2011 Volkswagen Tiguan SE 4dr SUV w/Sunroof, Navigation (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Having driven a mini cooper S for the past five years, I was dreading the thought of driving something even as big as a crossover. However, the Tiguan feels almost as sporty as my mini. The handling is terrific! In my comparison shopping, I didn't find anything else in the crossover segment that compares to the interior quality and zippy nature of the Tiguan. Get it.
The panoramic sunroof is definitely worth every dime! My passengers love it. I test drove one without it and the interior had such a different feel.
Of course...the gas mileage could definitely be improved and I wish it didn't take premium, but I've grown accustomed to that with my mini, so not a big change for me.
