2018 Volkswagen Tiguan technology features
While the Tiguan is officially classified as a compact crossover, it certainly doesn't feel that way. Its spacious and comfortable interior will wow you and its list of standard and available features seemingly goes on forever. Those features more than justify its higher starting price than that of the 2018 Kona. It starts with the VW Digital Cockpit. This innovative system lies right between the Tiguan's tachometer and speedometer and incorporates all sorts of infotainment technology that can be personalized. When Apple CarPlay or Android Auto are paired with the Tiguan's Fender premium audio system, it will make you feel like you're in the front row at your favorite concert.
