2011 Volkswagen Tiguan SE 4Motion 4dr SUV AWD w/Sunroof, Navigation (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Bought my Tiguan in Nov, 2010.
Driven 15K miles to this point.
Wanted an SUV for the AWD, but didn't want a tank.
4Motion handles outstanding in snow, sleet, and rain.
Panoramic sunroof is awesome.
Engine accelerates smoothly.
I haven't experienced significant delay as others have mentioned. Strong engine with sufficient torque at low RPM's.
Somewhat pricey ($31,630 + tax), but I've experienced zero issues with vehicle since purchase.
German design and build provides value not found in domestic vehicles at this point, IMO.
Excellent 2.0 engine!.
SE 4 Motion model has 18" rims which look great.
Panoramic sunroof is unique... great on those overcast winter Midwest days.
Design looks great.
AWD is fantastic in inclimate weather.
Gas mileage has underperformed versus sticker (no surprise!).
I'm averaging 18 city/23 hwy.
Larger Navigation screen would be a nice upgrade, considering the price point.
Seats are only partially powered.... full power is needed.
Add a Diesel TDI version!!!.
