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.
Great multi-purpose car/crossover
2009 Volkswagen TiguanTonyBassPlaya - Lake Worth06/16/2012
I needed a vehicle that I could put stuff in, get good gas mileage, and not hate to drive. I hadn't even considered this vehicle until my father informed me about a good review he had read on it and suggested I check it out. One (of many) great feature is the front passenger seat folding forward and almost completely flat. This allows me to put long items like a decent size ladder in there (almost 8' to the dashboard). Then there's the performance which far exceeded many of the competitors in my opinion. The handling is great, the acceleration is quick and the economy is reasonable for the performance it delivers. It completely fit my needs for a vehicle to use for personal use, occasional work use and hauling my bass guitar and equipment. No regrets and no real issues after a month and the vehicle was almost 3 years old when I bought it.
