2012 Volkswagen Tiguan S 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


I looked at and test drove several comparable SUV's to include Equinox, CR-V, Escape, Outlander Sport, Mazda CX-7, Sportage, Tucson and of course the Tiguan. After a couple of months I had the Tiguan and Equinox as top contenders. They both had minor concerns with the transmission. The Equinox did have a "kick" after decelerating and the Tiguan does have a "lagging" effect when it drops automatically into 6th gear at around 30-35 mph but here's the remedy to that...just throw it into Sport mode and it wakes right up. I truly enjoy the feel, ride, tightness and especially the performance/sound of the engine when you drop it down to pass or enter the freeway. Enjoy....I certainly do.

Best Features

Agility, performance and the overall functionality of the seats.

Worst Features

Magazine holders (storage) on the back of the seats.
