60sec road test
Neatly styled, neat handling, a neat interior. You get the picture; the Tiguan is generally an agreeable car that’s easy to live with, albeit a bit short on personality. It’s surprisingly decent to drive for a 4x4 and the power of the VW badge means it’ll be easy to shift come resale time. Front-drive, four-wheel drive, petrol, diesel, manual, DSG – you pays your money…
The one we’d buy
SE BlueMotion 2.0 4MOTION 140
The one we’d avoid like the plague
The basic S trim – it’s a bit stingy on kit for the price. 1.4 TSI engine lacks a bit of oomph
Rivals to consider
BMW X1, Ford Kuga, Honda CR-V, Land Rover Discovery Sport, Mercedes GLA, Skoda Yeti
Comfortable, decent to drive, durable interior
