VW Tiguan Exterior Dimensions

Before we take a look at all the ways in which you and your family can stretch out while traveling, we have to look at the exterior dimensions. The length, width, and height of your SUV determines how much interior space you can have.

Let’s see how the exterior measures up:

  • Length:1 inches
  • Width:4 inches
  • Height:3 inches

While these dimensions are large enough for a family, they’re also small enough to make parking a breeze. Although, if you want a little extra help, consider upgrading to the optional Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking.

With this system, you’ll receive audible signals when you’re too close to the vehicle either ahead of or behind you when parking. If you don’t react to the signals, the Maneuver Braking feature can apply automatic brake pressure to help avoid a collision.
