All new for 2018, the Tiguan is Volkswagen’s smallest SUV, but there’s nothing compact about it. It’s so much bigger than its predecessor that it now offers a third row of seats—a rarity in this class.

If bigger is indeed better, then the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan ought to be the best compact crossover SUV sold today. Measuring 185.1 inches stem to stern, VW’s all-new Tiguan overshadows every vehicle in its class. It’s also nearly a foot longer than its predecessor. Credit Volkswagen’s decision to send us the long-wheelbase version of the second-generation Tiguan instead of the shorter, 176.6-inch-long model that the company also sells in other markets.

The new Tiguan’s increased exterior dimensions translate to a larger passenger compartment, where Volkswagen has squeezed in a vestigial two-person, third-row bench seat into the rear compartment of every front-wheel-drive Tiguan. The tiny third row is offered as a $500 option on the all-wheel-drive Tiguan 4MOTION, which comes standard with seating for five and starts $1300 higher than the front-drive version. Adding the third row to the Tiguan reduces second-row legroom from 38.7 inches to 36.5. Likewise, the third row chops available cargo room behind the standard 40/20/40 split-folding second row from 38 cubic feet to 33. Raise the flat-folding third row and the Tiguan’s cargo hold measures just 12 cubic feet. At least the hatch features a wide opening and a reasonable 28.5-inch liftover height.
