2010 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
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).
Classy understated interior; very comfortable seats; full length sunroof; quiet ride; very good headlights
Information center should tell what the tire pressures are - not just tell you after pressure gets too low
