2013 Volkswagen Tiguan packs a punch behind the wheel

The 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan might not be the biggest compact SUV, but it certainly packs a powerful punch. Its turbocharged engine delivers strong acceleration, and the Tiguan's sophisticated suspension delivers agile handling and a comfortable ride. And inside, you'll find an upscale cabin. But the Tiguan's smaller size means it has less cargo capacity than some of its competition, and that powerful engine doesn't return the best fuel economy.
