Editor's Overview

The Tiguan aims and even succeeds somewhat in bringing European flair and athletic manners to a segment often focused on low-priced practicality. But the Tiguan's German character and turbocharged engine come at a higher cost than most rivals, its smaller size means less cargo space, and it doesn't offer safety features like blind-spot monitoring or amenities like a power liftgate.

Review of my Volkswagen Tiguan.

I have had no problems with the vehicle. It is comfortable to drive, reliable and has apple carplay which allows me access to texts, music, podcasts and directions. Maintenance is very reasonable for oil changes and other necessary maintenance. This is the. Second Tyquan I have owned and I really would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a crossover.

- June K

Excellent family car, good for tall parents.

Really nice interior, plenty of room in back seats with front passengers, wish the trunk was a little longer to accommodate the stroller plus groceries. Enjoy the apple carplay feature and Sirius XM satellite radio. The “faux” leather is really nice and cleans easily. Drives well, doors feel heavy and I feel safe driving with my baby in the car.

- Jenna B

Amazing car must have for anyone who cannot afford a supercar but wants a good.

Man let me tell you about this car. This car is the best car I've ever owned it runs smoothly no start up issue unlike the dinky Dodge nitro I was stuck with beforehand. It also looks absolutely gorgeous in grey it's such a wonderful car spacious and the seat material is comfortable and does not get overly hot in the sun.
