What's New for 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

Redefined Design and Powertrain

CarSmart of Farmington introduces the 2018 Tiguan, which has undergone a complete overhaul. This includes a stretched body for additional space and a redesigned look to meet diverse needs.

The Tiguan Limited continues to be available for those in Farmington and surrounding areas like Fredericktown and Ste Genevieve who prefer the classic feel.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

A New Engine with a Different Beat

The 2018 Tiguan's 2.0-liter turbo engine, coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission, marks a departure from its zestier predecessor. While the engineering is modernized, the Tiguan faces stiff competition in acceleration and refinement, particularly noticeable to drivers from Festus and De Soto.

CarSmart Pro Tip Of the Day

In the bustling world of car buying, everyone is looking for that perfect blend of comfort, safety, and style. At CarSmart, we believe that an informed customer is a happy customer. That's why today's pro tip focuses on features that not only enhance your driving experience but also contribute to your safety and satisfaction.

Firstly, let's talk about comfort. Heated seats are a must-have for those chilly mornings in Missouri. Not only do they provide a cozy start to your day, but they also help relax your muscles during long drives. Pair this with an 8-Way Power Driver Seat Adjuster, and you've got personalized comfort at your fingertips, allowing you to find the perfect driving position with ease.

Safety is paramount, and modern vehicles are equipped with features designed to protect you on the road. Brake Assist is one such feature, helping to increase braking power in emergency situations, giving you that extra layer of security. Another invaluable feature is the Back-Up Camera, providing a clear view of what's behind you, making reversing safer and more convenient.

Entertainment and connectivity are key for an enjoyable ride. Satellite Radio offers a wide range of channels to suit any taste, ensuring you have the perfect soundtrack for your journey. And with the increasing need to stay connected, having your favorite tunes or podcasts at your fingertips makes every trip more enjoyable.

Let's not forget about style and performance. Alloy Wheels aren't just about aesthetics; they're lighter, improve handling, and help dissipate brake heat more efficiently. Driving a car that looks good and performs well contributes to the overall joy of car ownership.

At CarSmart, we pride ourselves on an outstanding selection of vehicles that feature these desirable amenities. We understand that the details matter, and it's these features that turn a good driving experience into a great one. Our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction has made us a favorite among happy customers in Missouri and beyond.

So, when you're browsing for your next vehicle, remember these key features for a safer, more comfortable, and enjoyable driving experience. Visit CarSmart today, where our knowledgeable team is ready to help you find the perfect car with all the right features!
