The Volkswagen Tiguan is a spacious and stylish SUV that can certainly help you get more out of your experiences of driving through Irvine, Garden Grove, and San Juan Capistrano. While the SUV is capable of holding plenty of cargo in the back, a lot of drivers are curious about the VW Tiguan towing capacity.
At Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore Irvine, we’re going to explore the vehicle’s abilities regarding power, cargo space, and of course, its ability to tow.
VW Tiguan Engine Specs & Performance
The Volkswagen Tiguan comes outfitted with the 2.0L TSI® in-line 4-cylinder engine. This engine is turbocharged and intercooled and is able to generate up to 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. The intercooler helps the engine perform at its optimal level without the risk of overheating during heavy performance. The engine comes mated to the 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport Mode.
Cabin Dimensions & Cargo Space
The VW Tiguan offers a spacious cabin that can hold five passengers. Of course, it can also be configured to hold up to seven passengers over three rows of seating. When configured for five passengers, the SUV offers 37.6 cubic feet of cargo space which expands to 73.5 cubic feet when the second row is folded.
The addition of the third row does dig into the cargo area, but folding it down flat results in 33 cubic feet of cargo space. Then, when the second and third rows are both folded flat, the VW Tiguan offers up to 65.7 cubic feet of total cargo space.
VW Tiguan Towing Capacity
While the Volkswagen Tiguan does offer some decent cargo space, sometimes you have more materials than what you can fit inside the cabin. You also have to factor in passengers because you may not be able to fold those rows down. However, you can always utilize the performance of the VW Tiguan and hitch a trailer in pack. When properly equipped, the VW Tiguan can tow up to 1,500 pounds—allowing you to carry all your passengers while trailering along your cargo.
Utilizing the Roof for Your Cargo
Although the Volkswagen Tiguan offers a spacious cargo area and a 1,500-pound towing capacity, you can also think outside the box–or cabin! There are plenty of available VW accessories, like roof racks and cargo boxes, that you can attach prior to any road trip. By using the roof for storage and trailering your additional cargo, your passengers can spread out and get comfortable for the ride.
