What To Expect When It Comes to Volkswagen Tiguan MPG

This midsize SUV with seating for five comes with standard front-wheel drive to help you achieve up to 23 MPG (city) and 30 MPG (highway). However, you can opt for 4Motion AWD on any of its three trim levels (the S, SE, and SE R-Line Black) to help you drive safer on slippery roads. Keep in mind, this comes with a slight reduction in fuel economy. Still, you can get up to an EPA-estimated 22 MPG (city) and 29 MPG (highway).1

Taking this Volkswagen Tiguan MPG into consideration, plus its tank capacity (15.3 gallons in FWD models and 15.9 gallons in AWD versions), you can travel for many miles on the highway on one tank of gas. With Orlando only 142.8 miles from Jacksonville and Raleigh 414 miles to the northeast, you can take your family on all sorts of adventures while spending minimal time at the gas pump. These trips are further helped along by this SUV's slate of state-of-the-art navigation features, including the VW Digital Cockpit, and comforts like heated front seats even on the base trim level.

How To Boost Your Volkswagen Tiguan MPG

There are ways to optimize your Volkswagen Tiguan MPG, just like there are tricks for boosting performance in all vehicles. If you're looking to drive as fuel efficiently as possible, make sure to get factory-recommended maintenance for your vehicle, as services like oil changes and tire rotations boost performance, as well as lower the risk of premature repairs and replacements.

You should also avoid idling or sudden braking. Smoothly coasting to a stop reduces energy waste. Check your tire pressure regularly since underinflated tires increase friction with the road and, thus, create drag. Lastly, avoid loading up your vehicle too much. While the VW Tiguan has a maximum of 73.4 feet of cargo room behind the first row in some configurations and can tow up to 1,500 pounds when properly equipped, this extra weight will result in less efficiency. If you don't need to actively take heavy items from place to place, consider storing them elsewhere.

If you notice a consistent dip in fuel economy without an obvious cause, like a heavy load, visit our service department so we can quickly identify the issue and get your vehicle back up and running the way it should be.
