Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Having driven one for the last 12 months, Harvin Tiwana, of Car Lease Supermarket, is well placed to give her verdict on the Volkswagen Tiguan. 


The second generation Tiguan is extremely popular against its rivals such as the BMW X1 and Kia Sportage, which now also comes in an Allspace model which is designed to compete against the SUV-like people carriers such as the Peugeot 5008 and Skoda Kodiaq. It is actually VW’s first SUV based on the ‘MQB’ architecture which makes this car easy to drive.


Inside the Volkswagen Tiguan

The inside of the Tiguan is classic for VW and links up effortlessly with your smartphone. With this being the first SUV style vehicle I have had it was lovely to have the high-set driving position which is comfortable and is great for visibility. The boot is wide and deep which made it an ideal car for becoming a first time mum to fit my lovely I Candy push chair in.


How it drives

The Tiguan is a very easy drive which has a lot to do with the MQB architecture and in the 2.0 TDI engine accompanied with the DSG gearbox smooths over speed bumps effortlessly. The steering is very light and precise making it a joy to drive.

My verdict

Being the first SUV style vehicle I have driven and having chosen this car specifically for fitting the bill as a ‘family’ vehicle I would say that it has ticked all boxes for me.
