The Volkswagen Tiguan is the perfect first adult car.

My Volkswagen Tiguan is the perfect car for someone who likes to drive an SUV but does not want to spend the money like owning an SUV. My car comes in a few different models based on special features and what you are willing to pay. The se comes with safety features such as the blind spot indicators on the side view mirrors, vehicle breaking for a quick stop like when something jumps in front of your car. The se also comes with a sunroof, seat warmers and an eco engine which shuts off every time you come to a stop to help save gas.

Very functional, safe, family vehicle that is the size of a mid-size SUV but drives like a car.

I originally owned a 2014 Tiguan but when I found out I was having a baby it was just too small. I now own a 2018 Tiguan which is almost a foot longer and a few inches wider than the old model. I love the huge display screen and the backup camera is crystal clear. One of my favorite features of the car is CarPlay so I can make phone calls and text hands free. Overall, I love this car - my only complaints are the lack of a power seat on the passenger side and the lack of an automatic dimming rear view mirror.

- Shay V

Love it, one small annoying feature.

I love my truck there is enough room for all the kids, if you have smaller kids you can get 3 in the third row. We have done this once for a small 10 min trip. I could even still get a stroller and two bags stuffed into the trunk area behind them. The only thing i do not like is the curve of the trunk, which makes it hard to stack anything not squishable into the trunk area when you close the hatch.
