This solid and nimble small SUV has high-end fit and finish and spacious rear seating. Handling is very responsive and enjoyable, with sharp steering and strong cornering grip that keeps the Tiguan secure and unflappable at its limits. With its 19-inch tires, the SEL rides stiffly. The lower S and SE trim lines, with 17-inch tires, ride more comfortably and quietly. Automatic climate control is available only on the SEL. The 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder is smooth and yielded 21 mpg overall in our tests. A well-equipped Tiguan can easily climb into the mid-$30,000 range. Updates for 2016 include greater availability of keyless access with push-button start and more trim lines getting a power driver's seat. Reliability has been average.
