2013 Volkswagen Tiguan S 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I love my 2013 VW Tiguan S.
It's build with quality, and great design on both the exterior and interior. With the manuel 6 speed transmission, the pick up and handling are excellent, which makes having to use premium gas much less painful. The engine is extremely quite and very responsive.
Cargo room could be a bit more generous.
Overall a great vehicle!
My favorite features are excellent pick up and handling, as well a smooth shifting manuel 6 speed transmission.

I am a faithful VW driver, 4 vehicles over the last 13 years. You either love em or hate em! I buy Volkswagons for German styling, fit and finish, and enjoyable driving experience. They fit a pricing niche above Toyotas and Hondas and below Audi and BMW.The Tiguan is a typical example of a stylish, functional and truly enjoyable vehicle. Among the reasons to enjoy a Tiguan, is not being one of every ten cars on the road being a CRV or a Rav4.
Panoramic sun roof, overall looks and styling, great acceleration.
Inside liftgate release, a curious omission for a company that stresses details.
Cargo space is not usually an issue as I don't do a lot of hauling other than groceries and smaller items. Admittedly, hauling four people and four large suitcases to the airport may be an issue.

The interior is very comfortable with great features.
Performance lags -- down right awful on hot summer day w/AC on.
Not only does it guzzle down a lot more gas - expensive premium gas I may add but it becomes erratic when idling or in traffic.
Try taking your foot off the brake when in traffic with the ac on and watch your car lurch forward without giving it gas.
Not to mention the sound it makes while your foot is on the brake while the engine sounds like a helicopter hovering overhead.

upscale fit and finish
fun to drive
transmission droning sounds
test drive it for a while
just the right size for a small SUV
fit and finish
on S mode it becomes really thirsty
get rid of the sunroof mesh or provide the option
of a full sun block screen
should come with tinted windows
should cost less

Just got the '13 Tiguan S w/panoramic sunroof & mat kit for my wife and we love this car. Small CUV that handles like a sport sedan with all tried and true German automotive attributes: sophisticated & understated interior and exterior styling, satisfying performance & handling and rock solid build.
After driving both the S and SE, the S is already so well equipped incl. leather wrapped multi-function steering wheel, MFD display, bluetooth etc. that we couldn't justify the extra $5k or so for leatherette and lower profile tires. Great ride, great family car, excellent lease deals to be had.
2.0T engine shared with the GTI i.e. a power train that is a cut above the competition, excellent handling and composed road manners, comfortable, plush ride and upscale interior. Panoramic Audi-like sunroof, 6 speed Automatic Tiptronic transmission w/Manual mode, steering wheel, etc.
None. People say this car is too expensive compared to the competition but like the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Pay less and get something cheap, pay a little more and get something good. VW continues to lead the way in stylish, rewarding 'driver's cars'. If you don't care about driving or cars and are content to drive an appliance car day in and day out (Rav4, CRV, etc. i.e. washing machine on wheels), then don't buy a Tiguan. If you want something more, go VW>
