2011 Volkswagen Tiguan SE 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


This is actually the second Tiguan we've bought in 4 months. The first was totaled with a head on 45 mph crash with a vehicle twice its size. We survived because the crash cage is 3.9 times that of the federal safety standards according to the police officer. Hence when it came to a replacement, it was this, the Volvo XC60 (or if we could wait for it Saab 94X). We chose the Tiguan as its more fun to drive than the XC60, has a nice interior, and although the ride can be firm (along with the seats). It eats through the miles quickly. The interior is slightly different to the 2010 model. I prefer the old steering wheel controls and stick shift, but ipod/phone integration is a lot better.

Favorite Features

Torque (thanks to the GTi engine in it), precise steering, visibility, great media center, interior that is close to that of an Audi, quietness, safety cage.

Suggested Improvements

To me, some parts of the interior look like they have cheapened slightly since 2010, but that could just be my impression. A backup camera would be handy, along with a bigger trunk, which is the only weakness of the model. Still, for the day to day run to work and the daycare center, its fine.
