Volkswagen Tiguan Expert Review
The U.S.-market Tiguan is something of an in-betweener, larger than most direct competitors yet smaller than every conventional three-row SUV. The first-generation Tiguan was introduced for the model year, and the current second-generation model went on sale for with an available third row. It received a midcycle refresh for with an overhauled trim and pricing structure.
- Fresh exterior styling with new LED headlights and taillights
- New exterior colors including Oryx White and Kings Red Metallic
- New wheel designs
- Reworked interior details including the steering wheel and seating upholstery
- Heated front seats are now standard
- A digital gauge cluster display becomes standard on all models
- Touch-sensitive controls on certain trim levels
- Expanded availability of driver-assist and active-safety features
Volkswagen fine-tuned the Tiguan for and made some incremental improvements. Where we once felt the engine and transmission pairing lacked refinement, VW seems to have fixed these issues with the updated model. The same goes for the once disjointed ride dynamics. Now, "handling and grip is beyond adequate for its intended purpose" when the Tiguan is pushed hard on twisty roads. Otherwise, VW has made some improvements in the cabin that add premium touches to the interior like standard heated front seats and a standard digital gauge cluster.
The Tiguan's available third row is part of its on-paper appeal, but anyone taller than a child will be miserable back there—it's tiny. The pre-refresh Tiguan placed near the bottom of our compact crossover rankings. For it to improve, we'll have to put the model through our testing regimen.
The Tiguan's sole engine offering is a liter turbo-four engine that produces horsepower and lb-ft of torque. It's connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission, driving the front wheels as standard or Volkswagens' 4Motion AWD system optionally. In MotorTrend testing, a 4Motion-equipped Tiguan accelerated from 0 to 60 mph in seconds. EPA-rated fuel economy should be close to the Tiguan's 23/29 mpg city/highway for FWD models, and 21/27 mpg for AWD models.
Standard driver-assist and active safety features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. Adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, and rain-sensing windshield wipers are included on all trim levels above the base.
The Tiguan manages to fit three rows of seats into its compact footprint, although its third row is extraordinarily cramped. Tiguan models with FWD have the third row as standard, but AWD models make it optional.
The Tiguan's front-row headroom measures inches (in the pre model; we don't expect any changes with interior specs), which compares to inches in the Kia Sorento, a slightly more expensive SUV that also has an occasional-use third row. Second-row headroom is inches in three-row models or inches in two-row models, both close to the Sorento's inches. There are just inches of headroom in the third row of Tiguans so equipped, less than the inches found in the Sorento's standard third row.
Front-row legroom is inches in the Tiguan, slightly less than the Sorento's inches. Second-row legroom measures inches in two-row Tiguan models and inches in three-row models, both trailing the Sorento's inches by quite a lot. Third-row legroom is a torturous inches in the Volkswagen, although the Kia's inches isn't much better.
Cargo space measures cubic feet in Tiguans equipped with the third-row seat. Folding it down increases capacity to cubic feet, while folding the second row as well takes maximum cargo space to cubic feet.
It's a slightly different situation in two-row Tiguans. With the second-row seats upright cargo capacity measures cubic feet, which increases to cubes when those seats are folded down.
For the Tiguan receives a digital gauge display, measuring inches as standard or inches in higher-end trims. The standard infotainment touchscreen measures inches, and increases to inches in higher-end models.
The larger screen runs Volkswagen's updated MIB3 user interface with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and brings USB type-C ports in the first and second rows along with a wireless charging pad. Built-in navigation is available. On the steering wheel there are now touch-capacitive buttons, similar to what was added to the recently refreshed Arteon. A six-speaker audio system is standard, and a nine-speaker Fender premium setup is available. A degree parking camera system is optional or included depending on trim.
Let's make something clear: The Tiguan's driving performance isn't sporty. Nevertheless, Volkswagen's R-Line package helps it look like it is. On the Tiguan's exterior, the R-Line package adds aero-influenced front and rear bumpers, quad (fake) exhaust outlets, and package-specific alloy wheels.
Inside, the Tiguan R-Line gets metal pedal covers and a flat-bottom steering wheel with big thumb detents that actually feels really nice. Nothing changes under the hood, but the R-Line package gives the Tiguan more curbside appeal.

Volkswagen's Tiguan is a European take on an American classic—the SUV. It offers more athletic handling than many of its rivals, and its cabin has a restrained vibe with plenty of trendy technology features. While the Tiguan hasn't proved to be particularly quick at our test track, the turbocharged four-cylinder engine performs dutifully, sounds refined, and will pass muster with most buyers. Although the Tiguan is sold in global markets, U.S. dealerships only peddle the long-wheelbase model, which means a third row of seats is available for those who need it. That kind of cabin flexibility is something that rivals such as the Honda CR-V, the Mazda CX-5, and the Toyota RAV4 don't offer.
What's New for ?
