2012 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL 4Motion 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)

Review

I think these vehicles tend to be higher priced than other similar vehicles (RAV4, etc)...which if you compare features, may seem expensive, but build quality and driving characteristics outclass these other small utes. Build quality is excellent and contains many features found in luxury German vehicles, especially on the SEL. My only gripe about the new Tiguan is the overeager automatic transmission where it wants to get into 6th gear at very low speeds, which is a bit awkward. Overall, even though this is not a vehicle I typically buy, I couldn't be happier with it. I highly recommend it if your in the market for quality small SUV.

Best Features

Almost drives like a German sedan and handles great. TSI turbo engine is zippy and matches well with the vehicle (transmission is another story). Excellent back seat space.

Worst Features

VW needs to reprogram the automatic transmission, as others have stated. Could use a little more space in the cargo area.
