Volkswagen, one of the earliest car manufacturers, responsible for the creation of the timeless beetle has recently ventured into the SUV/Crossover field.
With its [2018 Volkswagen tiguan], it promises to keep up with the ever growing popularity and demand for SUV or crossover vehicles. Though it is much smaller compared to other SUVs, it can still keep up with them and with a promising third row of seats, this SUV surely has tons of benefits you can gain from purchasing it.
No multiple trips for you
The 2018 Tiguan may be smaller compared to other SUVs but it’s still larger than the average car so that means you can fit your whole family inside whenever you need to drop them off somewhere, whether it can be off to soccer practice, to school or the mall, you don’t need to take two or even three trips compared to let’s say when you’re driving a Prius. The added third row of seats prove to be very advantageous in this aspect as well.
Save on gas
In line with what was mentioned above, you definitely can save a lot of money from not going back and forth to fetch the kids and dropping them off one by one. Though old model SUVs are notorious for being gasoline thirsty beasts, more modern SUV/crossover vehicles are breaking the stereotype and are proving to be very fuel efficient so you get better mileage for every liter of gas you pump into your little monster.
Safety first, people.
An SUV is always safer compared to a compact car, no matter how much safety measures and equipment is installed, a head on collision between a compact car and an SUV will just make that compact car more… compact. It’s literally just physics. This can somehow be avoided though through safe driving and being aware of your surroundings but you still can never be too sure, getting the 2018 Tiguan would be a better option compared to a Kia Picanto for sure.
Avoid getting your engine from drowning
If you live in a place that is notoriously known for flooding, your best bet may not be that new Honda Civic you’ve been eyeing. You don’t want to get swamped in the middle of the street now, do you? The SUV is a better solution for flooded streets since it usually has a higher stance compared to sedans, which would also mean that the chance of it getting swamped would be much less. Add to the fact that there are a lot of aftermarket products and modifications you can add to your SUV to make it more flood proof (as well as making it look cooler).
Ok there’s also a lot of other SUV/crossover vehicles out there but why should you choose the Tiguan? If not for the benefits of having an SUV or that third row of seats, you might want to consider its very tempting warranty which covers you a full six years or 72,000 miles fully transferable. That’s a lot of miles covered.
