Bought our 2014 Tiguan R-Line and love it!
The rear cargo room is a bit small and I was super nervous about rear leg room if the trunk was that small but it was more roomy than a 2014 Escape!
I was amazed!
Leather seats are comfy and the memory seats are great too!
Off the line, there is about a full second of turbo lag but after that, it's gone.
Engine sounds throaty and has a great exhaust note.
We got 19mpg on mainly hwy driving which was disappointing but it's -10 where I live and I do accelerate hard on occasion, it also doesnt help that its not broken in!
Paying 40 grand is a lot especially when it doesnt have a backup camera or sat/nav(extra options) but still a fantastic CUV
Panoramic Sunroof, Bi-Xenon lights, Memory seats, leather seats, and the fast(but not so much efficient) 2.0t
Put in a TDI, up the horsepower a bit to 210-220, put the DSG in, make the mpg class competitive (at least 30 on the hwy), needs much more trunk room, less expensive and/or more kit as standard.
