine, which makes 184 horsepower at 4,400 RPM and 221 pound-feet of torque at 1,600 RPM. Pairing with the 8-speed automatic transmission, the engine really does its job, providing smoothness and enabling swift upshifts when idling or rapid-fire downshifts during passing.

Many will say that the best part about the Tiguan’s drive is,in fact, the smoothness. The independent suspension is brilliantly calibrated for smooth responses, which is noticeable with the 17- and 18-inch wheels on the S ans SE trims.