Volkswagen has given its compact SUV a handsome styling refresh for to help it look at home alongside the restyled Atlas and new Atlas Cross Sport mid-size SUVs. New LED headlamps, revised grille and bumpers, and new wheel designs give the Tiguan a more modern appearance. The Tiguan's cabin receives updates as well, in the form of a new steering wheel with touch-sensitive controls. Heated seats and a digital gauge display are now standard across the lineup. All models except the base S also receive a new touch-sensitive climate control panel, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and a semi-autonomous driving mode that VW calls Travel Assist. The Tiguan's third row of seats will remain an option. Expect the Tiguan to appear in VW showrooms by the end of
Pricing and Which One to Buy
Stepping up to the mid-range SE trim adds inch wheels, a power-operated rear liftgate, lane-keeping assist, and the new semi-autonomous driving mode. A panoramic sunroof is a $ option on the SE and may be worth the upgrade for buyers who like to catch a few rays while driving.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
Under the hood of every Tiguan is a turbocharged four-cylinder that makes horsepower; front-wheel drive is standard but Volkswagen's 4Motion all-wheel-drive system is optional. This is a sporty, fun-to-drive SUV with a smooth, willing engine and a well-coordinated automatic transmission. Like most of its competitors it's far from fast, but it makes up for that with a taut ride, athletic handling, and responsive steering with a whisper of sportiness that recalls VW's well-respected GTI hot hatchback. The Tiguan's brake-pedal action is soft and it doesn't match up to the firm, progressive pedals we enjoy in other members of VW's family tree. At our test track, the Tiguan delivered a rather languid second zero-tomph time. On the road, the Tiguan doesn't feel as slow as its test results indicate, with enough low-end grunt to feel perky around town. Merging onto the highway may be the only time you'll wish the Tiguan had a bit more power.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The EPA estimates that the front-wheel drive model will be the most frugal, with ratings of 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. All-wheel drive drops those numbers by 1 mpg each and going with the SEL R-Line results in an additional 1 mpg penalty. When we get a chance to test the Tiguan on our mph highway fuel economy test, we'll update this story with results. For more information about the Tiguan's fuel economy, visit the EPA's website.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
The Tiguan's interior is classically Volkswagen, which is to say that it is simple and functional but not particularly stylish. Others offer more legroom in the second row, but the Tiguan is one of the only vehicles in the class that can be had with seating for seven. The Tiguan comes standard with cloth seating and partial power adjustment for the front seats. Opting into more expensive versions can net full power adjustment for the driver, faux-leather seating, and a panoramic sunroof. With just 12 cubic feet of cargo space behind the available third row, the Tiguan simply can't be a hauling vehicle when the third row is in use. With the third row folded, the Tiguan's cargo measurements put it about in the middle of this class for raw space. With all the seats folded, we fit 19 of our carry-on boxes in the Tiguan, less than we stuffed inside key rivals including the CR-V
Infotainment and Connectivity
Volkswagen's infotainment system is sleek-looking but features touch-sensitive controls integrated into a large glass screen which we have found difficult to use. The system comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so drivers who prefer their smartphone's familiar interface to Volkswagen's system are in luck; a Wi-Fi hotspot is standard. A watt nine-speaker Fender audio system is available for audiophiles, but only in upper trims. All models come with either an or inch digital gauge display which can be reconfigured to display a variety of information.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
Forward-collision alert with automatic braking and a blind-spot warning system are standard, but Volkswagen charges extra for more desirable driver-assistance features such as lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control. For more information about the Tiguan's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:
- Standard automated emergency braking with forward collision warning
- Available lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist
- Available adaptive cruise control with semi-autonomous driving mode
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
What was previously the industry's best bumper-to-bumper warranty at six years and 72, miles of coverage has been shortened to four years or 50, miles. To help make that reduced coverage a little easier to handle, all new Volkswagens offer two years of regularly scheduled maintenance included at no charge.
- Limited warranty covers 4 years or 50, miles
- Powertrain warranty covers 4 years or 50, miles
- Complimentary maintenance is covered for 2 years or 20, miles

Volkswagen Tiguan review
Discounting the Tiguan R and the PHEV, the Tiguan is available in a range of trim grades, including Life, Active, Elegance and R-Line variants. As well as offering more goodies inside, each grade is clearly distinguished by a different exterior finish, so you can tell them apart on the school run.
The Tiguan R has its own single specification, and we’re still waiting for confirmation of available spec levels for the eHybrid although we’ve already driven the car in Elegance trim.
Prices for mainstream models range from around £27,, although the hot R version is nearly £46, and the PHEV will likely top the line-up at around £47,, although prices are still to be confirmed. You need to be careful adding kit from the options list, particularly with higher-spec cars, as this will quickly push the price up over the £40, mark and incur a higher rate of tax.
Volkswagen has kept the Tiguan engine range fairly simple - a litre TSI petrol unit is available with either bhp or bhp, while there's a litre diesel engine in bhp or bhp guise. Petrol cars are front-wheel-drive only, although the lower-powered diesel is offered as a two- or four-wheel-drive version.
The top-of-the-range litre TDI car only comes with Volkswagen's 4Motion all-wheel-drive system. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard for lower- to medium-spec versions, with a seven-speed DSG auto available thereafter.
The Tiguan R uses the bhp litre turbocharged petrol engine and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission from the Golf R, coupled to a standard 4Motion set-up, while the Tiguan eHybrid adopts the litre petrol engine and 12kWh battery from the Golf GTE.
