Comfort and efficiency in one.

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL Premium

The Tiguan sel premium is an amazing car. I feel safe knowing I am in a good, reliable car. There are a lot of key features that help with performance and comfortability. My favorite feature is that it has the birds eye view camera. This helps me backing up, parking, and especially helps me feel safe. I know this is not what the feature was made for but I think the fact that you're able to see what is around you at the push of a button makes me feel more aware of my surroundings. One of my favorite times to use this is when I am sitting in my car alone waiting for someone/thing. (Especially when feeling anxious) I press the button and I can see everything around me without having to turn my head. The way the car drives is truly amazing too. Does not feel heavy while driving. All the different modes including sport, comfort, eco, off road, and snow makes me feel like I could take this car on a road trip around the country.

Tiguan packs performance without minimizing features

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan S

This is my first SUV purchase as I had only driven small sedans before. I was afraid of losing the performance in an SUV that I had in a sedan. Luckily in this car I notice no difference. It still gets to speed quickly and responds well. I also like the shape of the car. It's not too big for city living, but big enough to move large items around. The only issue I had was that sometimes the seat belt would stick and I couldn't get it undone. Other than that, after owning it for over a year, I haven't had a single issue. Apple Carplay is nice for hands on, I really appreciate the backup camera, and the Third row of seats has proven to be helpful a number of times. Overall really happy with the features of this car and it's performance. Will most likely repurchase.

This car is great and versatile for any size family!

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

I love the style of the 2018 Tiguan, gives you the feel of a luxury SUV for a reasonable price. I purchased the standard model, so I don't have a ton of bells and whistles. I love that even as the basic model it still has “upgraded” features such as Bluetooth capability and apple carplay, and a backup camera. As an upgrade from my previous 2008 Jetta, I am thankful for all of these features! The only feature I don't have and didn't expect is a “poppable” trunk. My truck can only opened manually, even when pressing the button on the key. There is not even a lever inside the car that allows you to pop it. This was very disappointing as any car trunk can be popped. However, despite that, I love my Tiguan!
