The Volkswagen Tiguan is a compact SUV that offers a serene ride and large cargo area, among other noteworthy characteristics. There are several trims to choose from here that include the S and SE. Each one comes with lots of features, so it's important to note the differences to determine which is a better fit for you.

That's why the team at Oklahoma City VW created this Volkswagen Tiguan S vs. VW Tiguan SE trim comparison. Discover what each has to offer. Then, contact us to see them in person near Oklahoma City, Norman, and Edmond, Oklahoma.

Volkswagen Tiguan Reliability

Both trims come with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. That engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode. The eight speeds provide smooth shifting, while the Tiptronic® mode lets you shift manually to really take control of your driving experience. The Volkswagen Tiguan offers a reliable performance in all of its trim levels. Whether you opt for the S or SE trim, you're getting plenty of power, efficiency, and traction.

You'll also have impressive Volkswagen Tiguan gas mileage, with an EPA-estimated 22 city/29 highway MPG. * With these numbers, you can travel on I-40 for as long as needed before stopping to refuel.

VW Tiguan Interior

Inside the VW Tiguan is lots of room for seven people among three rows. With 123.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, you'll be able to comfortably stretch out wherever you sit. Plus, with up to 65.7 cubic feet of cargo space, you can easily fit items from the OKC Outlets or Penn Square Mall.

Inside the S trim is cloth seating with a quilted rhombus design. Plus, you have 6-way manually adjustable front seats to help you get comfortable.

Meanwhile, the SE trim has V-Tex leatherette seating, plus a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat. Add on heated front seats, and you can stay relaxed behind the wheel during even the coldest months of the year.

However, both trims come with lots of impressive technologies, such as Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect. To use this feature, plug your compatible smartphone into the vehicle's USB port. Your favorite mobile apps will then appear on the 6.5-inch or 8-inch screen (found in the S and SE trims, respectively). You can then send texts, pull up directions, and more, without needing to touch your phone while driving.

VW Tiguan Safety

Finally, the Volkswagen Tiguan has lots of safety features for your peace of mind. With both the S and SE trims, you're getting driver-assisting technologies that can help prevent accidents from occurring.

For example, the VW Tiguan S offers features like Front Assist and the Blind Spot Monitor in a Driver Assistance Package. With these features in place, you'll be alerted when you're getting too close to a person or other vehicle. The systems will send visual and audible warnings and can even apply the brakes for you in some instances.

Meanwhile, the Volkswagen Tiguan SE comes with these features already, for added convenience.
