Ample Space for All-Day Adventures

2021 Volkswagen Tiguan Interior Review

Life is ever-changing, which is why you need an SUV that can roll with the punches. Providing everything from a hands-free Easy Open and Easy Close liftgate to an available third-row of seats, the VW Tiguan helps you load up and get on the road easier.

Need an extra hand fitting that new coffee table in the back? The cargo area of the two-row model features seat release levers, which quickly drop the back-row bench. Now, you have up to 73.5 cubic feet of space at your disposal. Even with all seats up, you have access to 37.6 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats.

In the third-row model, you can achieve 65.7 cubic feet of cargo volume with all seats folded down. There is 33 cubic feet of space available with the third row down. Even with all the seats upright, you can still fit 12 cubic feet of cargo in the back.

Room for Many Passengers

Up front, the midsize SUV shows full-size ambition. Even when you opt for the 7-passenger setup, you and the crew will find plenty of room to stretch:



Headroom (first/second/third)

39.6/39.1/33.8 inches

Legroom (first/second/third)

40.2/36.6/27.9 inches

Shoulder room (first/second/third)

57/55.9/47.8 inches

Total Passenger Volume

123.9 cubic feet

Modern. Stylish. Fun.

The moment you climb inside the VW Tiguan, you and your passengers will be greeted with soft-touch fabric seats that you can sink into on every ride ahead. On higher trims, you can opt for the premium V-Tex leatherette seating. The steering wheel can also come wrapped in soft leatherette and features easy-to-use multi-function controls.

Those looking to add an extra dash of elegance can opt for the Vienna leather seating surfaces and a panoramic sunroof. Higher trims also include Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate control to maintain the perfect atmosphere.

No matter which trim level you choose, you’ll find multiple 12V power outlets distributed throughout the cabin. The outlets make charging your smartphone or powering a stereo at your next tailgate easy.

Intuitive Tech

2021 Volkswagen Tiguan Interior ReviewWhether you’re sitting behind the wheel or down the street at your favorite coffee shop, you can control the VW Tiguan from just about anywhere. Using the VW Car-Net® Remote Access, you can do anything remotely, like start the engine or lock and unlock the vehicle. It even can show you where you parked and keep tabs on your younger drivers.

Want to stay connected to all your favorite music, navigation, and other online services? All VW Tiguan models equip the MIB Infotainment system. The display uses a capacitive-touch sensor (like that of a smartphone or tablet) rather than the common resistive touchscreens that require pressure. So you can now swipe and pinch your display.

Embarking on a journey? You can access these features and more:

  • Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™: Dive into Queen’s discography, your psychological thriller audiobook, or your favorite true crime podcast with these integration systems.
  • Available Fender® Premium Audio System: This 9-speaker audio system was designed to make every listening experience like you’re in the front row at a concert for passengers in the front of the SUV or the back.
  • Bluetooth® technology with audio streaming: Want to enjoy the open road and call your best friend at the same time? This hands-free technology allows you to stream music, connect with your contacts, and more.

Volkswagen Digital Cockpit

Standard on higher trim levels, drivers are able to access a fully-digital instrument cluster with the VW Digital Cockpit. With a 10-inch display that has 21 different viewing options, you can configure whichever important vehicle information you’d like. You can display car status, navigation, driving data, phone information, driver assistance features, and more.

You can also use intuitive cockpit features, such as the available full-screen navigation system. Opting for this increases the size of the map, which can provide a better view of where you're going and how to get there.

Active Safety

2021 Volkswagen Tiguan Interior ReviewThe VW Tiguan prioritizes your life and your safety. That is why this SUV equips multiple passive and active safety systems. Alongside airbags and several electronic safety systems like the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), the VW Tiguan equips these standard features:

  • Rearview Camera: This standard camera is excellent for looking out for nearby objects or vehicles in your path while you’re reversing. This feature also comes in handy when you’re parallel parking as well.
  • Automatic Post-Collision Braking System: In certain accident scenarios, this system can apply the brakes when a primary collision is detected. It does this to potentially reduce residual kinetic energy to avoid the chance of additional damage.
  • Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS): This post-collision feature shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and switches on the hazard lights after it has been involved in an accident.

Do you want additional safety watching your back on your Sunday morning brunch outings or Monday afternoon errands? The VW Tiguan offers a comprehensive suite of driver-assistance technologies, such as:

  • Forward Collision Warning: This system warns the driver audibly and visually when it detects a potential front-end collision.
  • Blind Spot Monitor: This feature uses radar sensors at the rear of the vehicle to scan for approaching traffic. If the driver turns on their turn signal when this system detects a vehicle in their blind spot, it will alert them with an LED light in their sideview mirror.
  • Rear Traffic Alert: While in reverse, this system is intended to warn the driver when it detects an oncoming vehicle in your rear cross traffic.
  • Available Park Distance Control: This available feature uses front and rear sensors to monitor up to five feet in the front and back of the vehicle. This system can provide guidance in tight parking spots.
  • Available Lane Keeping System: When this available system detects that the driver is swaying into other lanes without a turn signal, it can actively counter steer the VW Tiguan to keep them on their intended path.
