My GTI's Big Brother

2013 Volkswagen Tiguan S 4dr SUV w/Sunroof (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


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.

Favorite Features

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.

Suggested Improvements

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>
