Very nice but too small
By frenchguy007 on
2014 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL 4Motion 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Great SUV but the cargo space is quite lacking compared to the competition (50% less space!). The wheelbase also makes for a choppy ride on rougher roads. Wish that VW would make the Tiguan longer so that it would give a more comfortable ride (both in interior space and road manners).
The ride issue is due to the 18" wheels that
The SEL has.
You may have road tested the SE with the 16" wheels and felt the ride was fine. It is unfortunate that the SEL comes with 18" wheels but this is a simple thing to fix just by buying aftermarket 16" wheels and tires.
Sales people wont point out the difference because their commission is better with the SEL.
