22. Volkswagen Tiguan
2018 Sales: 55,395
Vs. 2017: +226.5%
Volkswagen’s compact 2018 Tiguan crossover is redesigned specifically for the U.S. market, and to say it has hit the mark is an understatement. Sales for June 2018 were more than five times the total for June 2017, and sales for the first half of 2018 are up 226 percent compared to 2017. Based on Volkswagen’s Modular Transverse Matrix architecture, the 2018 Tiguan is 10.7 inches longer than the previous model with a 4.4-inch longer wheelbase, offering more interior space and third-row seating. Adopting Volkswagen’s current design language, the exterior includes sharper, stronger lines and a lower, wider stance. Motivated by a new version of Volkswagen’s turbocharged 2.0-liter TSI engine producing 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque, the new Tiguan delivers power to the front wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission. 4Motion all-wheel drive with Active Control is optional and offers four drive modes to maximize traction in different driving conditions. Volkswagen’s Digital Cockpit display also is optional, and an available Car-Net system offers connected vehicle services.
