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 strong cornering grip that contribute to the Tiguan staying 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. Some trim lines lack automatic climate control. The 2.0-liter, turbo four-cylinder engine is smooth and purposeful, and yielded 21-mpg overall in our tests. Updates for 2016 include more trim lines getting a power driver's seat. Reliability has been average.
