The Tiguan is basically a Golf with SUV clothes. As such it has great handling and comfort for its small size. The 2.0 Turbo is a VW engine in all kinds of volksies and for good reason: smooth, powerful, sort of efficient. Sort of efficient because it will get good mileage if you stay off the gas. But it will suck premium fuel like a V8 if you zip around. Still, it's your choice. The panoramic sunroof is the bomb. We had a hard time finding one with light interior. It was worth the search because it suits the car to be black on beige. It feels elegant. The sat-nav and blue tooth are nice gadgets. Unfortunately the back up camera feature does not work - because there is no camera. But someone forgot to mention this to the system.
My wife loves this car. And she is not the type to love cars. They are more or less appliances to her. The last car she loved was an 88 Volvo 240 wagon. So... she likes quality reliability solidness-- with a bit of quirky uniqueness. The Tiguan delivers.
Finally, a car that fits my personality

It's a great size, not too big, not too small. Lots of personality, nice features without being overboard with tech gadgets.
CarMax does it again
Hate Car Shopping - Colorado Springs, CO07/17/2012
My husband and I love CarMax as we enjoy not only the variety of vehicles available, but the no hassle or haggling attitude. We have also found that their buyback rates are as good as any dealership in town, so if interested in one-stop shopping the place to go. Our only hiccup has been that we often know more about the vehicles (details on engine, options, etc.) than the employee who helps us. However, we do understand the challenge when there are so many vehicle make and models availalbe (unlike dealership that focus on just their brand(s)).
Now onto my Tiguan... I love it! It's Volkswagon small SUV which is perfect for our two-person household. Seats fold down, there is a pass-through, and most everything adjusts. I did not want the larger Volkswagon SUV (Touareg) due to its size and more importantly its pricepoint. This one allows for carrying of most items with as much comfort and better mileage. More power would be the only complaint my husband has, but still has pretty good "get-up and go."
