My first car was a VW so I am use to the German car ride performance, but I do like my CR-V. The Navigation system is very fun to use and there is plenty of cargo space. I looked at the Tiguan and it was fun and spunky to drive, but the reliability of vw having own one myself, is terrible. So I got the CR-V and am happy thus far.
Navigation system...very fun to use with the touch screen.
The heated seats are terrible, I put mine on high and can barley feel them on. The car does have wind noise come into the cabin and a bit jumpy while driving and lags on speed.
