2010 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV SEL 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Good but small SUV, to my taste. The cabin is hushed, the engine is not intrusive unlike in RAV4, though also a 4 cyl and a turbo on top of that. Eats up potholes very well. Brakes are one of the best ones, cornering and steering feel is very precise. Transmission is smooth and shift quickly and when needed. On the downside, the accelerator pedal is not very sensitive and is too stiff for me. The car does not respond immediately to the pedal input (either a turbo lag or just a pedal being too stiff). You notice a huge difference when you release the accelerator pedal, the car almost jolts and doesn't roll, what other cars normally do. Also limited visibility from the front.


Best Features

Cabin ergonomics, good brakes, cornering, steering feel, overall engine performance, hushed cabin.


Worst Features

Accelerator pedal is stiff, responds poorly to input. Visibility upfront is not good, especially for taller drivers (I'm 6"1'), you feel like driving a tank (you'll know what I'm talking about if you had driven one.) Cargo room is cramped compared to competition.

Review

Let's face it-you can get from point A to point B in almost any vehicle. But if you are in the market for a small SUV and want to go in style, you can't go wrong with a Tiguan! Handling is very responsive, the ride very quiet and controlled, and visibility is great, including upward with the full length sun roof. The Tiguan is solidly built and the doors close with a satisfying "thunk". I have had my Tiguan for about 2 months (white gold with cashmere interior-very classy) and am getting 30 MPG (admittedly mostly highway).


Best Features

Classy understated interior; very comfortable seats; full length sunroof; quiet ride; very good headlights


Worst Features

Information center should tell what the tire pressures are - not just tell you after pressure gets too low
