Volkswagen Tiguan Overview

The Tiguan is a solid and agile small SUV. Pluses include high-end fit and finish and spacious rear seating. Handling is very responsive and enjoyable, with sharp steering, and the Tiguan stays secure at its limits. With its 19-inch tires the SEL rides stiffly; lower trims, with 17-inch tires, ride more comfortably and quietly. The 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine is smooth and purposeful and yielded 21 mpg overall in our tests. A well-equipped Tiguan can easily climb into the mid-$30,000 range. Reliability has been average.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
