Finally, A Cuv That Is Built For Driving! — The Tiguan, in full trim, is a near- luxury CUV that is still a big secret in the industry. The VW costs 10% more than a RAV4 or CRV, but offers 30% better build quality. Fit and finish are superb, and the substantial quality of the Tiguan sets it above many of its Asian and American competitors. Cargo room is smaller than the others, and the drivetrain does make an unrefined sound under acceleration. But the Tiguan is an absolute pleasure to drive, and its GTI- like lateral handling will quickly win over most drivers. If you're looking to save 3500 dollars, go buy the homely RAV4 or Honda CRV. If you want a CUV that is attainable, stylish, and built for driving, get the VW Tiguan.

Go Test Drive One!!! — Impressive handling, performance and great fuel economy not to mention the best warranty package offered world wide. Electromechanical power steering (no power steering fluid) makes the vehicle extremely responsive yet gives it ease of handling at lower speeds. Turbo Straight Injected engine improves performance and delivers the muscle when you step on the gas combo ed with the 6 spd triptonic transmission for fun and great fuel economy. All this and great interest rates as well.

Best Suv I've Ever Had. — I love the fact that its an SUV that is powerful yet comfortable. Its sporty and really impresses the people around. Turbo is powerful as well, however your fuel economy is affected everytime you engage the turbo. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a comfortable ride, affordable SUV and if u have a small family. Was able to fit my family of 4 (inclusive of myself) with luggages when they came over!

Pros

The vehicle is an all around champ when it comes to coming and going. Great pcik up with its turbo, and steering/ handling is just what you expect from a German auto. Color Black on Black is very profession, and great for anyone.

Cons

The cargo capacity is tremendous and I find myself leaving the back seats down all the time!

Sleek, Professional, And Gas Sipper... — I can't say enough that this is a professional car big enough for a family but small enough for great gas mileage. The Turbo has great pick up when you need to get up and go! The black interior really cleans up nicely, and surprisingly never gets too hot in this Florida Atmosphere!

Great Car — Great car to drive. No maintenance issues to date (25k miles), excellent dealer support, wish higher optioned car didn't come with sunroof. Fun to drive, great in winter snow conditions.. Trunk space very good for class of vehicle. Mileage as advertised.

Fun To Drive Crossover — This crossover is fun to drive and rips through snow with ease. Its a bit tame on the power side but there's enough horses there for the car to still be fun to drive especially through snow. The benefits of the smaller engine are the great fuel economy I generally get around 600km per tank driving in the city.

Pros

great alrounder, handles like a car is overall really good but if you can go for a higher spec

Cons

its the cheaper version so it doesnt have half of whats writen in the manual like a panoramic sun roof or leather

Great Alrounder — good handling, stability acceleration versatility space, build cuality and esterior design decent fuel ecnomy cargo space and interior desgin services are at an average price. the best of it is the response in acceleration handling and the versatility or seat cargo arrangement

The ride of this small SUV is the best of the small SUVs...seats are outstanding!

Cons

space issues

Fun To Drive And The First Three Years Have Free Routine Maintenance — Having the turbo on this vehicle makes it all worth while. Great acceleration, braking and handling. Only complaint has been the squeal from the brakes while backing. Interior fit and finish is great and exterior is very good. Gas mileage if you learn not to take off fast is reasonable. FUN to drive is like a GTI on stilts!

A Real Treat To Drive And Own - My Best Vehicle Ever! — This is the best vehicle I have driven to date. I had a Honda CRV for four years, and there is just no comparison. The Tiguan is far sturdier, the ride is smooth and the handling extremely easy. I have only had my Tiguan for a month, but I am totally in love with it! I love the way it handles on the road in all weather, the ease of parking it, the quietness of the drive and the amazing acceleration. I have cloth seats and the warmer - a real treat!! This is a classy little SUV, and is great fun for anyone in the family to drive and enjoy!
